Copy and paste links, text, or files from desktop to smartphone

Overcoming a major challenge

One major annoyance for smartphone owners is the inability to copy and paste text, images, links or even files from a smartphone device to a desktop. There are various apps available, but now, simply visiting the Hopper website, no native app is required to complete this frequently necessary task.

The web app helps users transfer information simply without relying on third party apps that require users open and launch apps like Evernote, rather lets users stay in their browser. The app currently works for iPhone users with an Android solution on the way, and the user interface couldn’t be simpler or easier to understand.

All users have to do is go to the Hopper site on their iPhone and access any files, text or photos saved from their desktop. Copy and paste links, keep notes, and keep your mobile life in sync with your stationary desktop life.

We see this as a great problem solver for sending phone numbers and addresses to your smartphone for later use in the field, or product links to view while shopping for comparison purposes, and even photos for professional use and reference while on the job.

    Sounds like a good alternate solution. Although I have to say I rarely do anything other than text for which I use Simplenote. I also like Simplenote because I can categorize notes and it works across platforms – Windows/Mac/iOS/Android.

    I don't usually have to transfer photos. Although if you need to iOS does offer Photo Stream.

    For files I use Dropbox by default. So no matter what, my business files are always with me. I really don't even think of it as Dropbox anymore. It's just where my files go.
