Copying and pasting between devices can be a little tricky, but if you don’t want to rely on Wi-Fi, Scribe is a new OS X app ( with iOS companion app ) thats lets you copy anything from your Mac to your mobile device, without Wi-Fi. Select text, links, numbers or small images, and simply press “COMMAND + SHIFT + X” to instantly transfer your selection from your Mac to your iOS Device. Scribe allows you to see your sent history, copy, enter URL links, call or add contact numbers, and share items in a great interface.
Scribe uses Bluetooth Low Energy; a new technology that constantly keeps your devices paired and provides a secure connection without eating up your battery life. You can literally use it all day and not feel the sting on your iPhone’s battery.
Since it doesn’t rely on Wi-Fi, Scribe doesn’t require a network connection to work. All you need are the devices you are already using. Scribe works on all Macs and iOS devices that support Bluetooth 4.0.
