*** IMPORTANT:  Make sure your devices are compatible with Bluetooth LE before purchasing. You can find the list of compatible devices below. ***

Scribe 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.

See your sent history, copy, enter URL links, call or add contact numbers, and share items in a great interface.

NEW UPDATE: Scribe now routes your snippet directly into other apps! You can now send an address directly into the Maps app, send copied text directly into Whatsapp as a new message or Twitter as a new tweet! Pressing “CMD + SHIFT + X” now gives you a menu where you can select the iOS app you want to send your copied item to. Just swipe the notification you receive, and let Scribe do the rest.

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 LE. Here’s a list of all compatible Mac and iOS models:

Macbook Air - 2011 or newer
Macbook Pro - 2012 or newer
iMac - Late 2012 or newer
Mac Mini - 2011 or newer
Mac Pro - Late 2013 or newer

iPhone - 4S or newer
iPad - 3rd generration or newer
iPad Mini - All generations
iPod Touch - 5th generation or newer

Hint: You can check your Mac’s model by clicking on the Apple Icon > About this Mac > More Info

Copy from iOS to Mac?

I found your handy app while looking for a solution to copy text between Apple devices without Wi-Fi. I have been able to use Scribe to copy from my Mac to my iPhone, which is cool.

Am I correct in understanding that the app is only designed to work in that direction, or is it also possible to copy text from an iOS device to the Mac (which is really what I find myself wanting to do more often)?

Ummm, zero stars.

I can’t even get the app until y’all at least update to 15.1. Y’all are extremely behind for the iPhones and I won’t be having them type of problematic issues just lurking around on my iPhone due to your application. Fix it, I may be a returning customer, IF not, peace out! My husband (being an Apple Developer) and myself just dabbing my feet into it, apps like this are dominating and they’re gonna pass yours in time and I mean STOMP on yours if y’all don’t play, “Ketchup”. Lol! All In all, wish you the best of luck but it’s disappointing that y’all are this behind. *Tisk Tisk*

Not a bad way to transfer text...

I got 2 iphones and and iPad, so far I can only seem to link one device at a time, and relinking is tedious.. please allow several devices to be linked and it gets 5 stars
