Alt-C is an app that makes getting text between your PC and Smart Devices extremely easy.

Copy text from your PC to your Smart device's clipboard, and Paste text from your device's clipboard to your PC, instantly! All you need is the PC application, and the Android application on your device. No sign-in is required. (You do need to be signed in to your Google Account on your device since the application uses Google Cloud Messaging)

Configure Alt-C to open specific types of text in various applications. Open URLs in your Web Browser, Email addresses in your email app, GPS co-ordinates in your Maps app, Phone Numbers in the Dialer and Text in your favourite note taking application. Configure your Alt-C Auto Launch experience under Settings!
(ALL Text is parsed on the device itself)
