Update: Sharing the Clipboard between iOS and Windows

This post is now updated (9/7/2013)!

A while back I wrote a post on various apps and hacks that allow you to share text and images easily between an iPhone and your laptop or desktop PC (click here). Since that time, although myPhoneDesktop has been updated, and I have started using it again, several other of the apps and web-apps that I have used have ceased development and have not updated for Apple’s newer equipment. I’ve done some testing, and have two new apps to recommend. The app AirForShare is awsome for two-way sharing of text and files between iPhone and PC (both devices should be on the same WiFi network). The app ShareClip is even more powerful, especially nice for when you want your two devices to actually share the same clipboard over an extended period. The initial setup takes a little bit of effort but is easily done. When you use it, be sure to take advantage of the "music workaround" that keeps the app running in the background for a long, long time.

Thanks for your help. Share Clipboard (shareclip) seems to work well.
