Is there an iPhone/Android/Windows version?

Not at this time. There are only versions for the Mac and iPad.

Can I transfer boards between machines?

Macs or iPads signed into the same iCloud account automatically share cloud boards. Boards can also be exported and imported to be shared across an entire organization. Suppose everyone in customer service needs the same board for writing email responses. One copy can be exported, emailed to all employees, and then imported by each employee into Text Board.

What apps does Text Board work with?

Text Board utilizes standard iOS and macOS paradigms like the clipboard, drag & drop, and share sheets to work with any other app. For instance, you use thread mode to quickly combine multiple snippets together and then have the result inserted onto the clipboard, ready to be pasted into any app. Or you can drag snippets directly from Text Board onto any app that supports text drops (most text fields do). And you can use the share sheet to provide a snippet to any app that has a share extension.

How can I backup my snippets?

Text Board can export a board, including all of its snippets, to a human and machine readable JSON format.
