Not at the moment, but it's on my "things that need to be done" list.

Adding iOS clipboard support probably wouldn't be extremely difficult, 
because the API is very similar to the OS X API; I suspect it would be 
possible to more-or-less copy & paste the relevant code and tweak it a bit.

Adding Android clipboard support would require a lot more work.
