Advice on copying and pasting in mobile

I really need to be able to paste text in an LC field on mobile.

I can do it for iOS with the sunny text to speech external, but that external has an audio message that comes on when the app first opens, which would be rather confusing for users.

I have so far avoided LC builder because I felt I needed better documentation to learn it in the limited free time that I have. It seems like LC has provided some more tutorials now.

Here are my questions:

1. Can a widget (or library file) give us access to the clipboard on mobile devices? 

2. Are there any other existing externals that can do this?

My app is almost ready to submit, but it feels like the user should be able to paste content directly into the content field, which for other reasons cannot be a native field.

Thank you
