Remember: Apple hasn't approved this yet...

I mean if we're giving credit to companies for revolutionizing the way we interface with computers you might as well give the credit to Xerox, they're the ones that truly invented the GUI that Steve and Bill eventually copied in their own OSes.
As for Copy and Paste on the iPhone, I believe it would have to do with exactly how many patents MS has on the way they do it with the PocketPC. I mean when you fired up any newly bought PPC, one of the first things they made you go through was the Copy and Paste tutorial. I don't ever remember going through that on any of my Palm Pilots, heck, did Palm even have Copy and Paste?
We got exchange and push sooner that Copy and Paste so you have to wonder just how deep MS' patents on their methodology actually go.
07-31-2008, 03:26 AM #44its not really useful where we need it
Cut and paste needs to either be attached to all keyboards within the system or specifically within Safari, SMS, email and contacts at the very least to be considered useful.
I won't be buying this app, i don't need it. I don't think anyone does.
Close but SOO far...

Without 3rd party community, users are at the mercy of Apple deciding what apps we can use or not. In other words, we lose control over the phones we paid for.

Is this another notepad that doesn't sync with anything?

I think the point of this app is to first of all, have a rich text editor with copy/paste, which will be useful in SOME instances, but also to demonstrate to apple how it could be done easily and gracefully. Once it's available in the App Store, the pressure will be on apple to incorporate it into 2.1

......What I do know is it's a sad, sad day when copy and paste is generating this much hype.

1. go to appstore and install any flashlight app (actually there are a lot).
2. adjust your phone's brightness to MINIMUM.
3. open the flashlight up downloaded from appstore.
4. Now, can you call it a flashlight? will it be useful?
Now, try this (if your phone is jailbroken):
1. look for a flashlight app (by bigboss) in Cydia and install it.
2. make sure your phone's brightness is set to MINIMUM.
3. run the flashlight app downloaded from Cydia.
4. Now that's very useful (or at least for me).
AppStore doesnt allow 3rd party apps to modify any system UI/settings hence the flashlights there doesn't adjust the brightness to maximum. This is just one of the reasons why we need Cydia/Intaller to install awesome apps like Customize, Summerboard (not sure if it will be ported), and a lot more.
I hope you get it now.PHILGIN SOLUTIONS INTERACTIVE

Thing is Installer/Cydia apps are unapproved Apple apps, so you don't know what they do to your iPhone.
Well for me there were many apps that always ended up crashing my iPhone and many times causing me to jailbreak and unlock again (thank god zibri was always there when my iPhone got messed up). Anyway most apps from 3rd party installers are soon going to start costing.

the only problem with incorporating it with the keyboard would technically "modify" apples firmware. I see no problem with this but once the app is released I can take a look at how they do it and maybe host on cydia! Stay Tuned.....
