you double tap and then swipe, after you let go, the clippy popup will come up with the options for (copy paste stack etc.)

Double tap and swipe? Do you have to do this when it's a full moon with your left hand?
I'm glad we don't have this much hassle with hClipboard.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

Not quicker than hClipboard because you still have to hold down, swipe, and select copy. hClipboard involves 2 taps: globe then copy button. Any time holding is involved, it's slower.
Clippy is more intuitive though I'll give it that, but it's not faster.

I think it now comes down to personal choice. I haven't tried Clippy for a while and am happy with hClipboard.
Apart from the selection methods is there anything one does that the other doesn't?He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

hClipboard also allows quicker access to the "Stack" for pasting. I've used both. hClipboard brings it up with a tap. Clippy brings it up by holding, still longer. I use stack a lot and the extra time sucks.
To me it hasn't taken over. It's good to have choice cuz everyone will use the features differently and have their own taste. SMS apps are an example. Choice is good. And I don't forsee one taking over the other, especially when 3.0 firmware is rumoured to include copy/paste, lol

Just downloaded ... I love it, Great Job ... makes life so much easier

I think it's largely a matter of taste between the two programs. I don't like bookmarklets and have a few other keyboards installed, so in my situation Clippy saves time (also because you can set the hold time to a lower value). But for others in different circumstances hClipboard may be faster.

Why have yopu downloaded the toggle? All you need is clippy - why can't you get it to work?
By 'the other one' do you mean hClipboard?

Edit: If you search through Cydia on your phone, then only one "Clippy" is displayed. There were other clippy's listed (a clippy search, and something else) but I did not mess with them, I only installed the "Clippy" app only.

That's a bit different - when I searched for clippy all I get is clippy, clippy SBSettings Toggle and clippy Search and I thought that's what he was referring too.
If you are seeing different versions could it be because you have added different sources - some of whom have old versions?Mine is on iSpazio (System) - which sources are you using?
