    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?
    Were you searching on your phone or on this website? I got the same thing you listed above on my phone but on the website I got three different Clippy apps that showed up. It really doesnt matter because either way I'm sure if you tried to get the older version app it will probably direct you to the most recent version. I have been playing around with Clippy, is there any kind of tutorial available? I cant get it to copy something from the internet (safari) and paste it into an email or text. Anyone know how to do this, if it can be done? And I saw the previous post with screenshots that said you had to have the text editior up (the keyboard) in order for it to work.

    Clippy and hClipboard co-existed fine on my iPhone, even though I've since gotten rid of Clippy.

    Looks like CLIPPY and HCLIPBOARD bites the dust in the 3.0 firmware. I guess it was good while it lasted.lol :-)

    Does Apple's copy&paste offer a clipboard? I don't think Apple's implementation necessarily needs to kill Clippy/hClipboard.

    You're right, and besides, who would want to wait for another half year or so when you can use these tools right now?
    Windows tool to edit .plist, .strings and .nib files: pledit.
    Or use a website that will convert the binary form to a readable format.
    On iPhone you can convert those files in a terminal with plutil (installed with Erica Utilities from Cydia), or edit them with iFile (from Cydia).

    Good point. A clipboard would be more ideal than just 1 item at a time... So i guess its safer to say its only a matter of time.

    Right. I'm still using them right now as well but isn't only a matter of time after the summer?


    Don't get me wrong, I love clippy, but now that its CCP is going to be native it kinda defeats the purpose right? How many of us are using Magic Pad? Are we using any alternate calenders? Just throwing a thought or two out there.

    Anyone tried the new Clippy add ons - Clippy Dial and Clippy scroll?

    Can't figure out how clippy dial works and Clippy scroll crashed everytime I try to scroll

    In fact with the new addons, Clippy crashed the 2nd time i try to copy something from a webpage

    updated to 0.97-2

    press and hold on "123" brings up pop up screen. do that the 2nd time = CRASH

    0.97-2 is the buggiest version yet, on my iPhone. It rarely works. In text fields, copy-paste works most of the time. In Safari, the popup only says "Stack". In App Store apps it does nothing.

    In 0.97-3 on my phone it works most of the time. Not in Cydia and some App Store apps, but in most other situations it does. EDIT: In the App Store itself, Clippy can only copy the application names, but not any text from the descriptions. I'd say it works with about 3/4ths of the apps I have tried.

    One more round of bugfixing and they have created a really great way to copy-paste. I think it is no coincidence that the copy-paste function Apple put in firmware 3.0 looks a lot like Clippy: it's a typical Apple-style, user-friendly implementation.

    0.97-4: more or less the same performance as 0.97-3. No luck in Cydia and some App Store apps, and in App Store it copies app names but not any other text -- though it did, once.

    I have disabled the activation through the 123-button because simply clicking and holding inside the text also brings up the popup menu. Like it even better this way, completely intuitive. And have set the delay to 0.70s so it's become quite efficient. I really hope they manage to make it work everywhere.

    Is it me or are these new updates for Clippy making it even worse? The popup just randomly starts showing when I haven't even touched the screen, it's being doing it a lot lately. I've increased the time aswell but still doesn't make a difference.
    Apple might add a clipboard in the final version of 3.0, you never know.
