    Oh yea.. got it!!
    Between the 2, Hclipboard is superior. hate how Clippy hides the message bar. You'll need to tap the space next to "paste" to show it again... one more step)

    Also Hclipboard allows copying of multiple fields which comes in handy when copying eg the name and number of a contact. Clippy only allows copy of one field

    My 2 cents

    This was one of my major gripes with Clippy: it can't copy editable text fields within Safari.
    hClipboard CAN and it's a more full solution in my opinion. That bookmarklet was actually meant for use with hClipboard. Get it from Cydia, it's better. Here's instructions on how to use it. Don't forget to enable the hKeyboard in settings:

    i'm finding this app somewhat frustrating. it definitely works in certain instances, but it is in no way a replacement for a native clipboard. hopefully they can figure it out.

    okay, i got rid of clippy and downloaded hclipboard and i like the feel of it way more. it almost feels like a true clipboard... not quite, but we're patiently getting there.

    Is there a limited number of characters you can copy and paste? The last copy/paste program I tried wouldn't allow too many characters :/

    Using both clippy and hClipboard and finding them both extremely useful. A Big thanks to the developers.

    From reading the comments and personal use of clippy, lots of ppl are using hclipboard instead. What would u guys recommend? Has the update to clippy helped?

    I couldn't get hpclipboard to work.
    But the update to Clippy works very well.
    The stack and double tap feature works really good in txt messages if you don't have an alternative txt application.

    I've used both and they each have their pros and cons.

    Clippy is simple and to the point which some people will like over the more complex/robust hClipboard. That said, it seems Clippy is the only one that works in password fields.

    hClipboard has a better approach imo. It let's you copy whole sections, and has the ability to store multiple things at a time. But like previously mentioned, it doesn't show up on password fields.

    Also, they both play well with each other so it really doesn't hurt trying both.

    EDIT: Oh yeah, Clippy doesn't copy from Safari (but can paste to it.

    EDIT2: The Clippy Update is awesome. The stack option throws it over hClipboard for me. Now it just needs to be able to copy from Safari :P

    It doesn't seem easy to make it highlight. Hit or miss for me. Mostly miss.

    Default Still Trying
    I have yet to enable Clippy. I have a modded neo-white space bar keyboard with emoji enable. I downloaded twice and everytime I tap the "123" or globe icon, nothings there. anyone else having issues like this? No clippy with Emoji or modded keyboard?

    *EDIT*
    Tracking this issue seems to me like people with a ".?123" button instead of an "@123" are having this issue also.

    *EDIT*
    ok, i found the problem.

    If you are an intelliscreen user and have app launch boot enabled, you have to activate clippy in the “performance” setting menu…

    Do you have Intelliscreen? I too have a modded keyboard and got both copy/paste apps to work once I 'enabled' them in the performance boost section in IS. Good luck

    I like the new update. I deleted it for hClipboard but the new features of Clippy are handy.
    I noticed Clippy can now copy text that is within webpage text fields in Safari. Very nice add. It also now saves your last copies to a 'stack' or clipboard for use later.
    The one downside I have noticed is that you can't select specific parts of a text field in Safari. If you click copy, it will copy the whole field and I couldn't find a way to highlight anything in the field. This is where hClipboard is better.
    It's a nice update nonetheless and I now use both.
    Clippy for quick copy/paste and hClipboard for specific copy/paste and for it's clipboard. They complement each other nicely.

    Almost perfection in 0.93! The semi-transparent buttons are GREAT! The double-tap to copy SMS is AMAZING. I also love the new stacking ability!

    Now, the final hurdle is copying text from web pages.
