    Default Jonesin' for some copy/paste? iCopy's gotcha covered.


    Ya'll have been grumblin for copy/paste for ages now, and iCopy has come to the rescue.

    So far its only working in Safari, but a VERY useful start! The author has a launch thread right here on MMi, and you can visit his site via your iPhone to install the app.

    Looking forward to where this goes as development continues...

    Default Its a start...
    It's ok but it is a little bit of a hassle. I want a native app that on any screen if activated you can choose the section you want copied then go to where you want it pasted and tap the area you want it pasted and hit paste and there you have it. This is extremely limited because it is only on the internet and it is a little confusing. Its a start but I wanna be able to copy text from anywhere, not just the internet.

    Yes a bit of a hassle, but its better than we've had before. Its definitely a great start and it certainly accomplishes one thing I've been wanting which is to easily e-mail someone a link to a webpage so for that it works great.

    Very nice indeed. Since this is all Javascript, maybe someone could "Jiggy" it up to use with other apps?

    Man I Love seeing the advancement of the iphone and what it and its users are capable of! I saying "What will they think of next?" is never going to get old. LoL

    Not to be a jerk, but if you're serious then don't use it or make one yourself.

    yea i totally agree with you
    its great and all but it only useful in some instances
    which i don't really don't know why types of instances i can use it but
    if i wanted to copy a lot of text its pretty good.

    As I said in the other thread, horrible interface, excellent app. Potential is there for this to be the app of the year if he hammers out the workings of the app. From what he said in the thread he started here, he's focusing on small bugs and trying to make it where you can copy single words, rather than working on the interface, so I suggest another developer pick this one up and run with it as we can have a good working interface that works for us.

    Props for the development though, he's sitting on a monster if he'll polish it up.

    OK, I have a decent idea. Much in the same way that the dock and capture programs work, this program could be quite well with an interface that is less painful. Using the script at hand for the current dock or capture programs, if the interface floated or could be brought up by using something like a flick of the mute switch, this would make the app quite interesting as long as it removed all the back and forth here and there to get this done.

    Flips the switch and the program comes up in safari. Do something and it copies, do something and it pastes. as long as it is based on buttons already available. Just get creative.
