    This may sound unimportant/silly, but I was wondering if there is a Cydia tweak that allows you to copy an image you see in Chrome or Safari (long press on the image) and paste it somewhere else (like in a text message or email). Sometimes if I want to send someone a picture I find online, I have to save it to my Photos app and only then copy it into a text/email.

    Anyone know if there is a tweak like this out there?

    Image Grabber maybe? It needs to be updated though. I'd be interested in the same for the once in awhile time I need to do it.

    You can already do that in safari. Long press on the picture until a menu pops up. Select "Copy" instead of "Save Image". Open your mail. Long press then Paste.

    How about that. I use Chrome exclusively so I just figured it was an iPhone problem, not a missing feature in Chrome. I did a quick search and apparently the image copy feature is also missing in Chrome for Android. Too bad. I wonder if this could be a tweak that someone could create (I admit that I have no idea what it would actually entail).

    I was hoping someone would make a tweak for Chrome too to copy images without saving them. It shouldn't be too hard?
