    Has anyone tried out the new "cut and paste" feature? Do you like it? Was it what you expected?

    I am hopeful that it will be worth it for me to upgrade in order to get that feature.

    Also, do I understand correctly that you should now be able to "sync" Notes back to your computer from the ipod Touch?

    Thanks in advance...

    Yes to both. Though I don't know that it's worth $10 by itself. But you do get a lot of other features.

    Works great!

    I selected a large section of a document sent to me via email; copied it and pasted it into the notes app. It worked perfectly! Well worth it!

    The Copy and Paste works better than I first thought so that's good but Copy and Paste alone is not $10 good.

    The other features are okay I think the update is a little overpriced more so if you own a 1st gen iPod Touch like me.

    Apparently you can sync your notes to your computer but I have no idea where they are synced to :confused:, I tried a spotlight search on my Mac and couldn't find the notes.

    I really liked the cut copy and paste feature. At first I thought it would be hard to control but it isn't.

    I find the cut and paste feature really confusing to use. Randomly it will highlight something to copy, but when I want to actually use it, I can never get it to work. :confused:

    Just hold your finger down until the magnifier loop pops up and the let go. A Cut, Copy and Paste bubble will appear. Easy.

    Personally I think the iPhones implementation is superior than in OS X or Windows because you can edit your selection and it predicts that you may want an entire block of text fairly accurately. I predict they'll add it to OS X. Once you use it it makes you say, "why didn't they think of that earlier?"

    I liked this bit too, just to try it out I was a site with a few paragraphs and did like u say but instead of wanting the full paragraph I only wanted 3/4s of the paragraph so that made it easier to highlight what I needed too. `

    Thanks BoyBach

    To bad it uses Mail to store the notes because I don't like using Mail I rather Apple just let me access my notes from within iTunes.

    I use it for my WPA keys. I use the max possible characters for the key and really hated doing it the first time. Now I just copied and pasted and I was ready to go.
