I've heard many people moan and groan about copy/paste and also cut as well. I was just in the shower and I was thinking how to solve this problem. Well for those of you that hope for this feature, here is my simple solution. But before that, let me tell you about Magic Pad. Magic Pad is an app on the App Store that costs $1.99. It boasts the copy/cut/paste functions. How does it accomplish it? You double tap to select text. Remember how you can use the magnifier to move the cursor to a different spot? Same stuff, but you double tap instead and it will highlight the text, you then tap on the little gears icon and move the finger (don't lift the finger just yet) to the left icon for copy, the middle for cut and the right icon for paste. Here is how I would incorporate it universally throughout the entire device, whether it be an iPod or iPhone. 1. Double tap + drag finger across text or image (Safari, etc) to highlight text. 2. Press the volume increase button once for copy, twice for paste, and the volume decrease button once to paste. It can also be another button, such as the sleep/power button, home button, mute button (iPhones only though), etc. Heck, even combinations of buttons would work. Sorta. Since Apple added "pressing the Home button from any Home screen takes you to the first Home screen" feature in firmware version 2.2, I'm confident that my solution will take little, if any effort. They could just re-use that bit of code and modify it a little bit. If you have any other solutions or comments or suggestions, just post below. Again, I thought of this in my 5 minute shower. It's an elegant solution and builds upon what they have already done with the Home button. It's not too complex and amazingly simple. Happy Holidays everyone!
