I was half asleep, but I had to wake up for this one. At long last, a REAL implementation of copy/paste on the iPhone. It works in every text field. It’s stupid that I’m actually saying this, you’d think copy and paste was a brand new invention, but I’m actually dumbfounded, wallowing in my own joy. It’s called “Clippy” (Yes, like the dreaded MS Office character) and it’s brought to us by iSpazio and Ryan Petrich. It’s jailbreak only, as all good things are, but here’s the procedure: Open Cydia, install “Clippy-Beta.” It couldn’t be easier. It’s somewhat buggy – for example, in sms, you can’t actually SEE what you’re copying/pasting, and the button to return to the main view doesn’t work properly (you have to aim for the bottom left, or the button press does’t work). And it gums up your number keypad. But for copy/paste, I’d do all sorts of things far less desirable than those.
This just changed the “Reasons to jailbreak your iPhone” column into “Reasons you’re dumb as bricks if you don’t jailbreak your iPhone.”
The magic lies here (coral).
UPDATE 6:30am 1/20/09: Lets make a list of bugs, shall we? Add any you notice in the comments and I’ll include them. Here’s my list after the break:
According to this post (coral) from iMobileCinema, they’ve released a beta version of a flash plugin for MobileSafari. Unfortunately, it’s video-only – any site that uses flash to deliver video, such as youtube/vimeo/revver/blip.tv, can be supported, but it’s no use for interactive flash.
If that still makes you happy (I’m certainly not complaining), you can just add the source d.imobilecinema.com to your cydia sources and download as usual (your iPhone IS jailbroken, right?).
Happy flash-video-watching, here’s to hoping for a real version soon!
