PasteAndGo2 adds a new search feature to iOS’ Haptic Touch menus

It comes up often enough where I find something of interest while reading an article or text messaging my friends and consequently find myself doing some research on Google about said item of interest. Doing this typically necessitates highlighting the link or text in question and then launching the Safari web browser to paste it into the search bar. But what if there was an easier way?

Fortunately, there is. Enter PasteAndGo2, a free jailbreak tweak release by iOS developer amodrono that adds a new option to the Home screen’s Force Touch/Haptic Touch menus to your favorite web browser applications. Examples of the tweak at work are shown in the screenshots above.

As you might’ve noticed, PasteAndGo2 supports more than just the default Safari web browser, but also third-party alternatives such as Brave and Chrome. The new menu item blends in seamlessly with all the existing options, which makes the tweak feel right at home on any iOS-centric device.

The menu item displays the most recently-copied text item in your clipboard, whether it’s a string of text or a website link, and tapping it automatically launches the web browser in question and performs a search for that item, saving a few steps in the process.

PasteAndGo2 doesn’t come with any options to configure, and it really doesn’t need any. The tweak’s narrow focus is achieved immediately after installation, and too much customization beyond that would actually start to feel bloated.

Those interested in obtaining this newfangled functionality can download PasteAndGo2 for free from the Twickd repository via their preferred package manager. The tweak supports jailbroken iOS 11, 12, and 13 devices, and its source code is available on the developer’s GitHub for those interested in learning more about what makes it tick.
