Text editing can be so cumbersome on the iOS platform, mostly because of having to tap and hold on text to select it and then having to wait for the editing menu to appear on the screen afterwards.
Fortunately, a new free jailbreak tweak called PreditctionShortcuts adds cut, copy, and paste options right to the QuickType section of the keyboard for ease of access. Best of all, it doesn’t even impede on your ability to use the predictive typing features.
Sometimes you get important information from people in your iOS notifications that you’d like to do more than just read. For these situations, a new free jailbreak tweak called NotiCopy will come greatly in handy.
With this tweak, you can easily copy the information in any notification from your Lock screen or Notification Center to your clipboard so you can paste it later on.
Here’s a handy new under-the-radar feature in iOS 9’s Safari browser: the ability to quickly paste an item from your pasteboard, and submit a search via Safari. iOS 9 also allows you to quickly paste a URL and submit the URL.
Both of these features require that a user have text copied to the pasteboard, whether that be a full URL, or general text for performing a search. Of course, this isn’t a huge groundbreaking feature, but it can save you seconds, and over time, seconds add up.
The Mac’s copy and paste function is generally not something I think about. Sure, I use it. In fact, I use it every single day. It’s just that I never have to think about it. It’s a universal constant. No matter what machine you’re on or what you are trying to accomplish, copy/paste always works the same way. It always does the exact same thing and with the exact same limitations. Dmitry Obukhov’s Paste seeks to change that.
Sometimes, I want to quickly access a very specific or short bit of text, like a phone number from an email that I don’t want to save to my contacts, or a quote from a movie that I want to remember to share with a friend. I will usually copy text and save it in my Notes app, but there is now an easier way to store multiple copied pieces of text without having to even open an app.
Copy & Paste | Clipboard Widget is a simple app with one very useful feature. Copy any bit of text or image and it will automatically be saved in the Today section of Notification Center. You don’t even have to keep the app open in Multitasking for it to work.
