    Thanks for the heads up. Man, I don't see why Apple doesn't use copy paste like this. It's so easy to use within that app.

    I spotted this too, and I like it. It feels weird at first to double-tap and hold, we never had to use that function before, but you get used to it. The only thing I can think to explain why Apple hasn't done something like this before, is that they don't want to have toolbars on each app. Also, I think they might want something more gestural like symbol-drawing to copy or paste, and thus universal.

    apple can just have double tap and hold then drag text and release to copy. and double tap and a paste button comes out.

    i bought this for $5. This is stupid. And I barely use it, as I can't copy text to Mail or Safari..

    I think there's a button at the bottom of each note allowing you to email it out, but obviously not the kind of universal C&P that everyone wants.

    Watch their video on their website. They have interesting plans on how C&P ~could~ be implemented system-wide. I was really intrigued but the wife dragged me away from the mac for dinner (doh!)
     
  9. been using my magicpad for last week or so and never going back to mouse. I definitely prefer tap to click though set in preferences. Funny thing is on ipad I'm finding myself wanting to do gestures like on magicpad.
