CopierciN - copy/paste for iPhone

CopierciN is a cool app that implements some copy / paste functionality. It’s in the beta stages but has potential. It lets you import and export between apps like notes, sms, email. Avaliable via Cydia Installer for 2.x firmares.

CopieriN is a basic text editor which, hopefully, bring some kind of copy/paste mechanism to iPhone (to jailbroken ones only, unfortunately). It does not add copy/paste functionality directly to other applications but it provides a mechanism to import text from and export text to SMS, Notes, Mail applications (more to come in the future) and files in the filesystem.

Usage: It basically has two parts: Text Editor and Importer/Exporter. Within the text editor, you can select a piece of text using your finger, cut or copy it, and paste it to a selected location.

To select a text, press a finger to the place where you want to begin selecting and wait until magnifier appears, move your finger and release when done.

Once a piece is selected, you can copy or cut it by using the buttons above. The button on the left (named Clear) clears the entire content of the text editor (you can use it to crop a piece of text: copy the text, clear the page and paste the text back).

The button named “Menu” opens the import/export menu.

Short messages: CopierciN is terminated and SMS application is opened with the latest content of CopierciN is ready-to-be sent. You can chose a receiver within the SMS application. Be aware that CopierciN overwrites the /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/com.apple.mobileSMS.plist file which holds some stuff like unsent messages. So, if you want to keep your unsaved messages, just have a backup of this plist file.

Notes: A new note is added to the notes database. CopierciN does not get terminated during this operation unlike the SMS case.

eMails: Just like the SMS case, CopierciN gets terminated and Mobile Mail application is launched. Again, you can chose the receivers within the Mobile Mail application

Regular Files: The contents of the file at given path is overwritten. Be aware of that and avoid overwriting system files. I would rather open a folder under /var/mobile and save my text files in there.
