What is iCopy?

iCopy is the first (that I know of) application for the iPhone that allows you to copy and paste between web pages.

How does it work?

Install iCopy as a bookmark. (See directions below) Browse the web as you normally would. When you are on a page that has something you want to copy click your bookmarks icon and choose Copy/Paste. From the list choose "Copy Text" or "Copy URL". If copying text, select the text you want to copy. When you come to the page you want to paste to you again click the bookmarks icon and click Copy/Paste. This time choose Paste. You'll be redirected to our site for a second then returned to where you came from. Once again, click bookmarks and click Copy/Paste. This time an alert will tell you that you're ready to paste. Click any text box on the page and your text is placed there.

Since you have to click the bookmark twice to paste it's really more of a copy/paste/paste application.


Text must be in a text box
Doesn't work with every page
When pasting it is required to reload the page and any info in text boxes is lost

You can copy and paste!

OK, as you can see, the cons outweigh the pros but this may come in handy in some situation and I'll be working with it more to try and get it to do more.


Installation involves adding a bookmark Safari on you iPhone/iPod touch and slightly editing the URL. Click here to view the full installation instructions.
