How apple could make copy/cut/paste easy on the iPhone.

post #1 of 3

Just curious to see who else out there has an idea how to implement copy paste and cut in the word docs and such for the iPhone.

To me it seems like it would be really easy to use multi-touch as the key trick to this.

Imagine you were writing an SMS message and wanted to change the location of some of your text. So you cut the text out by squeezing two fingers together over the chosen text from one end to the other, both fingers meeting at the center of the chosen text. As if you were "slicing" out the area you want.
To paste it all you would have to do it double tap on the area you wanted the text to be placed at.

To copy I would imagine you could do a single finger running over the area of text that you want to copy.

Any other ideas on how this could be implemented?

Perhaps a quickie word processor would be the ideal Safari-based app for 3rd parties to develop.
