OpenClip: Universal Copy and Paste for the iPhone
One of the chief complaints among iPhone and iPod Touch owners has been the lack of a system-wide way to copy and paste content. Apple's SDK forbids application developers to create plug-ins for direct collaboration between applications, and aggressively polices how developers can make use of system resources running in the background. There is a workaround application created for this problem, MagicPad, but it has has the major limitation of only allowing copy and paste within the application itself. Now, as VentureBeat discusses, there is an open source application, OpenClip, that can enable system-wide copy and paste--if it gets community support.
