Fast Copy Makes Copy & Paste on iOS Faster | Cydia

Remember when iPhone users couldn’t copy and paste on their devices? Back in the iPhone OS 1.x and 2.x days, that was one of the most serious issues Apple had to face when haters attacked. Back in those same days, Cydia developers released independent implementations of copy & paste to enable users to have a better workflow.

Apple then introduced copy & paste through a popup menu in iPhone OS 3, and Ryan Petrich released its popular Action Menu hack in Cydia to make it better, with more features and more powerful. Now, with iOS 4 it’s time to make copy & paste faster.

With Fast Copy, available for free in Big Boss’ repository, the annoying delay after you press a button in the copy & paste menu will be removed. I installed the tweak and I can confirm copying and pasting items feels snappier and more responsive then ever before, and I have Action Menu + Plus pack installed. We’re talking about a very small delay here, but once you install the tweak you can spot the difference.

I don’t see the reason why you shouldn’t install this if you’re running a jailbroken device. Highly recommended.
