Fast Copy for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch Makes Cut, Copy, Paste Faster and Snappier [Jailbreak App]

Hacker comex of Spirit and JailbreakMe fame has released a tweak called Fast Copy for jailbroken iOS devices that, in accordance with its name, makes cut-copy-pasting a much tighter experience. How? Read that after the jump!


Official description of the app is as follows:

The editing menu (copy, paste select all etc.) always seem to lag for a moment with the button you pressed highlighted before actually performing the action. This is actually just a delay; this tweak removes it, making copying and pasting feel much snappier.

What Fast Copy does is remove the slight lag / delay that happens after you’ve tapped on a(ny) button in the copy-paste menu. That is really all it does.


I was a little of a misbeliever until I tested it out myself. It actually makes cut, copy and pasting a faster experience. The right word for the feeling would definitely be “snappy”.
