MagicPad Text Editor Brings Copy/Paste To iPhone (Sort Of)

Apple has yet to offer a viable system-wide copy/paste solution on the iPhone, but Proximi has decided to get as close as they can. Their app, MacicPad, was just made available in the Apple Store. It’s a rich text editor for the iPhone and iPod touch that has the addition of one highly requested feature: copy and paste. It doesn’t work system-wide, so you can only copy and paste notes from one point in the device to another, but it’s a start.


  • Cut, Copy and Paste
  • Choose from 6 different font styles, 5 different sizes, and 8 unique colors
  • Send your Rich Text documents by email

MagicPad is available for $3.99 in the App Store.

Of course, the developers realize that a localized copy and paste isn’t really what people are after, but since the SDK doesn’t permit them to implement it, they created a concept video of how it might work if they were able to create it.
