    You have to highlight text by dragging over it from left to right. Then you can hit the copy and paste buttons which appear when you switch from the QWERTY keyboard view to the number etc. keyboard view.

    By dragging over it with your finger from left to right...

    Type something. Drag over it. Switch to the # keyboard view. Press copy. Press paste.

    yeahs, i got it, but the description is not true, it's not system wide, you can only copy from things you can edit.

    Yea, exactly. It doesn't seem to be system wide. That, or I can't figure out how to work it completely.

    Its pretty cool though. I like that you don't have to push the delete button back for ages if you want to get rid of a lot of text. You can just highlight and delete now.

    There's an upgrade already? I'll check it out now. With the version I have, you can highlight from right to left too, my mistake.

    yeah, just open cydia, but, it seems, i can only keep it highlighted in the url, but not on google search bar, or anywhere else?

    I upgraded. It doesn't seem to work in safari very well. I can highlight in the url and the built in google search bar, but not on the google page. When I type in the search bar on the actual site, I can't highlight that text.
