Hello to all those who say that the iPhone sucks!

I want to ask you this: Apple has FIRST phone in 2007-2008 (I don't know for sure) and came up with something cool: Multi-touch screen, not just touch-screen. I want you to tell me how many Nokia phones can brag with this option in the same period of time?
And keep in mind that Nokia has reached the 10,000 (or how many???) phone model .....

So please, if you don't have an iPhone, do not talk bad about it because you don't know what you're talking!!!

to the comment early, the touch HD cannot play high definition video !
high definition comes in three flavours ! 720p 1080i 1080p
the htc hd simply doesn't have the screen resolution to deal with hd video ! im sure movies look great on it ,like they also do on the iphone , but dont confuse yourself or others when banding around THAT THIS IS A HD SCREEN . ITS NOT IT HAS A SCREEN RESOLUTION OF 480 X 800

This must be one of the most embarrassing 'apps' ever released. I mean, seriously, what high-end phone over the last 2-3 years has ever NOT had a basic copy-paste function?

And now we're making a big deal about it as if Apple is doing us a favor by providing an App.

To all iphone lovers if get a chance watch a vdo on htc hd u'd repent the day when u bought ur iphone.
P.s Hd is capable of playing High definiition Vdos yes the ones u see at ur homes on lcds or plasmas. Battery is far far stronger I know it cuz I own both. Btw writing and reading on landscape keyboard is a treat, using HD to read and write at the moment

My Palm Pilot from 1996 had copy and paste!
I really don't understand why Apple has decided not to include it...
This clearly proves that Palm is still superior! :D

I forgot to mention YOU DONT lose the quick view function or whatever its called, if you swipe quickly it will work as normal, you have to leave your finger at the text a bit longer to highlight the text

Im an iphone owner and just installed this app so thankyou gsmarena, been using it for a bit now and its very good. The actual copy and paste function isnt what I was desperate for, I can now highlight text and delete it. FINALLY. There is nothing more anoying than having to sit for ages holding the delete key just to delete a couple sentences. I can highlight and delete the text now which hasn't been mentioned on any websites on this app.

And please guys grow up... This article is about an iphone APP not the iphone itself, saying the phone 'stinks' is imature and off topic, grow up and get a life. I didnt want an iphone yo begin with but im surprisingly very happy with it. The 3rd party apps for this phone is amazing, from a theme switcher, p2p client music and videos etc, gps navigation, video recorder and alot more. The games and apps on the appstore are good and I know i sound like a fanboy but im not, once winmo 7 hits or if 6.5 is any good i will be getting one, until then im very happy with this phone so please, if u dont have anything to say about this app then dont say anything. Nobody wants to hear your bias views on the iphone
