Copy and Paste
Arguably the biggest feature lacking in the original feature set of the iPhone is the ability to copy and paste. Apple has finally made the feature available, and it has been executed well. Hold down on the desired text, and click "Select" for the single word or "Select All" for the entire paragraph. The highlighted box can be altered, and you can then choose to Copy, Cut or Paste. Once the text has been copied to the clipboard, it can be pasted across applications; you can paste a Web address from Safari into an e-mail, or type up a blog entry in Notes and paste it into the third-party WordPress app for uploading, for example.
