The cut, copy, and paste feature is long overdue. The interface is simple and easy to use and it works across all applications, including notes, e-mails, messages, and text on Web pages. To access the feature, just double-tap on the desired text. You then can move the grab points to select as much or as little text as you'd like. Choose the "cut" or "copy" option, open a new document and tap the "paste" button.
