[APP] Copy/Paste Beta - Select text using OCR (12/11/2010)
I have just released an application CopyAndPaste in alpha release onto the market if anyone would like to try it out.
The application is one way of solving the issue of selecting text in android. There are a lot of bugs to be worked on, but the main problem is the inaccuracy of the OCR engine. If enough people find the app useful then I will continue to update it and possibly make it open source.
load on startup of phone
Major fixes for all phones (thanks to Napalm)
Shake to launch application option
Image preview of text to verify copy

selection to edges
easy to quit
make selection handles easier to use
force close issues
launch options (longpress search)
Not working on:
Sony Ericsson x10
Galaxy s i9000 Update coming December 13
Make it so instead of launching from the notification bar, launch from long press search.
Make it so you can select to the edges
Make it easy to completely quit
Might think of more later
Thanks for the suggestions, I appreciate the help. I have just released v1.2 which allows the selection to go to the edges and makes it easier to quit. For the next version I am going to add the launch from long press search and also I am working on making the selection handles easier.
XDA is about developing and is for developers. Any user that recognises that will gain the most benefit from this site
This is and always will be a site for developers, pure and simple. Without them we are nothing, without them there would be no reason for XDA Developers to exist; we should never ever forget that. Without them this place would not be called XDA-Developers but something else, e.g Mobile Phone User Support Services For Ungrateful Nerds.

1) completely re-designed the handles now they work in 4 way directions and you can use them without covering the center with your finger. 2) fixed some force close issues people were having.
3) option to launch it from longpress search
4) many new settings in the preference menu to choose the type of handles for selection
Please post here if it works for you. Thanks for all the suggestions.
