Happy new year to all of you! Almost half of our planet is already in the future, other is waiting, we have 23:00 here in Moscow and party is getting started. Thank you for all your warm words about my New Year Countdown Series, it’s really a great pleasure to see you all here reading and especially discussing my posts. I wish that we’ll all have some great stuff from Nokia guys that will change the game dramatically and break the barrier of “geek toys” into something massive and epic! Happy New Year!
And as a present I give you, as promised, my favourite UI concept, one of my best of all ideas. Today we will reinvent copy/paste system!
So. One day I ws sitting with my n800 and thinking bout what can I improve in it. What can I change to make it radically beter for every user, no matter if it’s businessman, media maniac or web-surfer. And suddenly I’ve noiced that I’ve stucked with copypasting something from the microb. And I reallized that copy/past system in Maemo sucks. More than that, it sucks on every handheld platform, cause it’s practically the same everywhere. So I decided to rebuild it from scratch, from basics, oriented to rapid using in uncomfortable situations with various types of data. So now you can look at it with your own eyes)
I’ve added special icon in the tray, right next to the clock. It’s white when nothing is copied and yellow when something is in exchange buffer. So to copy something just click the icon, select the text, link or image you want to copy and simply drag’em to the icon. To cut – tap and hold on the icon to see “cut” option. So, now we have something copied, how to past it? Double click on the icon to open buffer menu where all you copied stuff is stored. Select item by taping it and tap the place in the application, where you want to paste it. If you want to check full version of your copied stuff – tap’n’hold it to view it.
This system will definitely improve the speed and comfort of this ordinary action, and the best thing that this idea is really unique.
Happy New Year again my dear readers and have fun these days! Hooray!
