Do You Really Need Copy/Paste on Windows Phones?
Reading Brandon’s post earlier about What’s Still Missing from Windows Phone 7 I started thinking about Copy/Paste functionality as soon as I’ve reached the second line of things (allegedly) missing from the upcoming OS, according to what we’ve seen and read so far.
Putting my other self aside (the one that is constantly installing, tweaking, testing, etc. to bring you content), I figured that I, in my every day’s life, don’t really use Copy/Paste on my Windows Phone, except a few occasions when I copy or move files I’ve received via Bluetooth on my Device (I’m too lazy to configure the receive location) to the SD Card and when I Copy an executable in order to Paste its shortcut somewhere. This happens once a month, maybe twice. If there wasn’t a File Explorer on my Device, I must admit I’d never use it. And Windows Phone 7 doesn’t seem to have a File Explorer.
So, with all the controversy around Copy/Paste on Windows Phone 7, let’s make a short exercise: look at your every day’s usage of your Device and tell us how often do you really use Copy/Paste functionality on your Windows Phones and what do you Copy/Paste? Looking forward to reading your comments!
