And sent to NSA :-). No really. Edit: I am aware that there are already about 20 similar suggestions, but I am trying to generalize more. Please forgive me if you consider this as spam.

  1. It should be globally possible to copy any text to the clipboard. Thus it would be trivial to utilize contact info, addresses, bitcoin addresses, anything from any source (sms, email, web, whatsapp, notes)
  2. Even better: If Sailfish somehow automatically recognized common content forms in any application, such as link, www-address, email, phone, address, btc, vcf, iCal, and what not. By long touch you would get possible actions for selected content: copy to clipboard, save, navigate, open, add calendar/contact, email, call, sms... This would be more convenient, but more importantly much safer when trying to do stuff while driving (ok I know no-one ever does that).

I guess there is something like this coming sooner or later, but I wanted to give this generic enough suggestion instead of multiple "ability to click link in sms" -types of specific suggestions. I also understand that this isn't a very trivial thing to implement so I'm not holding my breath.

any word on implementation time line for sailfish development?
