Retronyms have released the AudioCopy 2.0 SDK. Apple has changed the way iOS pasteboard works, so this update is required to ensure AudioCopy/Paste continues to work in iOS 7.
“If you have already integrated AudioCopy or AudioPaste into your application, updating should be easy. Weâ€™ve tried to make this as much of a drop-in replacement as possible. Frankly though, itâ€™s been a bit overdue for an update. iOS 7 was the final straw as it fundamentally changes the way the pasteboard works. As some people have noticed, some features in AudioCopy (e.g. copy history) would no longer work in the new iOS. This update to the AudioCopy SDK ensures compatibility with the standard and is easy to drop in and replace the old version in your apps.”
“In order to keep some of the best features of AudioCopy in iOS 7, we added a free standalone app. This acts as a â€œsound pasteboardâ€ and seamlessly serves all the copied content to 3rd party apps. The AudioCopy app doesnâ€™t have to be tasked to the foreground during the process. It simply sits in the background and quietly serves the sound content to apps as they request it. If a user doesnâ€™t have the AudioCopy app installed, AudioCopy/AudioPaste still work using the general pasteboard.”
