Pro-tip: copy/paste URL to the iOS simulator

·1 min

Just a quick tip if you need to copy and paste text to your iOS simulator.

For an app we are developing we send out verification links through e-mail with a hash. After finding out that cmd + C & cmd + V weren’t working if actually did type if over more then once..

For whatever reason I decided to try and drag-and-drop the text onto the Simulator, and what do you know?! It worked! For URLs that is.. Plain text doesn’t seem to be picked up unfortunately.
