Selecting specific text from an incoming sms
I see someone asked this a few years ago without an answer so I'll ask again with new people and new technology.
I often get sms messages with "tokens" that I have to copy and paste into another app i.e. one word/number. But I can't find an SMS app that allows you to copy a word/number from an incoming sms. I've tried stock, Hangouts, Handcent, Chomp, GoSMS, HelloSMS, 8SMS, Textra. They all allow you to copy *all* the message or nothing. Basic functionality IMHO.
My work around is to forward the message where the stock SELECT-COPY functionality appears and I can copy the text and use it. Bit rubbish. I feel like I'm missing something. I don't think it's my keyboard since it's the app not the keyboard.
Any thoughts please?
