MagicPad — free app for rich-text editing and copy/paste

MagicPad is a commercial app that is being given away for free for the holidays. It offers rich-text editing — and copy/paste. But note that the copy//paste function only works within a note or from one note to another. You can't copy/paste between applications. The rich-text editing lets you adjust font style, size, color, and effects. You can e-mail notes to others.
