Eye dropper

Hi, I was wondering why there is no eye dropper tool on the ipad? This is something I use all the time on the desktop Illustrator and it's slowing me down a lot not having it (an eye dropper that selects lineweight and fill properties at the same time). Having to change each individual element by opening the color fill option, selecting the dropper tool which always takes a second to show a selector in the middle of the screen, and then moving the selector over the desired color is sort of frustrating when regular illustrator has a great tool already.

 

Will this be added at some point?

Edit: Oh. Just saw this in there: Scissors (Edit) Tool:  COPY APPEARANCE Selection Tool: Select other object, PASTE APPEARANCE, paste. Workaround - Use Selection tool, then Marquee select the separate pieces artwork that need the same appearance, then change them all at once. (save your favorites to a library preset?) Not "sample appearance" with eyedropper, but it saves having to change each element's property one by one.
