Ionic + Paste Image in Safari Not Working

I’ve developed an open source project that allows you to easily handle pasted images in all major browsers: Unfortunately, when I use this project in a very simple Ionic app, it does not appear to work in Safari (it works in Chrome and Firefox just fine).

A live demo of this simple Ionic app is at

I’m pretty sure the problem is at the Ionic layer as I have created a raw Angular app and paste-image appears to work just fine. Does Ionic hijack the “click” or “paste” events in Safari? Any ideas for a workaround?
