Try applying these styles.

In your CSS file:

  overflow-scroll: true;

.scroll-content {
  -webkit-user-select: auto !important;
  -moz-user-select: auto !important;
  -ms-user-select: auto !important;
  user-select: auto !important;}

.selectable {
  -webkit-user-select: auto;

In your Controller

 stop_browser_behavior: false
self.touchStart = function(e) {
  self.startCoordinates = getPointerCoordinates(e);

  if ( ionic.tap.ignoreScrollStart(e) ) {

  if( ionic.tap.containsOrIsTextInput( ) {
    // do not start if the target is a text input
    // if there is a touchmove on this input, then we can start the scroll
    self.__hasStarted = false;

  self.__isSelectable = true;
  self.__enableScrollY = true;
  self.__hasStarted = true;
  self.doTouchStart(e.touches, e.timeStamp);
  // e.preventDefault();

Then in your HTML:

<div class='selectable'>
      This text should be selectable
