  • Pastebot iPhone App is a Cut - and Paste - Above the Rest



    The iPhone has gained a cool new clipboard app from developer Tapbot. Taking the iPhone's copy and paste functionality to a whole new level, Pastebot bestows many of the attributes we've longed for in our beloved handset.

    The new app, which is available now for download, was profiled this morning on 9to5mac. Checked it out myself and definitely understand why so many iPhone users are pleased with the offering.

    Pastebot lets you copy anything you like to Pastebot's clipboard, including images, you simply need to employ iPhone OS
    3.0's native copy-and-paste tools in any other app, then run Pastebot to automatically tap it into that apps clipboard. Create new text clippings within the app, or import a photo from the camera or your photo library.
    Pastebot really helps the iPhone tap into an assortment of commonplace utilities that are taken for granted on most computers but sorely lagging on virtually all smartphones. As easy and efficient to use as any app of its caliber can be, Pastbot works as one might expect. After saving your designed image, text, etc. to the clipboard, you can do almost anything imaginable with it.

    Once you have assets inside your clipboard you can engage in sundry editing operations, using tools like find-and-replace, crop photos, add color filters, or wrap lines in HTML tags. Organize your clippings in folders and use the built-in search to find what you need quickly.
    Similarly, if you obtain the Pastebot Sync companion app for your Mac, you can undertake all sorts of cool and highly practical actions. For example, one can easily export text or images to the iPhone via WiFi by just copying them. Conversely, you can also transfer clippings in Pastebot from your iPhone right over to your Mac.

    It works, it's cool, it's of the standard you would expect from a credible developer like Tapbot, and it's long, long, long overdue.

      Well it certainly didn't come with my version LOL

      That would make perfect sense... except I do not have that app installed on my phone, so I didn't proclaim anything. that being said, I would have to say that I would have a different app check marked, but again, I'm not proclaiming anything.:
      LOL right so you're going to tell me that came from the app itself, made by developers who get paid from this app. So the developers themselves are using programs to crack their own apps? LOL ok...

      Yeah, this app is pretty much the bees-knees. All 3 apps from Tapbot are amazing in their UI and presentation.

      i've changed my mind...i'll stick with "action menu" from Cydia/RockApp

      Wellll, after watching the video i'm almost tempted to get the app. The only thing is that it seems like a lot of work to use of the phone. It would be a great feature if it was built into the cut,copy, and past function. Like when you hold down or double tap to copy it would also give you an option to copy to clipboard and from the same menu give you the option to view all items from the clipboard. This would be much better rather than having to open another app to make it work. But it is a nice feature. Hopefully FW 4.0 will have some kind of feature like this built-in.
