Pastebot — Command Copy & Paste
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Pastebot is a powerful new clipboard manager that stores text and images copied from your iPhone/iPod Touch. Copy something you want to save, run Pastebot and it automatically gets imported for you to access later.
Organize your clippings in folders and use the built-in search to find what you saved quickly. Run a “Find & Replace” filter on a block of text or convert an image into Black & White. Maybe you just need to crop and rotate an image. This is all possible with Pastebot’s powerful editing and filtering tools. Pastebot contains 14 filters with more on the way.
Send your clippings via email or save your edited images back to your photo library. Copying something back to the clipboard is as easy as tapping it. Pastebot is the ultimate content storage system and hub. Don’t just use Copy & Paste. Command it!

What's New in Version 1.4.2
- iOS 5 Bug Fixes
Could use some developer love
To the devs: Glad Tweetbot is a success(I love that app) but please give Pastebot some love. It needs to be brought into 2012. Cloud sync maybe? A more streamlined cleaner UI?
Glad to see this underrated app get some attention again because of Tweetbot. These developers are the kings of design. With Pastebot anything you copy on your phone or on your computer(once you set up sync) gets copied to the app. True, ample room is given for your copied item in case you need to see more than just a line or two. There's also a dropdown bar enabling you to add your copied item to a category you've created on the Dashboard, some Markdown filters,character count and options to paste your item back to your Mac/ open a URL/ email/ send as a text message. That's a lot of options!
The Dashboard has a list of your categories which keeps everything in order. Under Settings you can change the background and toggle on/off sounds and detecting links.
Sure, its easy to get overwhelmed by the design, but underneath is a very learnable useful tool.
I agree on the iPad version....Long overdue! :)
An Excellent Clipboard Manager
This was useful for me even before it gained the ability to collect data copied to the iPhone's clipboard while running in the background. Probably the only the shortcomings this app has are when running in the background it quits after 10 minutes automatically (this is under Apple's control) and there is no iPad version (under their control). I say this because I think an iPad version would be even more useful as others have said (I just use the iPhone version now). I don't like the 10 minute limitation, but truthfully it's probably saved battery more than not. I have yet to copy constantly for 10 minutes and need to restart the app. Usually by the time I get the notice to restart the app for background processing, I've moved on to something else.
No Backup, No Updates
It's a good app, but that's part of the problem.
It's very useful, but near as I can tell, if you upgrade to a new iPhone, there's no way to backup your clippings
1. No Backup
2. No sync (Dropbox or otherwise)
3. No updates
4. Developer seems to have forgotten about the app
5. No iPad
6. Can't reorganize the clippings within the folder
Basically, the reason I hate this app is because the more you use it, the more terrified you get all the good clippings you stored and organized are going to disappear if you lose your phone or it gets stolen. This would be SOOOOO easy to fix with a simple "Back Up Pastebot and send back up to your email address feature."
But the developer doesn't seem interested. It's a real pity.
If a competitor steps in, I would gladly pay $10 (or more) for an app that has the same functionality as Pastebot but with a backup feature.
