Pastebot – the superb clipboard manager app for the iPhone – has been updated, to Version 1.2. It has added the biggest item on my features wish list for it – support for syncing multiple devices with its desktop companion app.
Although Pastebot has not brought out a fully iPad compatible version yet, the iPhone version works fine – with the same size limitations as all pure iPhone apps have. It is such a hugely useful app for me though that it is one of the few that is not just still on my iPad, but still amongst my most frequently used apps on the iPad. It was a nuisance prior to this update having to continually swap back and forth between the iPad and the iPhone when syncing photos and text from them to my Mac desktop.
I’ve tested out the update tonight and it works a treat. No more need for the awkward process of switching between the two devices as sync partners each time.
You do need to update the desktop companion applet as well to make this work. I found that despite having the desktop preferences applet set to automatically check for updates, it did not prompt to grab one tonight. I just went to the Pastebot site and grabbed the download for Version 1.2 there. That site is here: http://tapbots.com/software/pastebot/#sync
I really love Pastebot – and use it as much day in, day out as any app on the iPhone and iPad. This update is very, very good to see, and will save me lots of time now that both devices are set to sync with my Mac and ‘just work’.
You can find this latest version of Pastebot in the App Store now, priced at $2.99.
