The problem with copy/paste is you only have access to the last thing you cut or copied. Also, you can only access the clippings on the iDevice itself. Pastebot solves this problem by allowing endless access to cuts and copies. Once you copy or cut something, that latest clipping will be available on your Mac and/or iPhone to paste immediately. Your old data will also be saved in the app itself. Pastebot is a powerful clipboard manager that stores text and images copied from your iPhone/iPod touch. You can organize, apply filters, and copy clippings to be pasted or sent to other apps. Version 1.4 adds some great features, including long awaited multitasking support. The one snag here is that iOS limits apps to 10 minutes of run time in the background. Originally the developers tried to use a silent audio track to make the app always run in the background, but this was rejected by Apple. The app works great, but is not quite as useful as it could be. To turn on this feature simply enter the in-app settings and navigate to “Background” and enable “Run in Background.” Pastebot is available on the App Store now, for $3.99.
