The lack of a copy and paste function in iOS was a huge oversight that was eventually rectified by Apple. However, even once copy and paste had been added to the operating system, it was still found lacking in many ways; this is something that Pastebot — Command Copy & Paste has been designed to overcome.

Ordinarily, the clipboard is only able to hold a single item, be it text or an image. Pastebot enables you to extend this by providing you with an entirely separate clipboard store with a raft of additional options.

Frequently used text and images can be stored in the app and organised into searchable folders ready to be transferred to the built in clipboard when required. Pastebot also includes basic editing tools so that images can be rotated or cropped and you also have the option of applying a variety of filters. This helps to eliminate the need for additional apps and reduces the number of steps it takes to copy edit and paste images.

The app can be coupled with the free Pastebot Sync application for your Mac. These two pieces of software work together, making it possible to push text and images from your Mac to your iPhone or iPad via wifi. If you've ever struggled to find a way to transfer information between devices, Pastebot may just be the app you've been looking for.

Verdict

A wonderful simple and useful utility that extends the functionality of the iOS clipboard.
