Pastebot v1.1

Pastebot v1.1 is now available in the App Store. Here’s a quick overview on what’s new:

  • New Language Translation Filter
  • Ability to select app launch location
  • Ability to create new folder during move
  • Ability to duplicate clips
  • Ability to group and ungroup clips
  • Support/About sections in preferences
  • Enable/disable text links in preferences (disabled by default)
  • Various bug fixes

I wanted to mention that there have been some reshuffling of some of the button icons and menus. We hate making changes like this, but felt it was necessary for the growth of the app.

You also need to update your version of Pastebot Sync. FYI, the new version of Pastebot Sync doesn’t work with Pastebot 1.0x and vice versa. You can grab the new version of the sync app here.

We are now hard at work on app #4 and extremely excited about it. Let us know what you think and don’t forget to leave a review in the app store!

Our Shiny New Website

If you are reading this, then you’ve stumbled upon our modest redesign. And if you’ve seen our previous Pastebot page, this might look a little familiar. Truth is, we had planned on launching our website redesign along with Pastebot, but there just wasn’t enough time in the end.

The new site is a little rough around the edges, but like our software, it will improve over time. Our goal this time around was to keep things simple. Easier for us to maintain, and easier for our customers to find what they need. We hope we’ve succeeded.

Bye Bye

We’ve had numerous complaints about how confusing getting support through was. Well we are ditching it and trying a new support approach. Our support section is modeled closely after the support section within our apps (at least after the updates). The most common questions we get are clearly listed with answers and then the option to get more help or send us a suggestion is at the bottom. These forms send emails directly to us, only organized and filtered so we can manage them better. We’ll see how this works out over the next few months. We’ll continue to answer support questions on, but we won’t send our customers there anymore.

Our Mailing List

If you scroll to the bottom of our website, you’ll notice an input box to subscribe to our mailing list. All this does is add your email address to a secure database so we can send you an email when we have big news to share. You won’t receive weekly or monthly emails. In fact, you may only receive 1-2 emails a year. Add your email address to be notified when we have big news to share. We will NEVER share or sell your email address with anyone.

If you do want more frequent updates (like when we post on our blog), you can subscribe to this site’s RSS feed, follow us on Twitter, or become a fan of Tapbots on Facebook.

That’s about all the info we have for you. And let us know what you think (the good and the bad) about the new site in the comments!

Weightbot v1.5

Ahhh, Weightbot. The one that started it all for us. We’ve learned so much since building this app and wouldn’t dare leave it behind. In a few days (fingers crossed), version 1.5 should be available for all to download, and here’s what’s new.
