Coming Soon to Pastebot: Music in the Background

When we first decided to develop Pastebot, the biggest problem was that it could not run in the background. Working in the background is fundamental to a clipboard app. How useful could a clipboard app be if you had to launch it after each copy? We decided to move forward with it because we felt it had enough potential features to still be quite useful. Turned out we made the right choice. However, we also hoped that someday Apple would allow multi-tasking in some form so Pastebot could finally work how we truly intended it to.

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!

Pastebot Sync 1.0.2 Now Available!

Hello Everyone. We’ve just pushed out an update to Pastebot Sync that addresses some of the popular requests we’ve received since launch. This update makes moving images back and forth even easier than before! Here are the changes:

New Features

  • Ability to paste images directly to the Finder and iPhoto.
  • Ability to copy groups of images both ways.
  • File names of images copied from the Finder, iPhoto, and Safari are saved and also automatically become titles in Pastebot for better search results.
  • Titles added to images in Pastebot become the file name when pasted to the Finder

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed issue with no menubar in 10.5.
  • Fixed issue with images appearing in Pastebot as “Unknown Data” in 10.5.

There are 3 ways to get this update.

  • Wait for the auto-update to pop up.
  • Select “Check for Updates” from the Pastebot Sync menu icon. (10.5 users can’t do this because of the bug which has been fixed)
  • Download directly from our website (If you redownload, be sure to turn the Sync app OFF and back ON after the install to restart the service)
