iPhone copy/paste between Safari and Mail with pastebud

pastebud

Starting tomorrow (12/12) we’ll be able to copy and paste text on the iPhone between Safari and Mail, or between 2 web pages. And, it doesn’t require any software to be installed, or the iPhone to be tampered with.

It works by using 2 Javascript bookmarklets provided by pastebud. There’s a video of it in action over on Gizmodo (fyi… the video won’t play for me in Safari, I had to use Firefox).

All in all it looks pretty cool. I can’t wait to try it out. It is sad though that Apple hasn’t provided this ability long ago. Who knows, maybe it will be announced at Macworld in January.

UPDATE (12/12/2008): The service went online today, and apparently there’s some concerns about security. use at your own risk.

It should be ‘javascript’ bookmarklets, not ‘java’.

Thanks Maximillian, I kind of thought that was the case. I should have ignored what the Apple Blog had to say. :)
