Pastebot [$1.99 - iTunes link], the delicious-looking new clipboard manager from Tapbots brings their flare for fantastic, and fantastically original user interface to iPhone and iPod touch cut, copy, and paste. (And, yes, insert -- it took Apple 2 years and a 3.0 to give iPhone users the much-requested clipboard function to begin with -- sarcasm here).

The usage case is simple and elegant -- anything you've copied or cut to the iPhone clipboard is automatically added to Pastebot when you launch the app. Up to 99 such clippings can be stored at any one time, and inside Pastebot you can title them, organize them into folders (for example, keep email boilerplate handy), copy them back to the clipboard, share them (including via embedded email, which makes that boilerplate incredibly functional), search them (on Google), and even run some automated actions on them like changing case, decoding and encoding HTML, find and replace, quote, etc. Images can also be brightened, converted to B&W, inverted, etc. And Mac users can get the free desktop companion for sync'y goodness as well.

TiPb was able to try it out for a few days already, and I liked it enough to run out and buy it on launch (disclosure -- I'm an easy mark for great design and functionality).

Like Weightbot and Convertbot before it, Pastebot is a powerhouse in a delightful robot candy shell. By the same token, some may argue Tapbots trades speed-of-use for joy-to-use and that's certainly valid. If you didn't appreciate the robotic gimmick of their previous fare, you likely won't enjoy it here either. However, if you're serious about your clipboard and love you some innovative interface, check out Pastebot and let us know what you think.

Gallery after the break!
