    This will stop me sending links to myself via iMessage :D

    Well worth the £2.49 for something so seamlessly built that streamlines a task I do at least once a day.

    That icon could do with some love though...

    This has been done before by Tapbots, but they haven't updated Pastebot in forever and it certainly doesn't fit in with iOS7. Personally I loved being able to share to my phone with a keyboard command. Very useful.

    Great idea, but that's a terrible example (from the video). All you have to do is open the webpage on your Mac, then open Safari on your iPhone or iPad and scroll down to the "iCloud" section where the page will be waiting for you.

    Again, I think this is really neat and kudos on simplifying other steps, but more than anything there's no way anyone could justify spending $4 on something like this.

      I can and just did justify spending $4 on this. I constantly send pictures and links to and from my phone to my laptop, and it's been a PITA so far. This makes my life exponentially easier in that regard, so it's absolutely worth $4.

        How is it easier than simply loading the link in Safari on both devices? That's two clicks at most.

        Additionally, how else are you used to sending yourself items? There are poor ways to do it (e.g. sending material via iMessages to yourself) and then there are painless and free ways to do it (Dropbox is just drag and drop, and the safari example in my previous comments is a built in feature on iPhones/iPads).

          Although I don't experience any problems I read a lot about people struggling with iCloud syncing their stuff in general so it's mainly for them.

          To answer your questions: Usually by sending an email to my phone number (so I receive items as MMS messages) or dropping things into a temp folder on Dropbox. I don't use Safari, so I wouldn't use that functionality you described.

          This argument is sort of moot, because the "ease" of someone's workflow can be a very subjective thing. Everyone should use the workflow that they're most comfortable with, and this allows me to do just that; hence why I had no problem paying the $4 for it.

      Not to mention the cliche startup video ukelele background music.
