The lack of copy and paste on the iPhone could soon be a thing of the past if a new web service called Pastebud is as good as it appears.

Although still to be launched Pastebud’s creators have put a demonstration of their service on YouTube showing how iPhone users can copy and paste text from Safari into Mail and between web pages.

Based on the YouTube demo, it works through bookmarks that allow users to go between Web pages and email.

Users are then able to highlight text and hit a button to copy, flip to the another page and hit paste.

As a web-based service users don’t have to download software onto their iPhones – meaning it bypasses Apple’s App Store altogether.

While Pastebud may be quite limited in copy and paste capabilities, it will definitely be gratefully received by iPhone users.
