Pastebin allows you to store text online for easy sharing but it wasn’t previously much good on mobile devices, particularly for computer programmers and web designers looking to share long strings of code. That’s now changed. This overhaul may not look substantial – the site still has a large input box, a few editing options and couple of adverts – but it now looks and works better on mobile devices.
Just as before, you can highlight text and set an expiration date for your pasted text, from 10 minutes to a month. Text is made public by default but if you become a member, you can opt for ‘private pasting’. If you’re sharing huge amounts of text, Pastebin is pretty unbeatable.
