What can you use the app for?

What is the history and popularity of the app?

There is no information available regarding the company behind JustPaste.It or the launch date.

What are the differences to other apps?

JustPaste.It seems to be a basic sharing application. It has taken all of the various text and media sharing applications and combined them into one. It is easy to use, but has no privacy options. Notes entered may apparently be shared on the site, though this is not pointed out in the introduction to the site.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The editor is simple to use and can be used as WYSIWYG or as an html editor. Users can create custom justpaste.it page names, upload and manage photos, and import .doc, .rtf, or .odt files. To add a video, paste the video link into the editor and the link will be available in the note.

Once the note is published, users are provided with a URL, code for a forum, HTML code, and a link to edit the note as needed. All of the text and formatting will remain intact.

Math formulas may also be added, using LaTeX markup in the html section. Files may be uploaded from Microsoft Word, MS Works, or Open Office using the "Import from file" function.

Text is backed up every 3 minutes for protection and notes may be downloaded as PDFs.

The one thing that is inconvenient is that there is no link to a full blog for JustPaste.it, but Google turns up several articles that are from the site, but apparently not linked or easily found on the site. Presumably they are in the form of notes and could be found by scrolling through the latest or most popular notes, but there are no other filters. This is annoying, as users could benefit from the content provided in those posts.

There are several pages of notes published on the site, which is not really noted anywhere in the documentation. In clicking on some random notes in the latest or popular section, users may find computer code, class notes, or pornographic content. In viewing the Regulations section, there is a section on the very bottom that indicates "Rights you licence". This states that any content posted or uploaded may be used by JustPaste.it. In fact, they have "worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable license (with right to sub-licence) to use, reproduce, distribute..." and basically use your content in any way they wish, without user permission. In other words, anything a user enters on the site is up for grabs and can be used by the site anywhere without permission.

How does the registration process work?

There is no registration necessary to use JustPaste.It.

What does it cost to use the application?

No cost is associated with using the application.

Who would you recommend the application to?

There are many collaboration sites that are easy to use and do not publish user notes for all to see. This application should only be used by those who know that their notes may be published and should not include inappropriate or private content. It is just as easy to send an email with text and links to images or videos. This application, while some may find it interesting, has very little value.

The fact that the content may be shared without permission could potentially be an issue with privacy from users.
