Today I’m happy to release the first big SnipNotes update in 2019. This update has been in the works for over three months and adds a whole bunch of new features to SnipNotes. It also improves on existing features and lays the groundwork for an eventful year 2019. Let’s get started! ?
In line with the release of iOS 12, I'm happy to announce a big update for SnipNotes, which takes advantage of the operating system's new features. This update focuses on the integration of Siri Shortcut, which lets you automate frequently used actions and trigger them with your voice.
I'm happy to announce a frequently requested change to the SnipNotes pricing model: The iOS app can now be downloaded and used completely free of charge for 7 days. After this period the app becomes read-only and must be unlocked with a one-time purchase. This change doesn't have any effect on existing users and is currently limited to the iOS version of SnipNotes. If proven successful, I will also introduce a free trial for the macOS version.
Since its release in February of 2015, SnipNotes has evolved from a simple clipboard manager into a comprehensive note-taking app. The app has gained many new ways for adding and organizing notes. One part, however, has remained largely unchanged: SnipNotes was only able to store and display notes with plain text. That restriction gets finally lifted with this update.
Since its humble beginnings as a simple clipboard for text snippets, SnipNotes has evolved into a comprehensive note-taking app and is chosen by more and more users as their primary notepad. One of SnipNotes’ biggest remaining limitations is that notes can only contain plain text and no other elements. The next updates are aimed at filling this gap. Here is an overview of the current development plan. …
I'm excited to release another big SnipNotes update for iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple Watch. This update is all about making your work with SnipNotes more efficient and enjoyable. You can download these updates on their respective App Store starting today.
Let's take a closer look at what's new:
Wow, it has been three years now since the first release of SnipNotes on the App Store. Most apps don’t survive that long, so I’m incredibly happy that SnipNotes is still around and getting better every year. Last year saw the release of SnipNotes for macOS. I learned a lot since then. Developing for and maintaining multiple platforms is a much bigger challenge than working on an iOS app alone. But I’m committed to moving the product forward on all platforms and plan to introduce some major and long requested features this year. Thank you for sticking with SnipNotes! A big new update will be available shortly.
I'm happy to report that two new updates have just been released on the App Store.
SnipNotes 1.1 for macOS is the first major update since the initial release in late June. This new version adds a few features that didn't make it into the initial release like printing, the ability to export multiple notes and support for the SnipNotes URL scheme.
SnipNotes 2.5 for iOS contains many internal improvements like automatic saving and adds several user requested features. You can now protect individual categories with a passcode or Touch ID, control which view is shown on startup and export notes as text files to various cloud services and other apps.
You can learn more about both updates in this blog post.
A major milestone has been achieved with the release of SnipNotes for macOS. Since then I’ve been working to enhance many aspects of the app and make stability improvements. Today I want to share my progress so far and what you can expect in the next updates for both iOS and macOS.
You can try out these features today by signing up for the beta test.
Today marks the final release of SnipNotes for macOS! Thanks to all the beta tester, who provided invaluable feedback over the course of the last several months and made this release possible in the first place. SnipNotes for macOS brings many of the features you know and value from your iOS devices to the Mac. While the look and feel of the new app is very familiar, it is packed with a lot of features unique to the Mac. For example, you can quickly create new notes right from the menu bar and with keyboard shortcuts. The app offers drag-and-drop support, multiple note selection, automatic saving and more.
SnipNotes for iOS has also received an update today. Here is what's new:
- SnipNotes does now detect dates and times and lets you create calendar events right within the app
- The app can now also recognize flight numbers, which you can look up to get more information on the flight
- The share sheet now lets you select a category for the new note
- In the main app, you can now also tap on a note’s icon to trigger its primary action (e.g. call a phone number)
- You can configure the Apple Watch complication to dictate a new note or save your current location
- Scribble on Apple Watch is now available for French, Spanish and Italian
Both apps are available with a discount for a limited time!
Here on the homepage you will find detailed information on both apps. I've created a new comprehensive overview about all the features SnipNotes has to offer on each platform. There is also a brand new help section, which will be expanded continuously and can also be accessed from within the app.
