Sneak Peek: Notes with Text and Images

“Sneak Peek” is a new series on this blog where I give you a quick glimpse into upcoming features and other interesting stuff in and around SnipNotes.

Work on the next major SnipNotes update is well underway. Today I want to share with you a few early screenshots of a big new feature in this update: The ability to create notes with text and multiple images. ?

You will be able to add images to your existing text notes and add text to new image notes. Images can be loaded from your local device (camera, photo library, etc.), copied from a webpage or dragged in from another app. More details on this feature will follow. ?

Try SnipNotes Before You Buy

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.

The SnipNotes Formatting Update has arrived!

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.

Better Notes

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. …

Happy Birthday, SnipNotes!

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.

SnipNotes 2.5 for iOS and SnipNotes 1.1 for macOS released

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.
