Is SnipNotes just another clipboard manager / just another notes app?
No! Clipboard managers focus on enhancing clipboard functionality and act as a cache for copying and pasting multiple items. Notetaking apps let you save various types of information and store them for later use, but often require you to switch between different apps.
The goal of SnipNotes is to take the best out of both worlds: Quickly save information from various sources and provide intelligent ways to reuse them later from wherever you are. SnipNotes recognizes the content of your notes and provides you with quick actions, e.g. call a phone number or view an address in Maps. These actions can be accessed from anywhere without switching between apps.

How much does SnipNotes cost?

Both versions are premium apps, they don't contain any advertisements, subscriptions or in-app purchases.
Which devices are supported?
SnipNotes for iOS is available for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Apple Watch. The app requires iOS 10.0 / watchOS 4.0 or later.
SnipNotes for macOS runs on macOS El Capitan (10.11) or later.
Where does SnipNotes store my notes?
Your notes are saved locally on your device and in iCloud.
SnipNotes saves your notes locally inside a database. On macOS, you can view this file with the free tool Realm Browser and create a backup. For more information please refer to Backup and Restore Your Data.
Can I import my notes from Apple Notes automatically?
Third-party iOS apps are not allowed to access Apple Notes directly, so there is no automatic import yet, unfortunately. You can use the share sheet in Apple Notes to send individual notes to SnipNotes. On iPad, you can also quickly copy multiple notes into SnipNotes with Drag and Drop.
Can I synchronize my notes over Dropbox, OneDrive etc. ?
iCloud is the only supported platform at the moment. Synchronization with storage providers like Dropbox is on my to-do list for future updates, but not a top priority right now. That's because SnipNotes does currently only support Apple platforms, where iCloud synchronization is sufficient and most convenient for the majority of users. Also, Dropbox would require a different synchronization technology because it uses a filesystem instead of a database.
Can I encrypt my notes in SnipNotes?
You can protect your notes with a PIN code or Touch ID. This feature is currently only available on iOS but will come to macOS soon.
Encryption is handled by the system itself. On iOS, all your data is automatically encrypted when you use a password or Touch ID. On macOS, you can enable encryption in system settings. Your data in iCloud and communication to and from iCloud are also encrypted automatically.
Is SnipNotes optimized for modern devices?
Yes. SnipNotes takes advantage of the latest iOS and macOS features, like 3D Touch, Splitscreen Multitasking and keyboard shortcuts on iPad. The Touch Bar on MacBook Pro is also supported. An overview of all available features is available here.
Does SnipNotes have an URL scheme?
Yes, you can find the documentation here.
Are you going to release an app for Windows / Android / Chrome / a web version?
There are currently no plans to support these platforms as they would require a complete redevelopment.
