NETSNIPS SAVES YOU A LOT OF TIME - USE IT FOR EVERYTHING!
Use NetSnips for your weather forecast, stock changes, upcoming movies, sport team standings/scores, daily cartoons, social network updates - whatever you like! There are endless possible applications. NetSnips is simply the best way to stay always up-to-date!
NETSNIPS IS SIMPLE AND CUSTOMIZABLE
First navigate to any webpage. Then scroll and zoom to the page area in which you are interested most (ex. weather forecast). Define the size of your web snippet… Done! Your first web snippet is ready and from now on it shows you the actual content of the web page. In this way you can add as many web snippets as you like and arrange them on multiple pages to create your own personalized wall of information. Seeing that all your snippets are continuously updated, you will discover changes on any webpage immediately!
NETSNIPS IS SMART AND FAST
Page reloadings are annoying, hence NetSnips tries to reduce them as much as possible. Immediately after starting the app, you can see the last state of your web snippets. NetSnips updates your snippets in an intelligent way, for example it brings first your currently visible snippets up-to-date and loads remaining ones afterwards. Moreover it keeps all webpages as long as possible in memory, in order that you can seamlessly expand a webpage in full screen with a single tap on your snippet.

What's New in Version 3.3.2
- New continuous snippet update mode! If you prefer, you can select continuous updating in the settings. Previously the minimal update time interval was 1 minute.
- Fixed a bug on the Today widget that could prevent the snippet from loading on some web pages.

I know it takes time and effort to review an app, but if you value my work please consider leaving a review on the App Store. Unfortunately, the App Store resets reviews after each update. Positive reviews motivate me and really mean a lot. Thank you for your support! :)
This seems like a good app, but it's very misleading. It says it's free, but once you make two snippets you're informed it costs $4 to make any more. That should have been made clear from the start; It definitely would have been more than two stars if that were the case. Now I'm just frustrated and disappointed. You really shouldn't do that to your users. I don't even have that much on my iTunes balance...
It works as advertised. Missing features I wish to be implemented:
- zoom / scale: if a snippet can be scaled to be a smaller size, more info can be seen in a small screen.
- background refresh: obviously missing
great concept, but doesn't work..
Widget doesn't update -- ever. It just shows the old cached page from the first time you set it up.
There are very few apps that offer web widget functionality -- and like this one , most of them don't work.
