Stop opening dozens of browser tabs every day. Track your favorite web pages with NetSnips!

"Track updates to your favorite websites in a whole new way with this utility app" -
"NetSnips is a clever new app that simplifies web browsing and surfer productivity" -
"Rather nifty website bookmarking service that adds 'snips' of your favorite sites" -

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!

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!

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.

Good App, Only Getting Better


Was looking for an app to monitor auctions beyond E-bay. NetSnips is a much needed tool that I have only begun to find uses for. It allows you to grab a piece (snippet) of a web page and hold it in a very basic visual layout. The beauty of it for my auction tracking is, it holds the web address and a single tap on the snippet refreshes the page revealing the current auction status. Voila, simple auction tracking. Peruse the auction site from within the snippet, back out with a tap, on to another snippet to review another item and/or auction site without logging on and without typing in repetitive search criteria. Kind of like Bookmarks or the Reading List in Safari but more visual. Think stock quotes, sports scoreboards, movie listings, flight info, package status, fantasy data, weather forecasts as other possible snippets opening refreshed. Buy and use this app, it's like a hammer; no telling what you can do with it.

Good idea & execution


This app is easy to use and does what it says. I was aggravated at first because I touched the screen (accidentally) before I saw the instructions. I tapped all over the place trying to find a tool bar. I finally wound up uninstalling and reinstalling to figure it out. I would normally rate 4⭐. However I am putting 5⭐ to compensate for the idiot who left a 1⭐ rating because there is no iPad version. I believe the reviews are supposed to be about the existing app to help others make wise choices and do not think it reasonable that a devs ratings be negatively skewed because of others ignorance. PS I would like an iPad version too!

Exactly what I needed!


I found this little gem yesterday, and after a couple of minutes using it, I HAD to buy the full version. As a shirt designer (Primitive Tool), I often have multiple designs up for voting at different sites. I keep opening tabs to monitor each one of them in my phone browser. Thanks to this app, I have them all in the same screen, updating automatically for me. I would love to see notifications in the future, maybe a way to know if anything has change on the snips if the app is closed. Keep up the excellent work!
