My favorite Notes app

I love SnipNotes and use it on all my devices: iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple watch. Anything I need to capture (thoughts, web pages, phone numbers, addresses, etc.) goes into the SnipNotes inbox until I have time to act on it, and it’s immediately available everywhere so it also works as a clipboard manager. Notes with an address automatically get an embedded map and clicking on a phone number brings up FaceTime. The new text formatting feature makes long notes and lists easy to read. The developer is constantly making enhancements and provides great support.

The best note taker I have used

The new version make SnipNotes the best notetaker I usse, including Bear, Notebooks, Evernote. I use it to make notes on dozens of books that are latter used for Book Reviews.
Reliable and consstantly improving

I am using Snipnotes regularly for more than a year for research and writing book reviews. It is reliable and offers one of the best platforms to keep your clipped and another type of notes among all my devises, including the Apple Watch.

There are regular updates and improvements. The iPhone/iPad Apps sync with iCloud is fast and flawless. I got immediate replies from the developer to suggestions implemented in further updates

I strongly recommend this app for anyone that needs to have a reliable and stable note taker and note organizer. The price is reasonable for what you get

If you take notes on things while at your computer, download this app.

I’ve tried nearly every notetaking app you can think of. Menubar versions, full apps, Chrome extensions, etc. SnipNotes quietly slits each of those apps’ throats, and the apps in their final moments do nothing, like lambs, silent at the slaughter. Great sync across devices, conveniently in menu bar, and the intelligent notetaking makes addresses, etc., even more intuitive to work with. Love it!
