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 3.2.1
- Added some missing localized texts in French, Russian and Chinese.
- Minor refinements in the user interface.
This was new in the last major version (3.2):
- You can now select your preferred action for single, double and long tap on a snippet!
- Your snippets can now recognize two-finger taps! You can customize it too (the default setting opens the snippet share sheet).
- A new option in the settings allows you to clear the app cache in order to free up storage space when you need it.
- New snippets are now always added on a new page. If you prefer the previous behavior (add new snippets on currently visible page) just head to the settings.
- Added the "Open in Safari" option for opening the full web page in Safari from the action sheet.
- Greatly improved the selector tool for defining new snippets. It's nicer and more functional (you can resize it on the edges).
- Optimized snippet repositioning for iPhone version in landscape on iOS 8.
Other optimizations and bug fixes include:
- Improved and fixed bugs in snippet updating logic.
- Improved image quality for Retina HD display (iPhone 6).
- Fixed a bug that led to black snippets on some web pages after updating.
- Fixed sporadically occurring graphical glitches under iOS 8 during snippet loading.
- The snippet screenshot is now correctly deleted from the file system when a snippet is deleted.
- Other minor user interface improvements.
One more thing:
If you ever wanted to buy me a coffee for all this free updates, now you can! Just go the upgrades section and find a nice cup of coffee right there. Rest assured, your coffee will keep me awake... Thank you very much!
I know it takes time and effort to review an app, but if you value my work please consider leaving a positive review on the App Store. It really means a lot. Thank you!
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!
