What's New

Version 2.8

This update adds support for Siri Shortcuts in iOS 12:

• You can quickly open notes and categories with a custom Siri phrase
• Siri can read notes to you and show images without having to open the app
• You can save your current location and the contents of your clipboard with Siri

Siri will also suggest shortcuts for actions that you perform frequently.

The buttons for creating and working with notes have been revised:

• All options for creating new notes have been condensed into a single menu. From here you can i.a. save images, dictate notes and also create new Siri Shortcuts for categories
• The favorite button at the bottom of note has been replaced with a new shortcut menu. This menu allows you to create Siri Shortcuts for notes and generate links, which can be pasted into other apps
• The share button now gives you the choice to export your notes as formatted text, plain text or markdown
• The edit and category buttons at the top right of a note have been merged into a single button, which also allows you to disable formatting and content detection for a note. You can of course still tap into the text of a note to quickly start editing

The collection of anonymous usage statistics and crash reports can now be disabled in the privacy section of the settings menu. I've updated the privacy policy to reflect this change.

Thank you for using SnipNotes! If you like the app, please help support future updates with a rating on the App Store.

Glad I found it


I stumbled across SnipNotes in the App Store and am glad I took a chance on it. The app has worked smoothly with no crashes or bugs. My (very minor) issues with it are more because of how I would like it to work for me personally. It is fast and has not crashed on me once.
There are plenty of things to like. The cross-device syncing works flawlessly - between iOS devices, I have not tried the Mac app. There are URL scheme options available. You can change the appearance via the option to change the app’s color theme.
One of the main attractions is the feature to customize actions for each type of content that can be saved to SnipNotes. Which is almost anything.
A couple things have bugged me. Sometimes the app will incorrectly identify what type of note you have created. Just because a date is in the text doesn’t mean the note should be categorized as an appointment. Although you can manually change the note type to plain text. Also, I wish exporting notes was a little more consistent. For example, if I export a note to Evernote please match the title and body from SnipNotes to the new Evernote item. SnipNotes ignores the title and only sends the body of the text.

EDIT: Thanks for the update. I had no idea that the two Evernote actions would behave differently.

Thank you very much for your review! The export functionality will be improved in the next update so that it prepends the note's body text with its title. Evernote automatically sets the first line of an imported note as the title. You can also enable and use the "Send to Evernote" action (Settings => Configure Actions), which already sets the title field correctly.

Apparently This Takes only 5 Seconds

Seattle Rex

I like the app, but when I got a popup as I was creating a note asking me to rate the app, while telling me it only "takes 5 seconds", I was dismayed.

Why, if I am getting ready to create a new note, would rating the app be my priority? Furthermore, would not the creator of a note-taking app be acutely aware of this?

That I'm being spammed on my own device, by using an app that I payed for, is terrible. ESPECIALLY since they ignore my "no rating nag" settings. They are essentially saying "I don't care that you don't want these nags, I'm giving them to you anyway."

Well, I cannot stop you from doing that.

What I can do, however, is rate every app that does so, one star.

If everyone else were to do the same, the wishes of the CUSTOMER will once again be a higher priority than the wishes of the business, which should always be the case.

SPAM is SPAM, regardless of who does it, and as history has shown, until people make it clear that they've had enough, it will only get worse.

There, I rated. Oh, and what do you know, you were right. It did only take 5 seconds!

Nice app, though. Mind if I use it for me now, instead of as a platform to tell me how I can help you?

Developer Response

Thank you very much for your honest feedback. I’m sorry that you had a bad experience with the rating system, I never intended it to be intrusive or annoying. SnipNotes will ask you the first time for a review after a few days of use. In the dialog, you have the option to delay the prompt for a week or to silence it completely. The latter option is permanent, SnipNotes will never ask you for a review again, even after an update or a reinstallation. I will improve the timing of the dialog so that it doesn’t show up while you are working on a note.

Maybe you could give SnipNotes a second try. I would be happy to assist if you have questions or encounter any issues. Please get in touch with me at

Almost Perfect, Simple And To The Point


Does notes well. Came from Buno, looks like the devs have forgotten about their server, and this app is much better. Same core concept-simplicity and focus on minimal, high-value features. Easy to get notes in, good organization (folders metaphor) solid and UI/UX in general. Could do away with the Content Types feature as it misses the mark completely in notes with multiple type-triggers, but thankfully you can disable on a note by note basis. Too bad you can’t just switch if off. I’m not dinging a star for all this however, just nits for a very solid app. Kudos

Thanks for your review! I plan to revamp the content detection feature in an upcoming update to make it more useful and less intrusive.
