    I'm proud to finally release the macOS version of SnipNotes, my note-taking app which is already available for iOS and Apple Watch. SnipNotes focuses on two areas: It provides you with a variety of ways to quickly save information and it offers intelligent actions depending on the content of your notes.


    On the Mac, SnipNotes can create new notes right from the menu bar, from notification center, with the share menu and with customizable keyboard shortcuts (e.g. save selected text). SnipNotes categorizes notes automatically based on their content and provides an action for each type. For example, when you save an address, SnipNotes will show a little map of the location and can redirect you to Apple Maps for further details. When SnipNotes recognizes a date or time, it allows you to create a calendar event right within the app. SnipNotes recognizes many more content types like flight numbers or phone numbers and provides intelligent actions for each type.

    SnipNotes for macOS also provides a solid feature set for organizing your notes. You can create custom categories, assign note titles and use search. Multiple notes can be selected and moved (or deleted) with drag-and-drop. Your notes save automatically and synchronize with other Macs, iOS devices and Apple Watch over iCloud. SnipNotes also supports Handoff and the new Touch Bar on MacBook Pro.

    You can download SnipNotes for iOS on the App Store and SnipNotes for macOS on the Mac App Store. Both apps are available with a discount for a limited time!

    Two new updates have arrived for both macOS and iOS. These updates improve stability, fix a lot of issues and add the following new features:

    • The share sheet now works with multiple notes too. Sharing will now also generate a text file, so you can send notes as email attachments for example
    • You can print your text and image notes or save them as PDF files
    • SnipNotes for macOS now supports an URL scheme. Please take a look at for further information
    • There is new section in settings which allows you to reset the iCloud synchronization

    • Notes now save automatically as you type. The disk icon has been replaced with a checkmark, which ends the current edit and re-enables content detection. Tapping this button is optional, you can also return to the list of notes right away
    • You can now protect individual categories with a passcode. There is a new section in settings that lets you switch between the old global protection at launch and the new mode
    • There is a second new setting that lets you configure the launch view of the app. In addition to returning to the last category, you can now always begin in the inbox or open the category picker right away
    • The share dialog supports a lot of new apps, including file managers. This way you can, for example, select multiple notes and export them as text files to a cloud storage of your choice

    You can download SnipNotes for macOS on the Mac App Store and SnipNotes for iOS on the App Store.

    I'm happy to introduce the SnipNotes Productivity Update for Mac as well as iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch! This update is all about making your work with SnipNotes more efficient and enjoyable.


    Enhanced search: SnipNotes will now highlight search results both in the list of notes and inside notes. In addition, the search feature is now available on Apple Watch too.

    Drag and Drop: Text and images can now be imported and exported with Drag and Drop on Mac and iPad. Drag and Drop can also be used within SnipNotes to move notes between categories or into the trash.

    Safari Integration: You can use the share sheet in Safari to create a new note that contains a link to the current webpage. SnipNotes will now also save the website's title as well as any text you have selected beforehand.

    Siri for SnipNotes (iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch): You can now control SnipNotes with Siri on your iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch! This allows you to create new notes on the go with your voice, add text to existing notes and search for notes.

    This update also includes a number of smaller, but very useful improvements. These include:


    • You can click on images to open them in Preview
    • There are new settings available:
      • The number of notes in your inbox can be displayed on the dock icon
      • You can hide the main window on app launch. This is particularly useful in combination with the „Launch SnipNotes automatically on login“ functionality
      • Exporting notes as text files is now an option and disabled by default

    iPhone and iPad

    • You can now edit notes by tapping directly into the text. No need to press the pencil button first anymore
    • Added a new section „Troubleshooting“ to the settings menu. From here you can reset the synchronization with iCloud and Apple Watch
    Apple Watch

    • You can now configure which categories are synchronized with Apple Watch directly in the settings menu
    • The complication will now show the configured action with a little icon (dictate a new note, save location etc.)

    Download SnipNotes for macOS on the Mac App Store and for iOS on the App Store. Both apps are 30% off for a limited time!

    You can learn more about the new features in this blog post. If you have any questions or feedback, please feel free to answer to this thread.

    This sounds interesting. Is the menu bar functionality anything like Notefile from Juno? I love that app but development is very slow.

    The menu bar app is a little window, which you can use to quickly save some text.


    You can open this window from the menu bar or with a (configurable) keyboard shortcut.
