Great Idea but Needs Work.
While this app address some of the peculiarly absent features is iOS, it’s still has some issues with different data types when using the “Share”
menu which is pretty annoying. You can send all kinds of data to AnyBuffer but sadly you can’t send these copying objects like phots, documents or simply text to many apps. If there were methods to do this so that other apps could be convinced data is of a different type (ie: a PDF file, a photo, etc... I suspect more apps would be able to paste it.
Also, the viewer is kind of clunky where clicking on an item in AnyBuffer requires lots of button presses to view the same document you were just looking at, even with the added security turned off. It’s nice to have a “scratch” place to store documents you need to for things like directions, but all of the button pressing just to view it over and over is very tedious.
Finally, there needs to be some integration with a computer app (like a MacOS app from the App Store) so you can share between mobile devices and your computer easily as it simply stores its data in iCloud anyway.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for the feedback.
Can you please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org? I’m currently in the middle of redesign both of item sharing and preview, and I would like to incorporate your feedback.
Great app, even better developer
When I experienced a very fringe-case crashing issue, I contacted the developer. They responded (on a weekend) in less than an hour to help me through the issue. Within a week, a fix was released on the App Store. That responsiveness alone warrants 5 stars as it shows that they are are receptive to user feedback and will actively develop improvements and feature enhancements.
On the usability front, this app is just the kind of shelf app that I need, granting it a permanent seat in my Slide Over apps. Clean UI, intuitive layout and navigation, and robust feature set.
A couple requests:
- Provide the option to store web archives of Safari links in tandem with the links themselves. This would elevate the app into bookmark-management territory, so it might be a stretch, but I’m always nervous my shelved articles will disappear from the web by the time I get around to reading them.
- Open items in full-screen mode instead of the overlay card.
- Nested shelves.
DON’T UPDATE!!!!!! — when you update, it deletes every snippet you’ve saved!
EDIT: updating this app just deleted everything I had saved.
Doesn’t work very well:
Stops working from time to time.
Why the heck have a copied URL go to a webpage? That makes no sense. I only want to be able to grab the URL from AnyBuffer and paste it into my text box or address bar — I don’t want to view the webpage from the app!
It doesn’t add everything that I copy. Sometimes I select and copy only a few words, but those do not get added to the app. It will only add very long sections of text that I’ve copied.
It doesn’t retain any formatting of the original text. Bold, italics, etc. are lost and so are clickable URLs. So dumb.
More bugs: If you create a new shelf, it duplicates the last thing you copied. One time, I made a shelf and got the duplicate; the second time I went to make a shelf, but clicked Cancel and it duplicated the last thing I copied as well anyway.
What’s the point of this app?
Developer Response ,

Thank you, Kate.
