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.

Extremely nice app!!

I purchased the “plus” version and it has great promise! I have used “Cheatsheet” for quite some time to keep notes and updates on the cattle on my ranch. I mainly use the watch functionality, as I can lookup all my different pastures and talk to the watch to append a pasture with newborn calves and etc.
SnipNotes will do all of these same things, however, Cheatsheet looks somewhat more “polished ” showing more lines and etc. on the watch complication. In other ways SnipNotes is more advanced. I will continue to use both and will be watching for updates. I will say, SnipNotes syncs fantastic to my phone! Thanks for a great app and keep up the good work! I will spread the word!

Syncs well between devices

I normally use Notability to create reviews for books I read. Thus, I need to include the picture and blurb to help me remember or post on Reddit, plus a section below for my thoughts or cliff-notes.

Compared to Notability, copying pictures has been problematic, but the developer made changes to see if they would be fixed. I really appreciate his responsiveness and continued commitment to the app.

I have not tested making reminders or home screen widgets, since I have been primarily engaged with formatting. As far as that goes, this is not Word, which you can also download if you have a Microsoft account. Since I use that at work, I really want to avoid a conflict. I like the look and feel by default without having to increase the font or change it every time. In Notability on my iMac or iPhone, the font can become unbearably tiny, but Snips seems to be easier to read without constantly reformatting and resizing.

The reason I don’t use Apple Notes is because every time Apple makes changes to their app, I either lose notes or functionality. This time the options to add photos were moved to the Free draw app on my Mac, making me somewhat frustrated.

So for an easy to read, simple app that syncs between iOS functions, SnipNotes is pretty cool.
