Snippety boosts productivity by providing instant access to your snippets. Create reusable templates from frequently used sentences, code fragments, email templates, test data, and more.

Snippety seamlessly integrates with any text field. Just press ⌘⇧Space, find your snippet, and hit ↩. You can also define keywords and insert snippets by typing, all without opening the app!

Instruct Snippety to generate templates or insert placeholders automatically. Create smart snippets with the AI Assistant, and have it fix typos, summarize text, translate, or even reply to emails. Soon, you won't be able to live without your personalized collection of smart snippets.

Snippety can also simulate keystrokes, speeding up form completion and automating repetitive tasks with app-specific shortcuts.

Advanced users can enhance snippets with scripts, automating everyday text operations for even greater efficiency.

Seamless Integration:
• Similar behavior to Spotlight. Just press ⌘⇧Space & access your snippets from any place.
• Insert snippets in any text field by just typing previously defined keywords. The snippet will be inserted without even opening the app.
• Use Quick Access Menu to access your favorite snippets even faster.
• Dedicated iOS app to access snippets from your mobile phone or tablet.

Smart Placeholders:
• Create reusable templates by replacing customizable parts with smart placeholders.
• Take advantage of 16 smart placeholders: auto-incrementing number, AI assistant, calculated date, calculated time, clipboard content, clipboard history, command-line script, file content, random value, selectable date, selectable value, multiselect, selected text, text transformation, text variable, and multiline text variable.
• Avoid repeating the same parameters, with Snippety you can insert the same value into multiple places of your template.

User-friendly:
• Snippety is always focused on its users. Many of the features that you can see in the application were suggested by users. Snippety is always open to great ideas!
• No subscriptions and hidden fees! You pay once and you get Snippety for iOS, iPad, and Mac with lifetime access and updates!
• Easy contact to provide feedback, ask questions, or share your ideas. Most emails are replied to within one day.

AI Integration:
• Enable AI features in all your applications by using AI placeholders.
• Ask Snippety to generate templates and insert placeholders using AI computing power.
• Smart AI assistant placeholder is ready to perform any task for you using the selected text or clipboard content.

Focused on Productivity:
• Live Template enables you to fill in placeholders while seeing the final result.
• Snippet Expander allows you to use your snippets while typing without opening the app.
• Inline placeholders allow you to provide text parameters to your snippets while typing.
• Explore advanced statistics to track your productivity boost.

Flexible:
• Syntax highlighting supporting 50+ formats.
• Rich Text (RTF) and Markdown support (with images).
• Simulate app-specific shortcuts or key combinations directly in snippets. Use it to auto-fill forms or to automate some repetitive tasks. Anything you can do using a keyboard can be simulated in your snippet.
• For advanced scripting use command-line placeholders to transform selected text or clipboard content using bash scripts.

Configurable:
• High configurability to satisfy your needs.
• Almost 250 built-in configurable themes to adjust the appearance to your needs.
• Minimalistic and beautiful design adjusted to light and dark mode.

Unlimited access:
• Enable iCloud synchronization to share your snippets between Mac, iPhone, and iPad.
• Use shared file synchronization to share your snippets between Macs with different Apple IDs.
• Share snippets using secure links.
• Auto Backup to keep your snippets safe.

What’s New

Version 7.5.79

• Improved database synchronization when using a shared file. Fixed issues with providers like Dropbox, OneDrive, etc.
• Improved the order of fuzzy search results: snippets that start with the provided phrase appear first, followed by snippets that contain the phrase, and lastly, other snippets matching the fuzzy search. All groups are sorted based on your settings.
• Cleaned up the menu that appears after clicking the icon in the system menu bar.
• Limited the maximum number of output tokens from the OpenAI API to prevent errors from exceeding the allowed token limit.

Change of Opinion

Initially, I was super annoyed with the app (well any app that does it) for bugging me to write a review...

I like to spend some time using an app, on my own time, to see how it fits into my workflow, before I leave a review.. Well I spent some time, so I'm updating the review..

The app has become one of the must have tools in my daily workflow. I don't really use it how most folks would, but it is still super helpful.

I use it alot for keeping templates in for when I'm entering data into company Bug Tracker (JIRA.) It helps to keep each entry tidy and following the same outline so its easy to find the information I need.

I spent a while looking for an app, that would not only do text expanding, but also let me input custom text as needed because the expanded text is not always the same. Especially when your filling out bug tickets.

I could accomplish this in Alfred as well, but I wanted an stand-alone app, to keep my work related expansions seperate, and to make it a bit easier to set new ones up, as Alfred can be a bit time consuming sometimes.

As for the developer, he actually takes suggestions on what might help inprove the overall experience with the app. Two of mine made it into this last release, and they are a big help in speeding up my workflow.

Thank you very much for updating your review and for detailed feedback :)! I'm glad you enjoy the app.

Advanced functionality, well-maintained, straightforward and easy to setup and use

Highly recommend checking out Snippety as it's become my go-to text expander. The new AI features have taken it to the next level. It's well-maintained and the owner is accessible through his website or reddit.

Recommended areas for improvement:
1. Having more functions/options for snippet organization (eg, subfolders, use-case/topic-style snippet tags, which could be auto-AI generated) with more advanced sorting/filtering options. My snippet collection is lengthy, so this would help tremendously when I'm having trouble remembering or finding a particular snippet.
2. Please more detailed documentation on Command Line Script use, more text transformation options or how to create custom parameters, and snippety-helper documentation detailing how to use and advanced capabilities.
3. Dynamic file content insertion, either by setting up some logic (eg, iterate through a directory, injecting file 1 content on 1st snippet, file 2 content on 2nd expansion of same snippet, etc). Also, allowing users to pick a specific file each time they execute a snippet with the File Content placeholder. This would help TREMENDOUSLY for LLM coding workflows and replace the endless copy/pasting.

Overall, 9/10 app with some room for UX improvements!

Stellar!

I am thrilled to have come across this great App!
Due to privacy concerns I had to stop using another app that offered similar features becuase the other developer started running things through their servers which introduced a security / privacy risk.
When I found Snippety, it was good and met the basic needs, but a little rough around the edges. I sent some initial feedback & to my great surprise and delight not only got a positive reponse to the Feedback, but the Developer integrated the feature request in a future release! He actually made several updates and now I love this App! I have shared it with my team and a number of other colleages! Keep up the great work and I hope you have a lot of success.

Developer Response ,
