Need to keep a snippet of text handy? Tired of messing up your notes, trying to keep the app open and unlocked while you are trying to do something else.

Today Snippet will allow you to share text, or a selection of text, with the Today Snipper widget. Then you can see your info from the Lock Screen, even when your phone is locked. You can also put the widget on your Today View or Home Screen. The Apple Watch app also has a complication making it readily accessible.

You can tap the Today Snippet Widget to go to the app where you can launch the appropriate app using hyperlinks detected in the text. Once you have finished with the text on the Today widget, you can overwrite it, or delete it.

To go straight to the Today Snippet app Settings from the Today Snippet widget, just tap on the widget.

Features include:
- iCloud integration to share snippet across devices, just install Today Snippet on multiple devices
- Paste from the clipboard (in Settings)

Not Reading Anything ,

Close, posting to the widget could be easier

The two main drawbacks are;
1 – does not display on the Lock Screen
2 – a little cumbersome to get your note to the widget.

I use it to read my shopping list in the store. We have to wear masks, and to open a note is difficult. Once the note is posted to the widget, it takes a tap to activate the screen, followed by a swipe to see the widget, really not that hard

Works well

It works well for me to see my grocery list without unlocking my phone. Would be cool if font size were adjustable and background color could be customized or at least didn’t have to always be white.

Save your dollar 💵. Plenty of free widget apps do the same thing. I need to actually ‘stick’ it on screen just like you would a real one, right there- front and center when my phone ‘wakes up’. Windows has one that I used on a Samsung years ago and it was perfect, but I can’t find anything like that with Apple 🍎. I really don’t see how this app is useful- you can pretty much do the same thing using your built in notes app.
(My reason for a sticky note is to remind me to use ebates when I get on my phone to shop online.) I forget every single time 😩. That’s why I need a ‘note’ front and center.
