One thought on “iPad App of the Week: SnipNotes”

  1. Hi,

    I’m the developer of SnipNotes. Thanks for the review!

    Just for clarification, the app logo and the first screenshot come from SnipNotes 2.0, a big update available this Thursday (May 19th). This update contains a new design and over a dozen new features, an overview is available at https://www.snipnotes.de/en/overview/

    SnipNotes 2.0 will be a free upgrade for existing users, so if you buy the in-app purchase now you will get it for free.

    I’m happy to answer any questions you might have.
