Snippets is earning rave reviews!"The canned responses included with Snippets are worth its price of $.99 alone. Snippets is a great app with a very easy-to-use interface that I plan to use again and again"-- Kevin Harter, The Unofficial…..
Rated 4/5 based on 3 customer reviews.
Much faster than Notes
If you find yourself typing the same things over and over, Snippets can really save time. Can you copy and paste from Notes? Sure, but it's not organized and it's slow, and I prefer having a special place to keep my clipboard caps that is separate from my notes (though I use Evernote but hey). I dig it!!
Keeps what I need to repeatedly enter close at hand. Easy to use and organize. My wish is that it could somehow stay "resident" in memory and replace a typed sequence with the desired text string. Eg .address would be replaced with my postal address. A tool beyond measure if that were attainable.
Great idea -- but incomplete.

I love the *idea* of this app, and I'm finding it quite useful -- but it needs polish.
(Unfortunately, the "support" link leads to a generic app page with absolutely *no* contact info for the developer. This doesn't exactly make a good impression, let alone engender trust in the developer.)
1. As I use the app more and more, I'm realizing I'd like to categorize my snippets differently -- but there's no way to rename categories! They can only be created or deleted. This is a monumental oversight.
2. As above, I'd sometimes like to be able to move a snippet from one category to another -- but again, there's no way to do so.
3. Although automatically displaying snippets in alpabetical order may seem logical, it becomes unwieldy as soon as you have more than, say, 10 snippets in a category. We need more display
options -- such as "Display Newest Snippets at Top." (And the display options should be configurable *per* category -- not globally.
4. We should also be able to freely reorder snippets -- and categories -- in any way we choose. (Think of the iPhone's "Favorites" page in the contact list. You tap Edit, then drag the items into any order you like. *That* is how Snippets should work.
5. This is of lower priority, of course, but I'd love to see a more attractive icon. I love the simplicity of the paper clip! But the (lack of) color scheme is boring. Just changing the background color to a muted blue or taupe would help bring it to life. :-)
BOTTOM LINE: While Snippets accomplishes its basic task nicely, there absolutely MUST be better snippet *management*. Otherwise, its purposes -- productivity and convenience -- are ultimately defeated. I don't need the app to do a million things; i simply want it to do this *one* thing *better*.
