Snippet is an app for highlighting text from the internet and other internet- or desktop-based platforms you use to read on (iBooks, PDFs, Pocket, Kindle, Evernote, MS Word, Excel, it goes on and on), exports them as notes in a folder, automatically adds the origin URL or document source, thus creating a basic citation that allows you to remember where you got the note, and easily link back to the source content), and compiling notes and highlights from multiple platforms in one place, easily organizable and searchable.
It has a firefox extension and a mobile app.
I have been looking for an app like this for years, as I read everywhere - but I want my highlights and notes in one place. not limited to a single .pdf .doc or .epub etc. and not limited to a single desktop app, and not limited to desktop apps at all, but allowing the same sort of ease for marking up, highlighting, note taking and citation building for web-based content that you have in say, a PDF viewer.
my copy-paste method is a mess, takes too much time to organize and flip between windows, requires the extra step of attaching the source (which may be vague - a random pdf, or a random page), and therefore my notes are all over the place.
this is long overdue! a life saver as an academic and overall voracious but scatterbrained reader who culls from thousands of different source documents a year, and needs them all in one place, easily retrievable.
it would be easy to make into a popclip extension, as it already exists as a firefox extension.
my problem is now when i select text on the web, both the popclip and the snippet popups appear – or sometimes they compete for attention, and i have to turn one off to access the other. but i am always switching between these 2 tools while reading, and having a popclip extension for Snippet would be the seamless solution.
The existing extenstions for note taking apps don’t have all of these capabilities - they can do some, but not all. there’s not as much cross platform support, ability to highlight, and ability to access the notes all together in one location (and on mobile, desktop, and browser). Devonthink comes close.
Does anyone have a better suggestion for an app that Popclip already supports, that does these functions?
If not, or either way, I would greatly appreciate a popclip extension for Snippet.
