$8.99 From Felix Lis­czyk, Needs mac OS 10.12 or later Ap­ple’s built-in Notes has come a long way, but one thing it can’t do is cre­ate quick notes from mac OS’s menu bar. Snip Notes does that and more, sync­ing via icloud to iPhone, iPad, and Ap­ple Watch, thereby mak­ing your notes avail­able ev­ery­where, even off­line.

Snip Notes lacks the com­pre­hen­sive an­no­ta­tion and draw­ing tools in­tro­duced with Notes in mac OS Sierra, but – more con­ve­niently – saves images and text snip­pets. New items are saved to an in­box, where con­tent can be or­ga­nized into mul­ti­ple cat­e­gories with one of 42 cus­tom icons.

The Mac app is also great for quickly sav­ing cur­rent Clip­board con­tents, thanks to a No­ti­fi­ca­tion Cen­ter wid­get that dis­plays up to 12 re­cent notes for fast ac­cess while the app is closed. If you don’t like the de­fault or­ange, nine other color themes are avail­able.

Although ini­tially de­signed for mo­bile de­vices, Snip Notes for Mac faith­fully adapts to the desk­top, with as­sign­a­ble global hotkeys for call­ing up the menu bar and sav­ing clip­board or cur­rently se­lected con­tent, which can also be done from any­where us­ing its Share sheet ex­ten­sion.
