Snippefy takes the almost-useless highlights from your Kindle and syncs them to Evernote, Dropbox or anywhere that’ll accept text. It’s an iPhone-only app, but as it’s only really there for processing your snippets to use somewhere else, it’s fine for the iPad too.
The app is free, with an-app purchases to add Dropbox and Evernote support, and it’s U.S-only, so prospective European customers are out of luck.
The app looks fantastic, and I’ve downloaded it. I take and make a lot of notes and highlights on the Kindle, but actually using them later is a real pain. Who the hell wants to do that in the Kindle app, or at Amazon’s site? Amazon probably has some copyright thing going on with publishers that prevents sending snippets of text to other services, but really, notes belong in a notes app.
I haven’t yet tried the app, though. Why? It needs my Amazon login details, the same ones I use to buy everything from Amazon. I have no reason to think the developer is anything but awesome, but still, I’m not giving my house keys to a stranger.
Which is a shame, as I would really love better access to my Kindle’s notes.
Snippefy is available now in the U.S App Store.Related
