Customers Love #SnippetsLab

It is not only the best snippet manager, but also the best markdown note-taking app for programmers, in my opinion. Better than other popular editors since SnippetsLab features both syntax highlighting and LaTeX which is quite rare among other apps.

– Maciej_1, Poland

A great design and functionality. Coupled with the Alfred Workflow for it, it is an absolute joy to get snippets one creates quickly from the app. Really recommended app. 10/10

Simple and efficient. Very good quality. Offers many options. Nice interface. I like it very much and I use it every day to save my code snippets. It is worth the price. Keep the good work! Thanks.

– jugibur, Germany

SnippetsLab is perfect for my needs. I am constantly using it when developing and it has saved me a lot of time. By simply having code that I reuse frequently in the Menubar is incredibly useful. Being able to add further code snippets via the Menubar is also very convenient.

– Reviewed-It, United Kingdom

This app is amazing. I use it all the time. I can neatly store all of my snippets and use them at a moments notice!

– Sk8tyger, Canada

I seeked a program for really small pieces of code and an easy way to find them when needed. This program has served this perfectly!

– Independence month

It’s so hard to find way to store code and snippets of scripts. This makes my programming and scripting SO MUCH EASIER!
