Introducing the New Snip.it

We’re inspired every day by the amazing content our users unearth and snip. From Art and Culture to Aviation to Entrepreneurship, Snip.it has become a go-to place to collect articles and videos, share interests and express your opinions. 

Over the last few months, we’ve had tremendous feedback from our community of Snippers. We’ve been listening. And today, we’re excited to introduce the all new Snip.it!  We’ve rebuilt things from the ground up to make it even easier to collect the best of the web — whether articles, images or videos. This new version of Snip.it has enhanced features around design, analytics, and mobility to create an even better platform for self-expression.   

Here’s what’s new:

1) BETTER DESIGN FOR BETTER DISCOVERY

Topics. Want to see what people are snipping about in Nutrition & Fitness or Education? Or San Francisco and New York? Now you can browse the site by topics, and subscribe to collections in any given category. Best of all, we’ll make recommendations for who and what to follow based on your interests, making discovery even more seamless.

Customize Your Collections. Your Snip.it collections are a place for you to showcase your interests and express yourself. Now you can customize your collections by changing the background color and the collection cover photo as often as you’d like. 

Souped Up Videos. Snip.it is about more than just articles, and we love all of the videos people are collecting (as well as some pretty outstanding music collections). Why not make those videos easier to watch? Press play on any video now, and it’ll pop out in a larger window for a seamless viewing experience.

Oh, and it’s crazy fast. We’ve rebuilt the site on a single-load page platform and employed some engineering wizardry to create lightening-fast load times. The result is a “flash-like” experience. Faster speed makes discovery and expression even more convenient. 

2) STATS!

One thing we considered from the very beginning is making it easy to share snips on Twitter and Facebook as you add them. Now, you can see what kind of clicks they’re getting. Click on the new stats feature to find a whole host of insights on which snips are the most popular, and where your traffic is coming from. Click on other people’s stats to find their most popular snips and collections. 


3) SNIP.IT ON YOUR PHONE

We know lots of users like to use Snip.it on-the-go. Now you can keep up with what’s happening on Snip.it on mobile. Just head to snip.it on your phone’s browser to find all your subscriptions.  You can also snip on the mobile web by email or by adding snip.it/ ahead of the web address. Learn more

We hope you like the new Snip.it! We can’t wait to see what you collect.

The Snip.it Team
