About Snippet App

Think outside the book. With today’s tools and technology, we’re re-imagining the reading experience and here’s how:

We help readers get through the content quickly. Each chapter is 1,000 words or less making every Snippet short and sweet.

Don’t worry about missing anything. Snippets use photos, videos, audio, and more in an uncluttered way. Read it when you want and hide it when you don’t.

With our library you’ll be able to discover new writers, topics, and stories, see what your friends are reading, and get notified when your favorite writers posts a new Snippet.

Connect with writers and readers, share your thoughts on chapters, recommend Snippets you love, and share discoverables with your social networks.

We want to lower the barrier to reading. No more paying $12.99 for something you’ll only read a portion of. Snippets vary from $0.99 – $4.99. You can hug us later.

Steve Young

Founder at AppMasters
I started building apps in 2011 and my first app hit #8 under educational games. I started making a few hundred dollars a month, but had no idea what I was doing. Then in 2013 I decided to start a podcast so I could pick the brains of app creators that I admired including the co-founder of Shazam, Tapbots, Crossy Road, etc and that changed everything.

Now I run an app marketing agency where we’ve helped 28 clients get featured by Apple, 5X downloads with ASO, and get coverage on Techcrunch, Mashable, Venture Beat and other major publications. I also write about apps on The Next Web,, and on my blog
