Kousek (was Snippet) is a fully re-written version of Snippet. Reworked to be even easier to use and more simplistic. Still fully keyboard navigable. It's a way for developers to quickly save and search their snippets of code to use later on future projects. Store all sorts of code and notes, and sync across multiple macs with MobileMe or Dropbox.


  • Easily create Snippets from selected text anywhere.
  • Sync Snippet with MobileMe so you always have your snippets.
  • Creating new snippets only takes seconds.
  • Search your snippets instantly with a few more...

I believe version 2 is a step back. Moving out from the menu bar to the Desktop could become an additional feature, but not the core change. You guys had the best icon in the status bar. I hope you know what you do.

You would need a brain transplant to buy this over codebox. It is good but code box is better for less.

... you would need a brain transplant to buy version 2 of an app that a) has totally changed, b) only one screenshot is shown, c) developer's site has not been updated in six months and still only describes the old version

I'm writing this two weeks after v 2 release! :-/

In my view the manger needs to be more straight-forward and Mac-like... with a hierarchical view and so on.. as is SnippetS.. SnippetS was put out after Snippet and could be said to be a rip-off in a sense.. but it so much better... Care to catch up ?

Handy access to snippets no matter what program you're using, and the support from the developer is top notch. Stays out of the way and lets you get your work done while it also provides quick access to stored code. I highly recommend it!

I absolutely love this utility. It is elegantly designed and is one of the handiest code/text clip utilities I have seen. I had one small issue with it and support was very responsive.

What's with the shortcut for "Create snippet from selection"? First it wasn't possible to change that. And if you do it - now that it's possible - it doesn't work.

Why does it open a Finder window when clicking its statusbar icon two times? Is there any way to prevent this from happening?

I should point out that this only seem to happen when Finder is the active application.

It's fixed in this version. In the previous versions Snippet was returning focus to the previous application by activating it - just as you would by clicking on its icon in the Dock, which - like Snippet did - opens a new document window. We've considered this a feature as when you're working with code your active application is often the development tool - if no window is open it makes sense for one to be created. But it's 'fixed' now.
