Beginning today, Snippet is in open beta. That means you can gain access to the Snippet Writer Dashboard immediately and begin working on your first Snippet story.
Remember the excitement you felt as a kid when you found the super secret prize at the bottom of the cereal box? That’s how we feel today. How come? Because today, we’re opening the gates on Snippet to one and all.
Cue the trumpets!
We’ve been in a closed beta up until now—releasing invites in small batches to the writers who had signed up to get one. Our closed beta was a wonderful experience. We learned so much from the writers who were first in the door and the readers who first took the plunge. There’s no way the Writer Dashboard or Reading App would be as elegant and unobtrusive as they are today without their feedback.
You may not think it, but reimagining the reading and writing experience is one helluva endeavor—tough as heck but fun as all get out. Our team has obsessed over the little details to ensure that our writing, publishing, and reading experiences are smooth, easy, and immersive. And now, we’re opening the flood gates.
Beginning today, Snippet is in open beta. That means you can gain access to the Snippet Writer Dashboard immediately and begin working on your first Snippet story. No more waiting for an invite from us. Just register and go! And as always, it’s free to create and publish your Snippet stories.
For those of you learning about Snippet for the first time, allow me digress for a wee moment.
We are a technology startup company obsessed with one thing: reimagining the way we read and write stories to promote greater concentration and heightened learning. We live in an age of endless distraction and overwhelming information. Current generation technologies have, in part, gotten us into this pickle. Next generation technologies must do better. Ours will, and already is.
For writers, Snippet means no more waiting to get published or wondering what the best way is to capture and share stories, ideas and experiences. Through Snippet’s Writer Dashboard, writers have an immediate and easy way to publish and monetize their work in a state-of-the-art format. They can also connect with readers like never before through social connections right within the pages.
For readers, Snippet means short, engaging, and beautiful reading. A Snippet’s length and multimedia content grabs and holds the reader’s attention to the end. Snippet is the only app that allows readers to connect with authors in new, exciting ways through direct social connections inside the pages. Readers download the Snippet App in the app store in iTunes, find the title of the Snippet they want to read, and click to purchase it.
This is a happy day for all of us—those of us on the team and all those in our community of writers and readers. We’re just getting started and have big plans for the future. We hope you’ll join us as a writer and/or as a reader as we push forward into the future of storytelling.
Onward and upward.
