Snip for Android
Snip for Android can be downloaded from the Google Play Store. The Android app can be used on mobile and tablet devices.
Taking a Snip
The first thing you will see once you’ve logged into the app is the camera screen. To Snip an equation, piece of text, or table, center the dot on the screen over the desired content and tap the capture button.
Next, crop the box around the content and tap Scan.
Your Snip result appears instantly, and automatically syncs with any other app you are logged into. This is especially convenient if you are trying to get handwritten notes into a digital document you are writing on your computer.
Using the thumbs up or down buttons at the top left of the OCR tab, you can tell us if our OCR of your handwriting was correct or not. This helps us improve our service for you!
Drawing a Snip
You can also create a Snip by drawing directly on your Android phone or tablet with a finger or stylus, just go to the camera then swipe left or tap to get to the Draw input.
Next, draw your equation, then tap Scan. In this example, we opened the Solver tab to see a graph of the equation we drew:
You can also edit a Snip that has been drawn on your device by clicking the edit button that appears near the top right corner of your result. This is convenient for situations where your drawing may not have been OCR’d correctly, or if you want to create a similar Snip and don’t want to start from scratch.
Create a Snip from your Photos
In addition to taking a picture inside of the app, you can also upload an image from your Photos. Just tap the upload button at the bottom left of the camera screen and choose the image from your library.
In this example, we viewed the Search result to see other web pages that mention this equation:
Syncing with desktop
All Snips from your Android app sync instantly with any desktop app you are logged into the same account with.
