The New SnapType! [New Download Required]

SnapType is moving to a new home on the App Store! Read below for everything you need to know.

What do I need to do?

Download the “new” SnapType by using this link.

Why is this happening?

It’s odd and a little annoying, right? Sorry about that. We needed transfer SnapType over from our developer’s Apple account to our Apple account. Unfortunately, since SnapType gives the option of using iCloud to backup worksheets, Apple doesn’t allow the simple transfer of the app. Therefore, we had to create a “new” SnapType that is nearly identical to the “old” SnapType. Is that as clear as mud?

What happens if I don’t download the “new” SnapType?

You’ll be able to use the “old” SnapType but won’t have access to any of the updates and awesome new features we’re working on.

Will all of my saved worksheets transfer over too?

This is the real bummer… Short answer, no. If you have worksheets that you want to transfer over, you’ll need to export them and re-import them. This can be done with services like email, iMessage, Google Drive, or Dropbox.

I already paid for SnapType Pro, will I have to pay again?

This is our biggest worry for you in this entire endeavor. Unfortunately, Apple won’t make it easy for you here. However, to make it as seamless as possible, we’ve made SnapType Pro free for a limited time during the transition period. Go and download it now. Here’s the link.

[Update: The free transition period was open for 6 months but is now closed.] 

But I still have questions…

No problem. Contact us through the app (side bar menu) or shoot us an email through the website [Here’s the link]  and we’ll get back to you as quickly as possible!
