Snip improves productivity of Microsoft Office
Snipping is the most often task performed by the millions of Office users. Users will paste the snipped screenshots into emails, presentations, documents and explain the concept of that snipped screenshot with text. Assume that if you could explain the content of the screenshot with your own voice and save it as the part of the snip or even you can explain the concept by writing on the white board. Yes, you can make all these things with Snip, while keeping the basic snipping task as simple as always.
Snip comes with the tagline, “Why just show, when you can show and tell?”. It is a bit tricky concept for the users to wrap their heads because it Snip brings in a completely new way of doing the familiar task and the result is much more powerful and easy to share.
Anoop Gupta, leader of Snip team has explained that,
Sometimes the simplest things are more powerful. Snip is transforming the way people think about communicating their ideas and providing the feedback on other ideas.
Arvind Bala, Partner engineering manager for Snip has added that,
The team that built Snip is also the team responsible for Office Mix. We’ve learned that Office Mix users who leverage the ability to annotate content with voice and inking love it and use it all the time to communicate messages and ideas. So we developed Snip as a lightweight way of making use of these capabilities within a process that is performed daily by some users. Our job is to present snipping in a way that’s easy to use and compelling. Over time, people’s behavior will change”.
Jim Federico, Snip’s principal product manager has said that,
Much of the inspiration for Snip came from our work with educators and students. Snip is already being used by educators to deliver personalized feedback to students, and students are using Snip to share their creativity with teachers and their classmates. Since releasing this tool a short time ago, we’ve been impressed with the amount of usage by Windows users. We’ve also been humbled by the amount of feedback we’ve received from people who are helping to shape our vision for this tool”.
