Snip suggest

Whenever you make a snip, Snip!t looks at the contents and tries to work out what kind of thing it is. If Snip!t recognises your snip, it makes suggestions of what actions you might want to do with it.

1 while browsing a web page you select and snip a postcode

2 the Snip!t window appears and below the snip are a number of 'Actions' that you might want to do with a postcode - look up local news, get a map of the area, etc.
NOTE: these actions are often links to third party web pages, we try to choose useful and accurate sources, but cannot guarantee quality or correctness.

3 the actions are also available from the View Snip page (from mySnip!t). For example, this is a snip of a date:

snipped date

4 currently Snip!t recognises UK post codes, dates, people's names, ISBN numbers, IP addresses, email addresses, domain names, simple mathematical expressions, ... the list keeps growing smartie
