Nifty Notes is Now Available in Snap Format in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

With the introduction of the Snap packaging in Canonical’s launch of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Xenial Xerus, news broke out that Mozilla promised to use the snap format for its next upgrade of the Firefox web browser.

Snap is Canonical’s way of making installing apps on your Ubuntu based system much easier and efficient. With snaps, users don’t need to go around the internet looking for .deb installers and the company promised to add security layers which will make it difficult for untrusted third party apps to gain access to your system without the right privileges


Nifty Notes is a free and open-source program that kicked off not long ago. The developers of the cross-platform note-taking app drew inspiration from the Mac OS X notes app. The note taking apps borrows much of its design layout from the Apple desktop operating system but offers users a clean and easy to UI.

The app offers some interesting features like autosave, clean design, and user interface, fast search and support for keyboard shortcuts.

The app is now available in a snap format allowing users to install it with only a single command. To install Notes using snap, open a terminal console and use this command:

sudo snap install notes

Ubuntu operating system will download the app for you and adds it to an isolated container. To open it, search for notes in the Unity Dash.
From there, you can install and run the app.
To remove, simply use this command:

sudo snap remove notes
