NetSnips is developed by Johannes Erschbamer, an iOS developer, who is located in South Tyrol (Italy). Johannes has a MSc degree in Computer Science from the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano and works as iOS developer since 2010. The original idea of NetSnips was born during studies. Johannes found it time-consuming and annoying to constantly check various web pages of different professors for exam results and new material. NetSnips helped him to perform this task automatically.
