So why mess with a tool that was already a functional one that many people use? The team that developed it used the original Snip tool, but started asking for a better way because they asked the 'what if' question. "What if snipping was a modern experience that looked and felt like something from Windows 10? What if we could narrate Snips with our voice and use digital ink on what we capture? They wanted to exceed what was already available and in the process they redefined the tool completely by making a small shift in its capabilities. I feel the most impacting quote from their story is "Sometimes the simplest things are the most powerful." Which when they asked the question and followed through with their creation, they allowed easy accessibility for everyone to connect ideas, a new way to easily communicate digitally.
