This is just another example of a company taking a great app "LitteSnapper" and turning it into a worthless overprices turd.

What was great about LittleSnapper was the drawing tools (rectangles, ovals, arrows). These have been removed and replaced with this crappy "smart drawing" tool feature.

What an idiot web developer. They should should have spent more time coding and less time producing their ridiculous hipster promo video.

No thanks!

Contrary to some other reviewers, I found this utility useful and worth the price.

I got the App Store version that provides iCloud support.

Ember makes it very easy for me to capture and catalog web pages and images as well as finding them at a later time. I like the browser extensions that make collection easy and also recording the original page URL which enables returning easier.

Ember is much more than a screen capture utility.

Ember is inflexible.

It requires OSX 10.9 (Why?) so I can't use it on my other Systems, and I can't see what it offers that Voila doesn't do for half the price.

I really don't get this constant requirement to use Apple's latest OSX when there seems to be nothing requiring it.

Whenever they port these apps to Windows (even Apple) they always support several older versions of that OS, so what is so essential with Mavericks? Which can be a pain otherwise.

There is no need to support older versions. Mavericks has been out long enough for it to be stable. Many developers are doing this.

Yes there is.

We have 3 Macs in the House that won't run Mountain Lion let alone Mavericks.

Even on the Macs that will run Mavericks, only 2, I prefer SL and only switch to Mavericks to test things like Pages 5 (which also sucks btw).

It's free to update to Mavericks, so many developers figure if people want to use their app, they can update their OS X version.

The strategy leaves out those who cannot update to Mavericks due to a lack of support for some other critical app they use, but it's an understandable choice by the developer. They can put the time that would have gone to supporting older OS X versions into new features and bug fixes.

That said, Little Snapper, or Ember, or whatever new name they opt for, is not worth $50, regardless of which OS X versions it supports.

It is NOT because of some "critical" app.

Apple simply will not install Mavericks on most of our Macs. The price has nothing to do with it.

By contrast I can install Windows 8 and a lot of Apple's Windows version software on a quite ancient PC that is still running in our office.

@Pik80 Some of us are professionals that are using apps other than iPhoto and Apple mail. Many of these pro apps use plugins that are not yet supported by Mavericks.

They still haven't updated their plugins for Mavericks? It's been out for nine months! I am a pro and all of my plugins work fine.

I like many of you have used Little Snapper in the past. It is unfortunate that it is no longer available. Since Ember has taken its place, I also found some of the changes a little hard to get used to. First, I agree the price is a little on the high side for a screen capture application, although I decided to give it a try and purchased it. Second, I wish the developer would consider adding the original editing tools found in Little Snapper such as the arrows, lines and outlined comment fields. They were very useful. Finally, on the positive side, the application works well, it is easy to use, does what it says, and it also does a great job organizing my snapshots.

Ember is NOT worth the money. Unfortunately you installed it but I hope you get some usefulness out of it. It is not worth $49.99. The developers are capitalizing on Little Snapper's usefulness.

No, just users that knew how great LittleSnitch was compared to this steaming turd. I can only assume that the original author left the company and was replaced by that hack that wrote this piece of crap.

I Spoke too soon! Little Snapper is worthless now. I thought it was working because I saw the interface but it does not work anymore. The greedy developer wants his due. I won't give to him.

I really wanted to like this app. It was important that access to files on Ember was available on my iOs devices. They began to incorporate iCloud for this to happen. This is where trouble occurred for me. Ember worked fine on my desktop but on all my iOs devices the library could not or would not keep up to date. Files were not accessible across the platforms. I was in touch with support and they responded quickly and attempted to help unfortunately they could not solved the problem. I gave up.... and found other apps or methods to replace Ember. Also the capture function stopped working many weeks ago. I just don't think apps should need so much problem solving to work. I hope others have better luck...

Greedy, the exact word for Realmac Software.

On OS X Rapidweaver probably is the only app still in their portfolio with a track record. All others (like Courier, Littlesnapper, Sociale where either sold or discontinued. (Analog is for sale).

On iOS they had trouble when releasing a second version for Clear and now they notified us that Analog is for Sale.

Dan Counsell, their CEO and writer of many blog posts on how everybody should behave to make the MAS and App Store eco system sustainable is only part of it.

Their desire to monetize what they've made, rather than make new stuff, is showing in the RapidWeaver space. They have lots of videos on-line that you have to buy access to through a subscription. These videos are targeted toward non-technical users who are struggling to use RapidWeaver or to implement advanced features.

A colleague was considering using the tool after I helped her set up her site but found the costs and the large learning curve to be to much. I've long since moved to WordPress and Drupal to build sites. The niche that RapidWeaver filled -- Pagemill and other sub $100 web design packages -- has a couple entries now.

I suppose it's the end of a business cycle for them. Once RapidWeaver goes on the market, they're toast. Good riddance.
