I find Clarify to be a pleasant and easy to use documentation software. It's great to provide support and feedback on various topics (also good for tutorials). I just wished it worked more like a Mac app while scrolling and editing text. Whenever needed, their support is most helpful and diligent .

Folks who got version 1 from Mac Heist can use this link to get a free upgrade to version 2: http://store.bluemangolearning.com/mac-heist/register

Version 2 brings a lot of improvements and builds on most (if not all) of the missing features people complained about: http://www.clarify-it.com/what-is-new-clarify1

Thanks for the MH link. I don't use Clarify very often, but it's probably the easiest I've used for annotating screenshots.

Still no Retina support?

I just tried the 2.0 beta and it too does not support Retina yet. Be sure to let them know via email that it's important to you.


The latest 2.0 beta just added Retina support.

I use Clarify on Mac and on Windows and it works seamlessly for me.
It is perfect for the daily documentation and communication.

And with in a short time it is not really complicated to build your own PDF templates for the export. Perfect for corporate design rules in documentations.

I recently purchased this as part of a bundle, and have been meaning to get around to write a review.

It's a decent app, but it could be so much better. There are some clear features that just feel strange that they are not included. For example you can't export as HTML.

The UI is nice, but not great.

This could be a very good tool, but they are let down by curious gaps (a desire to drive you to their hosting?) and an "almost but not quite" clever UI.

Use it for sending a quick help file, but you can't actually develop help with it. It's pricey considering.

Would be a 4-star app if it took full page screen captures. If I've got to keep track of full-page screenshots on my desktop and insert them into the document, it makes more work for me, especially since Voila and some others already do it. The Evernote function is amazing, but I'm still having a bit of buyers remorse.

totally useless for people who use fullscreen apps - it's not working and support said will not work in near future (is it really so difficult?!? look at competitors software - they can do it flawlessly, little snapper for example and so on)

crashed few times

didn't start from shortcut few times


- featureless
- impossible to use in ordinary use cases (like fullscreen)
- not stable

my advice - buy something else

I'm a bit confused. Do you want to use Clarify in Fullscreen mode, or are you trying to take screenshots of other apps in Fullscreen mode using Clarify?

Clarify might seem limiting (you say featureless), but it's built around a simple methodology: if you're document becomes complex, you probably haven't clarified or broken the topic down enough. Clarify is perfect for answering customer questions like "how do I enable universal access," it's not meant for building whole help manuals or overly complex procedures.

You need to understand what/how/and why Clarify is designed for. It's a tool and it has a specific use model. You wouldn't pickup a hoe and try to dig a foundation to your house, you need the right tool for the job.

I'm a big fan of Clarify. It's all about finding the right workflow. Clarify is not designed to maintain entire manuals, just one-off documents. I rarely save Clarify documents, instead, I create instructions quickly and upload them to clarify-it.com to share.

The tool can seem limited at times (e.g. no hierarchy for steps), but after I learned about the companies methodology behind Clarify (http://www.bluemangolearning.com/customer_support/), I've found a new way to approach my instructions which both fits the style of Clarify and is usually quicker/easier to make. Before, it was like swinging a hammer with the head sideways. You can probably get the job done, but it won't be easy. Now I know how to use the tool right and I'm much happier with the results.

Not updated for Retina displays. Bummer, it's been months. Snagit was updated in July. Otherwise, it has some nice features. The document idea is great. I hope the developer fixes it.

Great App. But I miss the possibility to create a screenshot of the full content of a browser window if this is bigger than my screen – or am I to blind to find this option?

Clarify does not have the option to capture the entire web page in a browser yet.
