Works perfectly, however, has not needed options like saving to cloud storage or capturing video.

Still the application is the best for capturing screenshots on OS X although can be easily beaten by Greenshot which is only available for Windows, unfartunately.

I was a droplr hardcore user before. I like droplr simplicity (but powerful) and it blended nicely with my workflow. It's really easy and fast to share screenshots or files with droplr.

But when they updated their pricing policy a few months ago, I find myself always trying to find other tools to replace droplr since then.
And I almost ended up by subscribing their premium services, until I got an update notification from app store about monosnap today.

I remember I downloaded monosnap in the past and I'm not really impressed with its performace at that time.

But then I decided to give it a second try. And guess what...
It's amazing! I found a lot of improvements from the last time I remember tested it. It does everthing droplr does even better.

I can take a screenshot quickly and get the link automatically copied to clipboard. I can share file easily from finder. I can decide what cloud service to be used to store the files even I can upload screenshot to my own ftp server. It has a built in video recorder so I'm no longer need to open screenflow to share a screencast quickly with my remote co workers

I didn't see any negative point so far, so it's save for me to say goodbye to droplr now

Agree 100% Easy to use and powerful tool, using every day and stop using Droplr and cloudapp with Skitch when discovered Monosnap. But why here it say $5 when it Free to download. Only if any body want to use external services then its cost $5.


Yap, they even adding ability to export video to .gif in their latest update. Nice!

This and Click are the BEST software for screen snapshots.

For FREE apps, maybe.

I've tried a lot of capture apps, and I've found SnagIt to be the most useful, but it also costs 50 bucks!

It's especially great at taking captures of entire webpages, even if they're several pages long. I use that function almost daily, and haven't found another app that can do it as well.

Lots of editing options, and also does video.

I haven't tried this app, mainly because I see no significant difference in features or functions from Jing or Skitch, both of which I also no longer use. Why? because Apple's built-in Preview app already does all of these things and doesn't keep bugging you to register with their cloud service. Some of us don't need or use "the cloud" due to security concerns, or simply because its unneeded and should be an opt-in service that can be turned off. (without being continually prompted for logins or waiting on create account splash screens etc) *cough* Skitch *cough* I just don't see the need for installing more redundant software. But it's free, has handy functions and others rate it highly, so if you have the extra drive space, and don't care about having another login and password to keep track of and like its features, go for it.

Good, well-reasoned comment:

EXCEPTING that you said you haven't tried it & are still judging it, based upon what you don't know!

I wondered why someone saw fit to score you negatively on your comment, but prefacing with "I haven't tried it" & then comparing it to others - all without trying it, sort of explains why. Nevertheless, I gave you a positive on your comment.

If this app suits someone - great. Its easy enough using Monosnap to pop a screenshot to the "cloud." I don't use that feature & don't seem to be inundated by any ads.

Sometimes we suffer from utility overload. 5 apps to do virtually the same thing, means I probably don't use any of them a lot.


Why do you need Preview?

command shift 3 and 4 do all the screen capture you need.

Monosnap adds the ability to share.



Poorly-reasoned comment.

You think someone must have actually used an app in order to leave a COMMENT that may help others make an informed decision?

REVIEWS are for those who have used the app and want to rate it based on their perception of its merits.


Rubaiyat, do you truly think "command shift 3 and 4 do all the screen capture you need?"

Good luck trying to add text, arrows, circles, blurs etc. using those shortcuts!
And you'll never get a screenshot of webpages that are several pages long by using ⌘+3 or ⌘+4. Not even Grab can do any of that.
If you want to annotate or edit the screenshot, you'll need an external editor.

A good screen capture app can do all of that and more.


@Big-Johnson I should have tempered it with "…that most people need".

I mostly use Preview for my additional annotation to screen snaps and Voila for virtually everything else.

This ist the absolutely best Screenshot-App I ever had. I tried some of them, but this one offers nearly everything one can have.
Great, thanks for it!!!

This is an amazing program. Well made, does it's job beautifully and to answer the post below is definitely a replacement for Skitch.

I've used Snap n Drag for many years and was looking for something with a few more options. Monosnap is it!

Looks totally awesome. Nice clean interface. Is this the Skitch replacement we've all been looking for? One thing that might be cool is Dropbox integration. This would give access to images on mobile. Liken it so far though! Good job.

Yes, every utility of this kind must simply have Dropbox integration.
