I was a long time Snapz Pro user but it stopped working in 10.8. I have several other screen capture utilities but this one has become my go-to app especially menu capture with menu bar. Great job! Also the source code is available on github. I hope to review it soon.

Excellent app. Easy to use. Works in OSX10.8 as well. My only wish item is that I could just capture an area by click/dragging the cursor, otherwise a 5 star app.

A fine app which does exactly what it's supposed to. Easy to install and understand, with lots of tweaks & features for different kinds of screen captures which don't get in your way when you just want to do something simple.

Many thanks to the developer for offering this app for free !

Two PS to him: one of the preferences allows one to add a border to a captured image... how about allowing one to specify the border color? Also, the only bug I've found after several weeks of regular use is the "About SimpleCap" window which doesn't open in the foreground... one has to shuffle around the active windows to find it. Neither is a big deal.

Would be great if it could also send/share screenshots with certain image hosters or own FTP servers.

Otherwise, very handy little programme!

This program is a model for Apple style interface simplicity: It can be used in the most basic way while brain dead. BUT There's much more here than immediately meets the eye.

Most of the things requested here (and many many more), already exist in the App. I'm not going to bother detailing all the options and preferences.

Just look at prefs and go to the HELP MENU (which directs you to the online manual).

If this program did audio/video capture - I could dump all my other screen capture utilities. On second thought, I wouldn't mind a separate app by this developer that did vid capture.

simplecap manual
http://xcatsan.com/simplecap-en/manual.html

using modifier keys gives you more options on the floating commands, including copying to clipboard.

despite, not having marking abilities, i found out preview.app has good annotation capabilities. just add preview.app to the helper apps in preferences, take a screenshot, click preview.app in the simpleviewer window, make the annotations, save and the image is automatically updated in simpleviewer.
you can add other helper apps, such as mail or maybe even imageshack uploader (didn't tried it). http://reg.imageshack.us/content.php?page=uploader

as far as i'm concerned, simplecap is the easiest, fastest and best screenshot taker app. no proprietary libaries of your images, no tags, smart folders or other useless stuff that makes screenshot taking a slow process and an excuse to make money, as some shareware alternatives do.

oh, and it gets perfect screencaps of a full menu hierarchy (contextual or menubar), with or without background, which is something some apps fail to do even with a timed capture function.
