Clarify provides a hassle-free way of turning screenshots into beautiful documents in five minutes or less.

Many screen capture applications let you work with one picture at a time. But combining multiple screenshots into clear documents is a pain. It's such a pain that most of us don't take the time to do it, even though we KNOW our clients, co-workers, and friends would like us to use more pictures when we are trying to help them.

Clarify gets rid of all of the hassle and frustration of creating documents out of screenshots. Say goodbye to working with
What's New
Version 1.2.6:

Fixes:
  • When changing the spelling of a word the color of the word was not being maintained. though no error occurred.
  • Fixed an issue that could occur when closing document windows.

  • Clicking on a word in the spell check suggested word list would insert gibberish.
  • When changing the spelling of a unicode word the text selection after updating the word would not be correct.

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

conclusion:

- 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?

Bought Clarify quite some time ago - and use it regularly. It's simple and great... and I recommend it. But now ScreenSteps caught my attention. Absolutely gotta own that little piece of brilliant software too.
