Things are improving, but we still need Skitch 1.x functionality, see feature request: https://monosnap.nolt.io/25

I bought the yearly plan and I was running into an issue after that. I asked for the refund and they will not refund me because of their "terms". I only used my plan for a day and asked for a fix. They didn't fix the issue and they never refundeded. What's more they closed my account as they said I was not using Monosnap according to their "terms". And I barely used their application! And I paid for a yearly plan just to be cancelled??? I was sure the issue was in Monosnap because the my S3 keys was working on all other accounts. Their support response take 5 days, many issues. I will never recommend it.

Just so let down with this app. It had such potential to become the Skitch 1 replacement, but instead of focusing on it and what was important (and doing a real study to imitate it), they got lost along the way. Sad to see that this app just doesn't cut muster the oomph to really compete as it could have.

it is also on a subscription plan wagon., although the "non-commercial" use is free. snapndrag is the best of the best anyway.

They have taken away the ability to upload snapshots onto "External Services" — anything other than Monosnap's own storage (Dropbox, your own FTP servers, etc.) from the free version. That feature now costs $99.99 as an in-app purchase. Wow, just wow. Charging users (much) more to NOT upload to the Monosnap servers. I don't know if I'll find anything better but I'll be looking elsewhere for my needs. I definitely will not continue to use Monosnap.

-- Shadow added to all type of screenshot, not only to screenshot of windows

Rly? Are you kidding me?
At least make it optional!

Oh, my bad. Didn't spot the option. It's at Monosnap's Preferences > Interface and disable Add shadow to image.

great software, nearly replaces skitch however only downfall is that it does not keep a history so you can't go back to previous screen shoots every new one overwrites the old one. I would give it 5 stars if they introduce a history

excellent screenshot utility.. i've tried them all . skitch, snapndrag, snapz pro, shotty, and many others. Love the guides, love the different ways of taking a snap, the add-on services to upload. It can also record video just as easy. My absolute favorite feature (the only screenshot app that has this) is the automatic renaming of the screenshot to the name of the snapped window. Great and fast support. Developers are updating this app continously. keep up the good work

I'm a great fan of this app and respect the developers for their work. Not sure why but versions 3.4.0 and 3.4.2 automatically start even when disabled in preferences. I've reported it to support however haven't received any response yet. I've resorted back to 3.3.0 for now. One would think this would be caught in regressions testing.

Finally, the perfect snapping tool: the annotation tools are much better than the others I tried, even the paid ones (SnapNDrag).

I tried to use this but the first thing it asked for is to create an account on their servers. Straight into the trash. I'll use an old version of Skitch instead.

I think this finally replaces Skitch for me. I would like to see on localhost (on-system) image cataloguing function similar to Skitch 1.x vs having to rely on the online options and so if they add this I think they'll finally have hit the sweet spot. I would also like the option of having larger outlines around objects like Skitch as well.

Useful for a free app. Its principal downsides are: a) won't grab the audio from what you are caputuring, and b) the precision area selection tool only works for stills, not video (you can get kinda-sorta specific, but not pixel-perfect). So, usefulness is sharply limited. Was hoping to see some improvement on these fronts by now.

This is very strong replacement option to Skitch 1.0. It needs to have some options for outlining the objects with another color and if it had a library manager to view all past edited / uploaded files handily like Skitch, it would be a home run. Working with 10.11.

Impressive start, and could directly compete with Voila, if only it would capture video the same way it does stills (with selectable box tool), and capture the computer audio (e.g. your Skype video conference call's sound, and whatever you have iTunes playing quietly in the background at the same time, or whatever). Basically, I'm going to end up paying for Voila, unfortunately, because Monosnap just can't handle this core functionality yet. It will capture fullscreen, or a big vague area of the screen that can be resized down a bit before recording, and it with include audio-IN, e.g. from the mic, or an external music source, so it's probably good for narrating app demos or something. If you want to do your own videogaming vlog on YouTube, this may be the free app for you. :-) If you want to record a specific corner of an existing video file with its audio, for example, it is not the app for you. Nor if you want to rip, to a new video file, some Flash video from a website that is resistant to the usual Flash downloading plugins. I also agree with other comments about the "nagware" aspect of this. Many of us do not need, use, or even trust cloud services like the one being promoted by this app. It's not that it's unreasonable that this app is ad-funded, but there needs to be a way to say "I really did mean NO." That said, it's great for still-image screenshots. If that's what you mostly want, this is vast improvement over OS X's built-in screencapping.

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

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.

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.
