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.

Things are improving, but we still need Skitch 1.x functionality, see feature request:
Version 3.6.4
19 August 2019
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.
Version 3.6.1
27 July 2019
it is also on a subscription plan wagon., although the "non-commercial" use is free. snapndrag is the best of the best anyway.
Version 3.5.10
22 July 2019
New version asks for 109,99€ to upgrade. Wow!!! Good bye.
Version 3.5.9
20 July 2019
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.

Needs improvements to bring it inline with Skitch 1.x:
Version 3.6.4
09 April 2018
-- 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.
Version 3.4.11

Use this app only to capture screenshots.
Version 3.4.10

Today I've dropped Snagit because Monosnap does what I need and is fast (unlike Snagit).
Version 3.4.10

The current version is 3.4.10
Version 3.4.9
