Who are these people that apparently LAUD the Ember app with Commendations? They are probably employees or relatives of the CEO. They are named on the Developer's Website. They are Paul Lloyd,James Engwell,Minik Rather,Josh Collie.My guess is they may be fictitious names or relatives of the CEO.

JetPhotoStudio is a good alternative.It is FREE as in Beer audits useful,it does not have all the many features of Little Snapper but it is useful. I am submitting it as an alternative,it works on many Mac platforms.

I Spoke too soon! Little Snapper is worthless now. I thought it was working because I saw the interface but it does not work anymore. The greedy developer wants his due. I won't give to him.

I really wanted to like this app. It was important that access to files on Ember was available on my iOs devices. They began to incorporate iCloud for this to happen. This is where trouble occurred for me. Ember worked fine on my desktop but on all my iOs devices the library could not or would not keep up to date. Files were not accessible across the platforms. I was in touch with support and they responded quickly and attempted to help unfortunately they could not solved the problem. I gave up.... and found other apps or methods to replace Ember. Also the capture function stopped working many weeks ago. I just don't think apps should need so much problem solving to work. I hope others have better luck...

Greedy, the exact word for Realmac Software.

On OS X Rapidweaver probably is the only app still in their portfolio with a track record. All others (like Courier, Littlesnapper, Sociale where either sold or discontinued. (Analog is for sale).

On iOS they had trouble when releasing a second version for Clear and now they notified us that Analog is for Sale.

Dan Counsell, their CEO and writer of many blog posts on how everybody should behave to make the MAS and App Store eco system sustainable is only part of it.

Their desire to monetize what they've made, rather than make new stuff, is showing in the RapidWeaver space. They have lots of videos on-line that you have to buy access to through a subscription. These videos are targeted toward non-technical users who are struggling to use RapidWeaver or to implement advanced features.

A colleague was considering using the tool after I helped her set up her site but found the costs and the large learning curve to be to much. I've long since moved to WordPress and Drupal to build sites. The niche that RapidWeaver filled -- Pagemill and other sub $100 web design packages -- has a couple entries now.

I suppose it's the end of a business cycle for them. Once RapidWeaver goes on the market, they're toast. Good riddance.

They can believe what they wish but the price is going to keep me from buying it, at $49 there are other more feature rich options which are cheaper.

I was a huge fan of LittleSnapper but the pricing behind this is not going to win them my business.

Well, I'm grateful that the trial version allowed me to export my LittleSnapper library. I'm also grateful that RealMac has shown me exactly what kind of company it is. Got my money once, but I don't duplicate my mistakes. BTW, that $50 price tag, given the competition, is laughably optimistic.

5 stars for LittleSnapper
0 stars for the company
? Stars re Ember: don't know anything beyond the quick export feature, and plan to keep it that way

C'mon Realmac, where's the respect for having such an impressive list of long-time users of LittleSnapper? Many of who have also shelled out the dough for your other apps and stuck with Realmac, singing your praises to anyone who would listen along the way (i.e., years of unwavering loyalty...seriously...no, really really... scout's honor seriously...ARE you even paying attention?). We love Realmac. We love LittleSnapper. We loved feeling like we mattered and into the Realmac family...and that we felt proud to be part of something big and advocate for the little guy developer. We've thrown punches for you whenever and wherever possible.

Yet now, each of us seem to have become the little guy. But who is advocating for us? Surely Realmac would be first in line?

Imagine if Ember were launched not with a price tag or payola and freebies for reviewers, but had instead opted to cash in the years of building a community of users that most developers can only dream of. So Realmac, holding true to their edgy reputation and innovative flair, took crazy pills instead.

Anwyay, rather than repeat the same list of qualms and complaints noted by others regarding Ember's wholesome wtf-ness (i.e., that which honestly, sincerely, and we're-not-joking just simply feels like one giant middle-finger pointed in our direction), I'd like to make a last-ditch plea to Realmac...THROW US A BONE? An omg-just-kidding-about-the-$49.99 holiday sale for $10? Or, if nothing else, maybe a get well soon card to help us get through the impending breakup.

Excuses of a greedy company. AgileBits managed sales and refunds with MAS version of 1Password nicely. That's why I stayed with that company. Realmac? No, thanks.

Keep in mind Apple collects one third the sales of every piece of software it sells in the MAS. RealMac is only seeing about $35 on each download. I think the real issue here is that Apple is collecting too much for software that they didn't write.

  • Organise your ideas and design inspiration. Drag in images from your Mac and around the web, and organise them into Collections. Apply tags to images, and build Smart Collections based on the tags and other metadata in your library.
  • Subscribe to your favourite websites. Subscriptions allow you to visually browse the web. Images can be saved to your Ember library, and shared with friends and co-workers.
  • Build a scrapbook of designs you love. Save websites to your Ember library from Safari and Chrome with the powerful browser extensions. Ember doesn't need to be running, and you can send images to collections right from your browser. Ember uses the width of your browser window when snapping, meaning that the layout is exactly the same in the captured image. Ember also features a responsive browser, allowing you to save responsive webpages at any desired width, and the Element Selection mode detects appropriate areas of the webpage to snap as you roll over them. There's even handy presets for your favourite iOS devices to quickly set the browser width.
  • Take Screenshots. Take screenshots with Ember, and they'll automatically appear in your library with the name of the app applied to them. You can capture Fullscreen, Timed Fullscreen, Area and "Window" images.
  • Sketch feedback on your images. Beautiful drawing and text tools allow you to give feedback on images. Cropping and rotation ensure that your images are always perfectly sized and aligned.
  • Go Full Screen. Work undistracted with Ember in its own space.
  • Share with friends and co-workers. Send your images with Email, AirDrop, Messages, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Flickr and CloudApp.
  • Auto-detects iPhone and iPad screenshots. Library organisation has never been easier: just drag in those PNGs from your favourite iOS device and Ember will automatically sort them into "Phone" and "Tablet" for you!
  • Import from LittleSnapper. Ember imports libraries from LittleSnapper, and adds them to your Ember library.
