Annotate for Mac2.1.4

21 September 2016

Screenshot capture and annotation tool (was Glui).

What is Annotate for Mac

Annotate (was Glui) is the simplest way to capture, annotate and share screenshots.

This is a complete rewrite that builds on what made Glui popular and adds some of the most requested features. It's way faster, far better, and most importantly, just as simple.

Key features
  • Capture a screenshot or drag and drop an existing image.
  • Annotate with arrow, line, text, overlays, rectangle, oval, pen and pixelate tool.
  • Instantly share the image or a link to the image. Annotate integrates with Dropbox and CloudApp.

What's new in Annotate

Version 2.1.4:
  • Fully compatible with Sierra

According to the company, Annotate was sold to CloudApp. CloudApp now has Annotate built-in.

I'm really warming up to this app. I've been using Annotate and Monosnap side by side for about two weeks now. Annotate is so much easier on the eyes; and it provides everything I need in my workflow.

Pros:
- is simple & fast
- has all the tools you need to mark up a screenshot if required (incl. redaction)
- provides the necessary (basic) options for sharing your snaps (Dropbox, email, Twitter, Facebook, and Message; I mostly save to Dropbox or share via Message and email)
- allows you to keep multiple screenshot windows open (love it)
- won't shrink quality/resolution of snaps on Retina systems (an option under Preferences)
- records time-limited GIF movies for quick demos

Cons
- won't grab the title of the window you snap (unlike Monosnap; when I have to take many shots in a row, I keep going back to Monosnap so files in my designated Screenshot folder are not just an endless list of files named by date and time, but categorized by window/app snapped)
- won't let you customize the file name (default is eye-mm-dd at hh.mm)
- won't let you specify a custom default Save folder under Preferences (but will remember your last Save location in the app)
- does not have a Timer feature (although the developer is working on it, I believe)

The developer is very responsive, if contacted, and open to suggestions. Their goal seems to be to keep things simple so as not to overwhelm "nonpower" users — so if you want a ton of customization options, you are not the target audience. However, if you want a nice, quick, reliable screenshot and annotation app, check it out — at $1.99 it's a steal; but at this point, I would even pay $4.99 for it (having the option to keep multiple snaps open at a time alone is worth it for me).

Well, this app looks great and is very easy to use. But it misses many core things like: - Upload to other services (e.g. FTP) or use available Sharing Services (available in the System Prefs) - Only bare customization options (e.g. Font, Styles, …) - A way to set the arrow direction (I almost always drag in the wrong direction) I can't see what's the benefit of using this instead of Preview (under Yosemite) for annotations. So even I have purchased the app I am not using it. My dream team is Dropshare in combination with Preview.

Screenshot apps seem to be a "in" of late — SnappyApp, QuickShot, now Annotate. At this price point, I'd like to see some more features implemented before I actually buy (and not just try): I like the look of Annotate. There are a couple of things I’d love to see before I commit to it: 1) Give me the option to save to a folder of my choice or set a default folder of my choice on Dropbox and/or implement iCloud sync. (SnappyApp syncs through iCloud; Annotate puts its folder into the Apps folder on Dropbox, but Monosnap lets me choose any folder to save images to — much more convenient). 2) Implement a timer function. Sometimes, users want to capture a hidden menu: you start a screenshot timer, and then open the menu, and when the timer is at zero, take a snap of the open (or selected) menu/area. 3) Bump up the resolution (or let users choose) — on a Retina display, the fonts in the screen shot look a bit fuzzy. I used to be a huge fan of Snap-n-Drag, but it looks like it won't implement cloud sync (at least that's the last I head from the developer). For now, Monosnap is my preferred (affordable) choice — sure, its not easy on the eyes and shows some "UX wear" at this point, but the price is right.. FWIW: I emailed the developers of SnappyApp (twice) and the developer of Annotate (once) — asking specific questions. I never received a response from either. Not a good sign in my book, and I won't be dropping $10 on an app if the developer doesn't have time or is set up to respond to a simple email.
