Snappy

2.0.1
12 August 2017

Screenshot tool with annotations (was SnappyApp).

Overview

Snappy (was SnappyApp) lets you take always-on-top snaps of your screen, annotate, share encrypted with self-destruct, everything neatly organized in your library and synced across your devices. The main interaction allows you to capture a screen area and automatically pins it above all windows, always on top, always visible - just like a memory you want to keep in focus. Once the snap is created, you can easily annotate and share it.

  • Snap and Pin - Snap something from Window A so you can reference it in Window B. The snap is always on top so you can focus on the content. Command+Tab breaks context and focus, Snappy fixes that.
  • Annotate - Draw, write, erase and undo. Using annotations you can highlight what is important and take notes right on the snap.
  • Share - Right-click on the snap and select how you want to share it. So far we've got Snappy Link, Email, Facebook, Twitter, Imgur, Pinterest, Dropbox and Evernote.
  • Organize - With the Snaps Library, the built in screenshot organizer, you can easily keep track of all your snaps. And with iCloud enabled, you have them synced across all Apple devices.

This is a brilliant little app: I use it several times a day for snipping random bits of information cut from web pages or Contacts or whatever, and parking them onscreen for reference. The beauty of it is the directness and speed with which area screenshots can be clipped and then just dismissed with a double click once you have finished with them. the recent upgrades have brought some welcome new features, but I hope the devs keep it fairly simple from here on.

much better than the competition but still has a lot of issues.. for example, why not have an option to just drag the floating screen somewhere instead of having to right click and save or drag from the library? why not have an option to prevent the floating screen from appearing (direct save to library without the floating screen)? .. there's also issues when dragging to certain apps from the library.. shots are not recognized.. for example drag a snap from the library to the browser window and it will not open like it would with any other image.. this happens with other apps too.

I own this app, along with Jing, Capto and SnapNDrag Pro. It's quite good, and getting better (although I'm a little leery of the upcoming cross-platform sync subscription that is apparently coming soon). For me, the biggest miss is the feature that people seem to like the most: the immediate floating of the snapped image. I tend to use screenshot apps to make images I can drag as files into emails or iMessage, and that means I have to close those floating screenshots every time! (If there's a way to turn it off please let me know.) It's very convenient, and MUCH faster than Capto. But sometimes I just end up launching SnapNDrag Pro instead of using Snappy already in my menubar, just because I don't want to deal with closing those floating screenshots. Also, one nice advantage of SnapNDrag Pro is that when you drag out a screneshot to the finder/email/iMessage you can set the image to automatically downsize to 75%/50%/25% of the original, and even specify the size of an optional black border. If I could get resize and optional non-screenshot-float I'd be using Snappy all the time, and I'd give it 5 stars.

Just use OSX's native screenshot functionality when you don't want floating.

Or I could just move to SnapNDrag Pro... which, actually, I did... combined with the built in capture-to-memory of my multiple clipboard app, Copy 'em Paste.

Very good screengrabbing application. What it seems to lack, however, is the function to snap whole windows. Maybe I missed that somewhere, but I haven't found it yet.

@Michael: After you hit the take snap shortcut you can press Space so you can snap an entire window.

Given that this is a freeware product, it's too bad that the developer removed the OS X 10.6.8 compatible Snappy.app download [ http://www.snappy-app.com/downloads/snapyy-legacy-build.zip ]

Such a great app. I really don't understand how I never came across this app before, but since it is free, the PR budget will be nill as well... too bad. Three feature requests: - hid-able menu bar icon - ability to have all screenshots made saved in a specific folder, dropbox or ftp if possible - arrows to annotate with Such a nice surprise to see an app that is best in it's class, and FREE!

Snappy app is quiet nice and easy to use. The floating window feature is very useful and some comparatively simple annotation tools are available too. There are also lots of sharing options, which I never used, tho. The screenshots are just organized/sorted by apps – so if one takes many screenshots only/mostly from one app (like Safari, in my case), organizing those snaps gets frustrating. Folders or tags might be a simple solution for this problem. But one thing is really bugging me: You can't snap website previews of big/tall websites or open images as snaps which are bigger/taller than your display! Those images are always distorted and get shrunk to the max hight of your display. This is very annoying and frustrating if you want to use SnappyApp for design and/or development purpose! I hope this bug gets fixed soon and the SnappyApp team add some better organizing/sorting features in the next version.

Amazingly useful, Apple should definitely hire this guy and incorporate this into the OS. I use this for so many things it would be hard to list them all, suffice it to say that it would be the first utility I'd install on a new machine.

Snappy is my favorite screenshot app. It's fast and somewhat effective. I use it not only for making screenshots but also as a quick diff tool, quick clipboard copy for photoshop etc. It's because the generated screenshot is placed "always on the top" of your mac screen. I thought Snappy App is an abandonware because no word and update from the developer for along time. But the new update is really great. I misunderstood their new Save to Dropbox feature and thought that it will automatically save the dropbox share url to the clipboard as other screenshot app did. But it didn't. It just plainly save the screenshot to dropbox, nothing more, makes this feature a bit useless for me who usually use dropbox to quickshare a screenshot while working with my remote partners. I hope the they will update this function so I can use snappy app for my only screenshot app. At this time I will still using monosnap to quickly share screenshots to the dropbox and ftp.
