Version 1.2
Review by Kobi Tate

Great app, familiar for former Skitch users - I used to use Skitch when it wasn't owned by Evernote. When the new version released, I wasn't pleased. This app fills the whole left by Skitch very well, even more now that it supports multiple colors. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a quick screenshot annotation tool.

Simple, light on features, and PLEASE keep it that way! - Clean efficient apps like this inevitably get “hey, it’s great, but…. I just need THIS little feature added”… and you end up with some horrible mess like Skitch. I’m very sure Sebastian understands this, and I thank him for this excellent work.

Review by FilmPhotoWeb

I like it okay - Overall, I like it fine. Two things I’d like to see. Give me the ability to change away from the god-awful font for the note-taking feature. And it would be nice to be able so snap multiple screenshots and name them later. If you don’t save one before snapping the next, the first one goes away. Not optimal. So room to improve, but good as it is.

Really good! - So glad I found this! This is a great skitch replacement. I too have a few suggestions. 1. Name before saving. A directory full of “2014-04-07 at 5.01 PM.png” can be tough to find anything in. 2. Save to local directory. I might want to store in a different location even within Dropbox. 3. Fire some hook after saving. I’d like to sync to my own server because I'll serve the images myself. Those aside, I agree that it’s not necessary to add much. The image touch-ups are just enough. I only care to add some arrows and text for collaborating. It doesn’t need to be photoshop.

Nice app.. feature request - Old skitch let you drag the bottom right hand corner of the window to resize the image. I use that feature every day so it would be great to have in this app too.

Review by meligi1

The best Screenshot App! - So easy and fast to use! Much better than Skitch and other more compliated apps.. One feature I’d LOVE to see is being able to generate the link BEFORE it’s fully uploaded, so that i don’t have to wait a few seconds before being able to paste it. If someone by accident clicks on a link of a picture that has not being fully uploaded you can present an “Uploading” progress bar. This is how Tapes app does and love it. Thank!
