Very cool app - This is very similar to Layersapp at less than 1/5 the price at retail. It saves all your screen elements into a layered PSD file.

I only get an icon - Yes, just an icon and no app. I try to open and nothing happens. I looked on my app purchases and nothing shows up.

Perfect for my needs! - This app has all the things I need! I highly recommend it, if you are making screenshots for manuals and other instructional materials. PROS Separates everything on the screen into layers, so I can easily delete menu bar clutter, desktop icons, even the desktop itself. It captures the cursor in its own layer, so I can put it wherever I need it. In Photoshop, it also puts the little info boxes that PS generates, for instance the one showing how many pixels you’ve moved, into their own layer. It separates drop down menus (and submenus) into their own layers. Talk about making my life easy! It can take timed screenshots, so I can set it up, and then hold down keys that would prevent the screenshot from working You can save the screenshots to any folder on your hard drive CONS It doesn’t let you change the keyboard shortcut (shift-command-5) There are no social media gizmos, but since I’m doing the screen shots for instructional materials, I don’t need that. It might be a consideration for others, though.

Almost Perfect - This app is awesome. The only thing I could think of which would make it better is grouping of layers in the generated document. For example, each status icon on the menu bar gets its own layer in the document -- it would be great for these to all be grouped together in order to make managing layers easier.

Not for Multiple Monitors - Grab allows you the option of capturing the entire screen, a window,a selection, or a timed screen. ScreenShot is only going to caputre the entire screen. If you have multiple monitors being used, all screens of your monitors are captured into one file by ScreenShot. ScreenShot only seems to be mimicing Apples own keystroke command for capturing the screen. Command-Shift-4 (w/wo spacebar). ScreenShot file type is different so it allows a pixel editor to open it directly. Other optional apps: Skitch, Monosnap, Jing. With multiple monitors, ScreenShot is not very useful.

Review by Vonster

Very Limiting - Several clear problems: - Cursor won’t be captures in “Adobe Illustrator” for example. Thus app is useless for screen capturing process shots. - Cursor not showing up when captured in Yosemite either? - Zero customization. The prefs control is a joke. I want to set my own hot key. Having it shift command 5 causes the cursor to change look. - No way to tell app to capture only primary screen, thus two displays are captured. Waste of time. Looks like it would be promising but just not working well on my 5K iMac running latest Yosemite OS.
