Far be it from me to try to figure out Apple’s business model (I sold the stock just before the split), but Mac users can choose from a few dozen screen capture utilities. Here’s one that’s free. And it’s also almost free.
Click, Snap, Whatevers
SnappyApp is a Mac screen capture tool that comes with a few bells and whistles that make it worthy at the price of free, more so with a few add on functions that are almost free.
First of all, SnappyApp snaps screen shots, particularly sections of the Macs screen, and can blur out areas you won’t want to have in focus.
Second of all, SnappyApp has a built-in annotation tool so you can draw, write, erase on the screen section you snapped.
Thirdly of all, SnappyApp has the coolest of cool built-in Snap and Pin features. Snap something from Window A and display it in Window B and always on top so you can see it.
Fourthly, it comes with all the standard vanilla social and share options, including Dropbox, Evernote, Pinterest, Imgur, Email, Facebook, Twitter, and Snappy Link.
Wait. There’s more!
If you install SnappyApp on your Mac it comes with a built-in screenshot organizer browser so you can view all of what you’ve snapped, more easily share the snaps, and importantly, sync the whole mess with iCloud so the snaps are available on other Macs.
Not bad for free, huh?
What’s almost free? SnappyApp has a price tag for certain features; annotations are a couple of bucks, pixel perfect mode is a dollar, Evernote and Dropbox add-ons another dollar, and the Power Pack of features a whopping $2.99.
See? Free. And almost free. In the same app.
