It works!!!

This app i found is very useful and is exactly like windows ‘snipping tool’. I have read the other comments and have found that you are saying that it will only open once. Initally I had the same problem but found that the app attaches to the bar up the top of the screen as a picture of ‘scissors’.

Does the job, but without much flair.

The only real gripe that I have about this app is that the program itself can tend to get in the way of what you are trying to capture. If you are capturing a selection, as I often do, it would be good if the program minimised or shrank when you were selecting your area on the screen…. but you soon learn to move it first and then capture. Other than that, it works perfectly well.

Closest app I have found to Windows snipping tool

FINALLY, something that half resembles the awesome Windows Snipping Tool.

I agree, forget the bad reviews below, those people don’t realise that the app stays in your task bar until you close it (you can also make it launch on startup).

I am forced to use a mac for work and am dumbfounded as to how many functional tools are missing from OSX, the terrible bugs and issues with so many programs. The three main systems we use all run terribly on mac…

This app has made life a little bit easier as I use the snipping tool for work purposes everyday. Thanks to whoever developed this.
