Explainer Screenshots

By Kitestack Software

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


Do you ever explain “computer stuff” to other people? Instead of writing long winded emails filled with screenshots, or spending time on the phone, use the Explainer app.

With the app you can capture multiple snapshots into a single image.

Explainer app is for those times when a single screenshot is not enough, but a screen recording too much of a hassle.


1. Capture up to eight pictures of your screen

2. Arrange them into a sequence of steps

3. Add instructions if needed

4. Share via email, Facebook, etc., or save as image file


- You have to explain a sequence of steps


- A single screenshot is good enough

- Things are too complex to express in 4 to 8 steps (consider a screen recording app)

What's New in Version 2.0

Lots of new features:
- The sidebar: giving you detailed control of all design aspects
- You can now change the font, font size, text- and background colors
- Full undo/redo support

There is now also an In-App purchase for those of you who would like to save your screenshots to make changes later on. If you like the app and you would like to support its future development, take a look at what else you get with the purchase.

Customer Reviews

Handy little tool

I'm a big fan of apps that do "one thing well," and Explainer does just that. Some people might dwell on the simplicity and perceived limitations of the app, but I actually enjoy the constraints as it forces me to think harder about what I'm trying to convey. The result is almost always better than a 400 word document with a handful of screenshots.
