Customer Reviews

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.

Very nice app

If you do a lot of training documentation and video tutorials, this app is an amazing way to capture your screen and remove unwanted distractions. Simple and effective. Would agree that it would be nice to group the layering, but doesn’t make or break the app at all.


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.
