Some pictures are worth a thousand words. Shoots & Leaves is for the rest.

Take a picture with Shoots & Leaves, and it gets uploaded to a hosting service. It supports services such as:

* Amazon S3
* CloudApp
* Dropbox
* Evernote
* Imgur
* Your WordPress blog
* Your web server (via SFTP)

The app gets a link to the uploaded photo and does *something* with it. You decide what that something is. For example, you can:

* Create a reminder
* Send a text message
* Send an email
* Copy to the clipboard
* Open it in Safari
* Send it to an app extension

Shoots & Leaves also supports sending to third-party apps, including:

* Omnifocus
* Drafts
* Evernote
* Simplenote
* Things
* WordPress
* Day One
* …with more coming soon!

You can set up multiple image hosts and multiple actions. Most actions have a template you can use to configure how the data will look when it's passed forward.

And with an x-callback-url compatible URL scheme, you can launch Shoots & Leaves from other apps, like Launch Center Pro.

It's great for photos that are to-do items and don't need to be saved forever. It's also great for mobile blogging: Take a picture and send it straight to your blog.

Shoot, then leave. Easy as that.

"It's a simple premise that works really well, especially if you're running low on storage space on your iPhone and don't want to waste space on photos." – Thorin Klosowski, Lifehacker

What’s New

Version 1.4.1

Fixed a bug introduced in the previous version that prevented setting up actions with 3rd party apps. Sorry about that.

And as we mentioned last time, if you use Dropbox you really need to update, like, now.

Like having a photo library for work

I love this app because I am able to take pictures for work, upload them to dropbox, and quickly create links for them without polluting my iCloud photo library. I use it five or six times a day. While I don’t use a lot of the other features, the dropbox upload feature is enough that it has earned a place on my home screen.

App doesn’t work

Crashes reminders each time. Not worth downloading

Very handy

I haven’t used this app a lot, but it has proven handy for creating reminders with a link to the photo in them. It is a bit tedious, however, to then have to go into the Reminders app to manually add a due date and time. It would be a lot more convenient if there were a way to automatically create a reminder with date and time included. I’ve made suggestions to the developer, who is VERY responsive!
