UPDATE: I submitted feedback for a feature request after downloading 1.3, for Xcode iOS Simulator screenshots to be managed with Shotty. Not only did the developer reply to my request, the feature I requested is now available in 1.4! Where can I pay more money for this???

I’ve been using Shotty for several months, and it’s completely revamped how I manage screenshots. It’s had a few points of friction that slowed things down, but I’m thrilled to see that version 1.3 has fixed every single issue I had! Copying, annotating, and previewing improve my workflow almost as much as using Shotty did months ago. I’ve recommended this app to everybody in my office with a Mac, and I’d pay twice the listed amount again if I needed to!

Tips to supercharge screenshot management even further:
* Create a directory for screenshots: ~/Screenshots - with this, your desktop will forever be clean of screenshots and Shotty is right there in the menu bar to get at them!
* Automate cleanup - for power users, writing a shell script to remove all screenshots older than x days / weeks is pretty easy and can be automated with crontab (I set mine to delete screenshots once they hit 30 days old)

Great app from a great developer


Such a useful app for dealing with recent screenshots and makes it possible to drag and drop them in to apps. The developer is also so responsive to feature requests, as support for screenshots from the iOS simulator was added soon after being requested. So great!

Needs one functionality

One of the greatest screenshot updates Apple came out with was the shift+cntrl+cmnd+4 option to copy the screenshot to your clipboard rather than the desktop, eliminating the screenshot clutter from your desktop. So now that’s the only way I take quick screenshots unless I wanted to save the image long term. Before buying this app I assumed it gave you quick access to recent screenshots you coppied to your clipboard as well… but it doesnt 😤

I understand there may be certain technical constraints that don’t allow this, but am really disappointed the feature isn’t available. Otherwise it seems like a very useful app, just not as userfull as shift+cntrl+cmnd+4 so my use of it will be very limited.
