SnapNDrag Pro is screen capture made ridiculously easy. Here is an app you didn't know you need until you try it.


As the old saying goes, "A screenshot is worth a thousand words."

There are myriad reasons to take a screenshot: note-taking, tech support, comparison shopping, on-screen reference etc.

SnapNDrag is the perfect screenshot tool for students, teachers, designers, developers, support … just about anyone who uses a computer, really.

Why use SnapNDrag over OS X's built-in Grab? Because SnapNDrag does much more than just *take* screenshots. Please read on.


SnapNDrag makes taking screenshots super easy. Click, select and the screenshot is added to your library.

SnapNDrag maintains a library of all the screenshots you have ever taken. Think of it as iPhoto for screenshots. You can organize by Folders. You can batch rename items. You can type into the search field and get live updates in the browser. SnapNDrag maintains its own Trash so you undo a delete if you need to.

If a screenshot is worth a thousand words then an annotated screenshot is worth a million. Simply double click to open an item for editing in Preview. Use Preview's edit tools to add text, draw arrows or circles. When you hit Save in Preview, SnapNDrag instantly picks up the changes and updates the browser. Since what you're editing is a *copy*, you can easily revert to the original.

When it comes time to share, SnapNDrag provides many ways to do that. Use the Share button to send via Mail, Messages, AirDrop, Twitter, Facebook, Flickr. Or drag a screenshot from the browser and drop it into the Mail or Message you're composing -- in fact, you can drag it to pretty much any app where it makes sense. And if you're old school, copy-and-paste works too.


Don't let SnapNDrag's simplicity fool you. When you dig deeper, you will find lots of options to satisfy the power user. For example, you can activate functions using global hot keys. You can also run SnapNDrag as a background app (no Dock icon).

Seems good, not useful for me though


My use case is pretty simple. I take a lot of screenshots that I need to rapidly send and drag into other applications, etc. I was looking for an app that I can quickly access my screenshots instead of opening up a folder and searching for it. I wish there was a way to access the screenshots quicker, much like screenshots on iOS 11.

The second item which I’m not sure was a problem with my system or a bug, but I had changed my screenshot location to a custom folder, then changed it back to desktop, and still the “import screenshots from desktop” option didn’t seem to work. Nothing would get imported with the normals screenshot tool.

Feel free to contact me if I misused the app and I will happily change my rating. Otherwise it seems like a good app for what it has implemented.

The solution of Screenshots!


I travel regularly to meet my appointments at a medical institute in a city almost a hundred miles away. During the trips and while I’m receiving infusions I use my MBP to create many emails and short training modules for our staff and my constituents. Using SnapNDrag has simplified my being able to grab, edit, and use screenshots in my communications sooooo much better and faster than what I had been doing with what the OS provides. A great solution to a simple problem. Apps like this allow me to remain a viable part of my organization when I’m unable to be in-office. Thanks for a great app!

And Apple, what’s the deal? This app or something like it should be one of your OS X defaults!

A great app. Better than Skitch.


This app is fabulous! I require a screenshot app all the time for the training I develop. To communicate information, I’m constantly capturing images and adding arrows, outlines, and text to my shots. This app serves ALL my needs very well, and I’m very demanding. Previously I used the app called “Skitch,” but it developed some weird problems I could not resolve. Ended up buying this app, and I think it’s even better. I have nothing but good things to say after using it almost every day for a month. Worth every penny. It seems like the developer thought of almost everything a user would need.
