SnappyApp allows you to capture a screen area and automatically pins it above all windows, always on top, always visible - like a visual memory you want to keep around. And just like a memory, you can share it - by URL, Email, Facebook and Pinterest.

- Snap & Pin! -
Snap something from Window A so you can reference it in Window B. The snap is always on top and will never leave you sight.

- Share! -
Right click on the snap and select how you want to share it. So far we've got URL, Email, Facebook and Pinterest.

- Organize! -
With “Snaps from the past”, the built in screenshot organiser, you can easily keep track of all your snaps.

How to use:
New snap: ⇧⌘2 (Shift+Cmd+2) - when the crosshair appears, simply select the screen area you want to snap
Hide all snaps: ⎇⇧⌘H (Alt+Shift+Cmd+H)

Customer Reviews


One of the applets I use daily. Does what it says - never crashes, easy and straightforward. I use both in the context of my everyday "personal" life - snapping invoice details for use when I'm making online payments through my bank website etc. etc., to using it in my research/work-related tasks, in conjunction with programmes such as DevonThink Pro etc.

The fact that it keeps a record of previous snaps, has been a lifesaver on more than one occassion - as is the possibility of "pasting" out of SnappyApp into other programmes. Something I also use regularly, is taking snaps of various parts of my screen/webpages etc., arranging them in the order I need them to, and then SHIFT+CMD+4 "selective screenshotting" that selection, into a 'new image' - it's incredibly useful for things such as 'stacking' laptop spec comparisons into a single image file etc. etc. - the possibilities are endless.

It's one of those apps you might not immediately think of - but once you begin using it, you will wonder how you ever managed without it… Worth every cent, and then some.

Excellent. So helpful

I had to stop what I was doing this morning as I used SnappyApp once again and make the time to write this review. Kudos to the dev. I cannot believe how useful this app is. I have been using it for some time but find myself using it more and more. Snap an image, save it or copy it or just let it hang there while I use the info I needed. Brilliant in its simplicity and usefulness. I snap images from bank statements when working on finances, snap graphics. I have found myself snapping images from my mind mapping software projects because it is faster and easier than exporting. And the quality is very good. I snap images when I have a list to transfer or have thoughts that I want to keep up front. Still discovering. Vital part of my workflow now.

Would love some simple annotation and resize features

I love the simplicity of this app compared to other bulky programs like sketch and glui. I love that this runs in the background and I don't have to fuss with some cluttered interface just to take a few screenshots here and there. WIth that said, I would find it extremely useful to have *simple* basic annotation on images in the context that they're already in. I use this to collate multiple images and create "scrapbook" type images for the purpose of note taking and studying. It would be nice to be able to highlight or underline certain portions of my snaps while I'm creating them…would also love the ability to resize snaps in realtime with some sort of keyboard or mouse shortcut. Hope these might be possible in future updates. Thanks!
