Snappy - Snapshots, the smart way.

By Nextwave Digital

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


Take always-on-top snaps of your screen, annotate, share encrypted with self-destruct, everything neatly organized in your library and synced across your devices.

** “I use it all the time, especially when I am writing about something that is time sensitive or has a complex date” -

The main interaction allows you to capture a screen area and automatically pins it above all windows, always on top, always visible - just like a memory you want to keep in focus.
Once the snap is created, you can easily annotate and share it.

- Snap & Pin -
Snap something from Window A so you can reference it in Window B. The snap is always on top so you can focus on the content. Command+Tab breaks context and focus, SnappyApp fixes that.

- Annotate -
Draw, write, erase and undo. Using annotations you can highlight what is important and take notes right on the snap.

- Share -
Right click on the snap and select how you want to share it. So far we've got Snappy Link, Email, Facebook, Twitter, Imgur, Pinterest, Dropbox and Evernote.

- Organize -
With the Snaps Library, the built in screenshot organizer, you can easily keep track of all your snaps. And with iCloud enabled, you have them synced across all Apple devices.

Get started:
Notice the icon in the top right status bar. That's where SnappyApp runs seamlessly.
Create a new snap with ⇧⌘2 (Shift+Command+2) - when the crosshair appears, simply select the screen area you want to snap and you're done.

Solid application

Snappy works well - being available at the top of the screen makes it more effective. As I am learning it, it is on occasion confusing as to how to get it to do what I want after I take screen shots, but there is a list of commands available to help with that.
