Save time and easily collaborate when working with content.
With Always-on-Top Snaps, Annotations and Secure Image Sharing, Snappy is on a mission to win back the time you lose on the daily work with content.

** “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.

What’s Not to Like about SnappyApp?

I am forever capturing images for my blog, quotes for my writing, prices and such for purchases I am planning. The old ways of screen capture are just a painful memory now that I am using Snap to display, annotate and share with so few keystrokes and such logical organization of access and use of my clips. I am only sorry it took me so long to discover something I’ve needed since the beginning! I wish there were settings to send mail through gmail and not the default apple Mail app; and it would be nice if there were settings that sent clips automatically to the gallery instead of making them “stay on top” until dismissed though a hotkey can be set to dismiss all snaps. Great useful beautiful tool!

Every Mac user needs SnappyApp!

SnappyApp is great! I use it frequently each day, and the manufacturer creates wonderful new features continually. Their tech support is very responsive and very helpful.

I can't describe all the SnappyApp features or my review would be way too long, you need to discover them yourself, so I'll try to describe the Mac user that needs SnappyApp:

If you use images for work, for fun, or if you want to use them to better describe what you are talking about in your emails, or you see stuff on your Mac that you don't want to forget, or want to share them with your iOS devices or use AirDrop or social media, or edit images you see on your Mac, or print them, or if you use DropBox or EverNote…

Ok, my description was way too narrow; every Mac user needs SnappyApp!

Who needs Grab?

I don’t screencap that often, but when I do, I hate having to open Grab separately, save the screencap, open it in Preview and re-save it as a JPEG. If Grab offered to save a file in different formats instead of TIFF only, I may still use it, but SnappyApp is always there, easy, saves in various formats, and offers social media integration - so much better than Grab. And free! Can’t beat it.
