Monosnap is a free screenshot program for Mac OS X and Windows. The program allows users to create screenshots, annotate them and upload them to the cloud. It was released for OS X on 11 July 2012.[1] Several days after it was positively reviewed by sites like Addictive Tips,[2] freetech4teachers,[3] OneDayOneApp[4] and MakeUseOf,[5] an update was released on 5 August 2012, providing authorization with email.[6] On 10 August there was a release for Windows, providing similar functionality.[7]

Since 9 October 2012 (version 1.4.0) app allows to upload images to FTP, SFTP or WebDAV Servers. Right now it also has in-app turning on external services support (Dropbox, Evernote, Box.com, CloudApp).

Features[edit]

Screenshots[edit]

Monosnap has two modes of screenshot: the first one grabs the whole screen (or screens). The second mode grabs an area or window of the screen. In the latter mode a magnifier is presented, showing size of the selected rectangle and color of pixel below cursor.

Image editor[edit]

After taking a screenshot Monosnap opens its editor with such tools as pen, line, rectangle, oval, arrow, text and blur. Also it has crop tool to remove unnecessary details if they that has not been done while capturing screen.

After screenshot[edit]

There are several options to proceed with screenshot, available from settings:

  • Open Monosnap Editor - selected by default
  • Save screenshot - saves the image to default folder or opens a dialogue
  • Upload - instantly uploads to the cloud or to FTP/SFTP/WebDAV Server.
  • Open external Editor - opens the image in any installed program capable to work with png format. This option is available only on Mac.
  • "Drag me" feature: from Monosnap Editor images can be dragged into other programs.

Cloud storage[edit]

Using cloud storage requires login with Facebook or email. All uploads can be accessed through website, images can be sorted into folders. There is no limit of cloud space now.
