I simply love this little app and use it nearly daily. It runs on my laptop and I’ve set up a keyboard shortcut to instantly take a screenshot of whatever I want on my screen and save it as a PNG.
The reason why I love it so much, is that you can capture a screenshot, and then annotate it by drawing arrows, boxes and textboxes. It’s the easiest way to “discuss” something on your screen … I grab a screenshot and email or WhatsApp it to a team member.
You can also do short screencasts (videos of what is happening on your screen).
This is a web-based app that runs in your browser and you can download it here.
Look at the YouTube video below to see how it works:
