What is the best screenshot app?

Everyday there are thousands of things to be screenshotted. Especially when you are on a desktop. I use Windows and Mac OS what are the best apps you have come across to for both platforms?

    CloudApp

    Great screenshot sharing tool

    Mike CoutermarshEngineer @ PlanetScale · Written
    +1 on CloudApp. The ability to record gifs and annotate screenshots makes it super useful. I like it best because it "just works." I like setting it to default "copy content" to my clipboard, so whenever I take a screenshot, it's easy to paste it right into slack.

    Super minimalistic and clean. Also uploads screenshots to the cloud quickly if you want.

    I've recommended CloudApp so many times and I'll do it so many more times because it's the best. Screenshots, recordings, creating GIFs... CloudApp does it all and makes it so ridiculously easy. I would happily do an infomercial demonstrating the ease of use, complete with overenthusiastic gesturing and yelling.

    Monosnap

    I use it every day. Launch it thru keyboard shorcut and configured it to auto-copy the screenshot to Yoink panel for easy drag-n-drop to another app or website. . Easiest snapshot workflow ever

    Nimbus Screenshot and Screencast

    My favorite screenshot & annotation extension for Chrome

    Graham JenkinCo-founder & CEO, CoinList · Written
    Most of my screenshotting is of web UIs and Nimbus is the best Chrome extension I've used for this. Handles whole page, selected area of a page, cropping, manipulation, annotation and - bonus - records screencasts.

    Opera Neon

    A concept of tomorrow’s web browser you can play with today.

    It is not directly a screenshot tool, but the integrated screenshot function of Opera Neon is pretty amazing I think. I only use this since I installed the browser.

    Tried Recordit and its pretty neat. Love the functionality of uploading the screen-shot directly to the web as a .gif.

    Awesome Screenshot (iOS)

    Screenshot & annotate w/ this extension for Safari on iOS 8

    Kostas XiradakisProduct Manager at Viva Wallet · Written
    I prefer using Awesome Screenshot because it allows me to quickly annotate a screenshot. Alternatively, I use the native MacOS app for screenshot (CMD+Shift+4 for snippets) and automatically placing them in a Dropbox folder to share with friends or coworkers.

    CloudApp Annotate

    Annotate screenshots right from your Mac's menu bar!

    Niv Dror¯\_(ツ)_/¯ · Written
    CloudApp just launched Annotate, which lets you screenshot/GIF/Video record right form your menu bar, and now you can add Skitch-style annotations as well -- super convenient.

    Wondershare Cropro

    Tool should support Windows and Mac I think. Cropro lets you quickly capture any screen, make visual how-to guides, give better feedback and make your communication more productive. http://bit.ly/2vKEoRX
