Quite misleading to have a "download" button with no prices shown and then give the user a $9.99 paywall afterwards. Otherwise seems like a nice product.

@peedutuisk And a "close" button that actually doesn't close the modal but expands it even more... cool product tho. no need for those tactics.
@peedutuisk Yeah, I did the same, saw the order form, and closed the web site tab without any further look.

@ohadaviv @peedutuisk Sorry, this is definitely not supposed to happen, it was a problem with the overlay provided by our payment service. We've already fixed it on the site, and made the overlay appear like it's actually supposed to and the close button work correctly. Thanks so much for noticing that, we appreciate your feedback!
@jshchnz Kudos, Josh. I actually rediscovered Screenie when I saw the Pearl app featured today, thought about how many screenshots I take at work and decided to buy this. Then I looked for a promo code in this thread and found my own dismissive comment. I'm a changed man ;) Just purchased it.
You can paste screenshots directly into a lot of programs. Maybe people don't realize the many screenshot - keyboard shortcuts and modifiers that MacOS has? For example, ⌘ + shift + 4 gets you a cursor you can drag and save a screenshot that saves to your desktop. If you add the control key to that it copies the screenshot, and then you can paste it into apps like iMessage, Messenger, Slack, JIRA, Preview etc. Adding the spacebar switches from a dragging screenshot to a camera icon that you can click on any window to get a screenshot for the whole window. Using 3 instead of 4 gets you full screen screenshots, and again using the control key copies the screenshot instead of saving it to the desktop.

@shimmb Macbook user for 6 years, didn't have a clue. Thank you!
@shimmb Yeah, I was trying to understand what the advantage of this app is and why it is being upvoted so much; Especially at a cost of $9.99 and the fact that I can do almost anything this can do using the built-in features of the OS... You can also change where screenshots are saved and the file format using some Terminal commands. I still don't see what the appeal of this app is.
@shimmb I had no clue about the spacebar and ctrl options. Great tip, thanks!
My thoughts, as well. Though, this does give you easy access through the menubar, which is nice!
@shimmb Agree, the Mac's keyboard shortcut for screenshots is much easier to use.
Testing this out at the moment. I use Apple's built in screenshot tool constantly throughout the day and got quite use to it, didn't feel like it lacked anything. Lets see how this will change my opinion. Annnnnnnd its behind a paywall... Maybe offer a demo?

@jshchnz great app. you should mention the discount in the description OR have this comment pinned
@jshchnz I'm considering trying it out. But where should type the "PH" into?
This is pretty cool. One of my best productivity hacks was modifying my apple settings to make screenshotting shortcuts easier. Apple>Preferences>Keyboard>Shortcuts Change all of the 3 button shortcuts to 2 button shortcuts. 4x productivity increase in screenshot sharing.
