ShotBox

ShotBox lets you easily markup screenshots as you take them!

ShotBox is a fantastic little utility that pops up when you take a screenshot, allowing you to quickly preview your screenshot, mark it up, and then drag it into other apps!

@joshparnham I love it! Ever single Apple created "Markup" I've hoped someone would build an app that allowed simple markup of screenshots.

@ryan_roberts1 Thanks mate! I completely agree – when I saw the iOS 11 beta I thought it just made perfect sense to integrate with ☺️

@joshparnham Loving it so far! Very handy tool. Got two questions: would it be possible to autosave a screenshot when no edit is needed (much like the iOS 11 behaviour) and can you add a function to markup a screenshot by dragging it on top of the Manu bar icon?

@joshparnham any chance of making it into an IPhone app too?

@t55 Would you be able to clarify what you mean by "autosave"? The screenshots are currently saved to the desktop and you can close ShotBox and select "Save" to keep them. I'm also working on some features now so that you can close the window quicker and have it automatically save the screenshot without needing to press "Save" ☺️ I'll also look into whether I could support screenshots being dragged onto the menu bar icon – great suggestion!

@roulse This application is actually based on a feature coming to iOS 11! It's called Instant Markup and does basically everything that ShotBox does but on iOS: https://www.imore.com/how-use-in...

@roulse But I know the Lickabiltiy guys are awesome and have this app if you're really interested in something like this before iOS 11 ships ⚡️ https://www.producthunt.com/post...

@joshparnham iOS 11 has this brilliant function where you take a screenshot and a popup shows up with that screenshot. You can then do Instant Markup, or do nothing. In the first scenario you edit the screenshot and then save it. In the 'do nothing' scenario the screenshot stays on the screen for 15 seconds or so and then gets filed in the photos library. So in the case of Shotbox: when you act on it you do your thing and save the shot. When you don't act on it it gets saved automatically without any user intervention.
