SnapNDrag Pro is screen capture made ridiculously easy. Here is an app you didn't know you need until you try it.


As the old saying goes, "A screenshot is worth a thousand words."

There are myriad reasons to take a screenshot: note-taking, tech support, comparison shopping, on-screen reference etc.

SnapNDrag is the perfect screenshot tool for students, teachers, designers, developers, support … just about anyone who uses a computer, really.

Why use SnapNDrag over OS X's built-in Grab? Because SnapNDrag does much more than just *take* screenshots. Please read on.


SnapNDrag makes taking screenshots super easy. Click, select and the screenshot is added to your library.

SnapNDrag maintains a library of all the screenshots you have ever taken. Think of it as iPhoto for screenshots. You can organize by Folders. You can batch rename items. You can type into the search field and get live updates in the browser. SnapNDrag maintains its own Trash so you undo a delete if you need to.

If a screenshot is worth a thousand words then an annotated screenshot is worth a million. Simply double click to open an item for editing in Preview. Use Preview's edit tools to add text, draw arrows or circles. When you hit Save in Preview, SnapNDrag instantly picks up the changes and updates the browser. Since what you're editing is a *copy*, you can easily revert to the original.

When it comes time to share, SnapNDrag provides many ways to do that. Use the Share button to send via Mail, Messages, AirDrop, Twitter, Facebook, Flickr. Or drag a screenshot from the browser and drop it into the Mail or Message you're composing -- in fact, you can drag it to pretty much any app where it makes sense. And if you're old school, copy-and-paste works too.


Don't let SnapNDrag's simplicity fool you. When you dig deeper, you will find lots of options to satisfy the power user. For example, you can activate functions using global hot keys. You can also run SnapNDrag as a background app (no Dock icon).

The best

I've used many screenshot organizers, but this one is the best I've tried, and certainly the most bang for the buck. One nice feature is that SnapNDrag makes it easy to move your library from computer to computer or change it's location. The only thing that's missing is an option to automatically send the screenshots to a specific sub-folder assigned to screenshots from the specific application. I suppose they didn't add this because screenshots can be taken of app windows that are not in the frontmost active application; however, most screenshots are taken of the active application's windows, so that would reduce the amount of manual sorting. Only white-listed apps with would need to be auto-sorted and the rest could be assigned to the "unfiled" folder for manual sorting. I take thousands of screenshots and 99% are within the active front application, so that would save me very much time.

I am STILL liking and using SnapNDrag ...

I have had it and used it in my Macbook for many years, and when I replaced it with a 2019 model I was nervous about which old apps might not work – or work unreliably – esp. free apps, shareware that I've paid for, and licenses I pay for over time.

When I got the new Macbook Pro, I finally purchased a license for SnapNDrag Pro! I realized that I had come to depend on it so thoroughly that I had to ensure it helping me in the new environment.

And it has!! I also benefitted from the new and more adept functions SnapNDrag Pro has – such as getting MY CHOICES on filetype it can save, on naming default sequenced name & numbers but which I even batch-change days or months after taking any number of screenshots. Simply put it has customizable qualities that Apple used to embrace in its ethos, but seems to have watered down for a mass audience. Hurray for Jay Teo.

Part of my toolkit now

I’ve waited to write a review until I was sure… I’m sure.

I also own most of the tools that manage screenshots and this is the one I use. I like the easy editing tools and the ability to create folders for each ‘session’ of screenshots so for instance, when I’m doing documentation I can put all the screens for a product in one folder and keep them separate from the next project. In every product, there are things I’d change, but they are nit-picking things. I would like a keyboard command for bringing up the screenshot browser.. new folders created at the top or bottom as an option. But without reservation this is my favorite.
