CleanShot X has quickly become one of my most used 'invisible' apps that just fits into my workflow. Whether I'm pointing out some sweet new app feature to a friend, sharing my a screenshot to social media, or capturing a GIF to report a bug, I'm using CleanShot in each of those cases!
Matt Stein,
Web designer & developer
You’ve stylishly and intuitively combined some of the best features I’ve seen in different apps and focused them into a fast, unobtrusive tool. It’s exactly the kind of utility I would’ve hoped for. I love CleanShot and it’s easily one of the most useful apps I’ve purchased in a long time.
Jordan Borth,

The option to hide desktop icons and add margins to screenshots is super nice. The annotation tools are intuitive and being able to drag from the toolbar is super handy. I also love that there are tons of customization options!
Shawn Roos,

CleanShot is one of those few apps that is so good it becomes invisible, an extension of your work. It’s one of the first apps I install on any machine and easily one of my most used apps daily.
Eric Lima,
Founder of MakerNews
It's by far the best app I've come across to get those clean screenshots and recordings you always see and want. Do yourself and your time a favor and get CleanShot.
Jonno Riekwel,
UI Designer
This is a great little app that packs a punch. Hiding all the desktop icons, and replacing my wallpaper when taking screenshots are the killer features for me.
