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!

Yesterday I picked up CleanShot X and am already so happy with it. Makes screenshots, screen recording, and annotation a breeze. Easily a 10x improvement over standard macOS stuff. #notsponsored

I bought this ... half a year ago? and it's one of my favorite Mac apps of all time. Today I realised that it can not only record mouseclicks and keystrokes when recording video/GIF, but also audio and 2nd video (webcam!)

I never knew I needed a better screenshot tool, but the annotation and workflow improvements mean I find myself oddly enjoying taking screenshots.

CleanShot X is amazing. Such a beautifully crafted mac app, nails so many real-life use-cases overlooked by the default screenshot tool.

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.

I'm so happy to have found Cleanshot X. The best designed screenshot, annotation, video recording app for Mac. Paid, but absolutely worth it. Well done!

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!

CleanShot is THE BEST! It’s an integral part of my workflow, so seamless. I especially love the screencapture and scrolling capture. So freaking useful.

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,

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.

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.
