    "I find Skitch to be a very useful tool. It's easy enough to take a screenshot, but I particularly like how easy it is to interact with the screenshots. I'm able to quickly add notes to the image as reminders for myself or information for others. I really enjoy this app!"

    "I am interested in creating online content, so I was looking for some screen capture software which worked on Mac OS X. A friend recommended ScreenFlow, which is an editing and screen recording software. Luckily they had a trial version to test out prior to purchasing a full license which has a price tag of $129.00. I was not really impressed with the functionality of this software, especially when there are other products that similar things which are free like OBS. Not worth the money in my opinion."

    "This information is awesome. Monosnap allows me to capture any part of my screen with ease. With Monosnap I can not only capture the full screen but I can also get only part of the screen. It also allows me to draw on it and capture only the parts that I want. This was totally helpful information."

    "Tried it and deleted it. I really don't see where this serves any purpose other than to take up space. A classic example of trying to build a better mousetrap when you have a perfectly good one already. If is isn't broke, don't mess with it."
