This week's chosen Application: Cleanshot for Mac
The Cleanshot app is an alternative to the screenshot defaults provided by the Mac OS. It offers more functionality like annotations, screen recording, gif creation and more. It is indeed a versatile tool for many designers. We use cleanshot extensively here at Xperian to run our quick reviews and document anything.
Cleanshot replaces the existing Macbook's screenshot shortcuts (Cmd+Shift+3/4/5) and functionality. Along with this, they also introduce the tool with a all-in-one command so they can explore all of its amazing features in one shot.
