Screen capture applications are much more than utilities that allow us to capture, annotate and share parts of our computer's screen but, if properly included into our workflow, they can quickly become efficient communications tools.
With a rather suggestive name, –shots is a simplistic and unpretentious, Electron-based piece of software that allows you to capture screenshots, as well as edit and annotate them.
Minimalist screen capturing app that lives in the taskbar
The application can be deployed on your computer with practically no effort on your behalf, thanks to a hands-off installer that, once launched, takes care of every step of the process by itself.
Right off the bat, just to lower misguided expectations, it must be said that it is no premium screen capturing tool. Subsequent to its installation process, the app makes its presence known by integrating with your computer's taskbar.
Capture and lightly edit your screenshots with the help of this tool
From this point onward, you can start capturing screenshots either from its simple taskbar menu or via CTRL + N hotkey. Once captured, your screenshot will be presented tucked within a non-impressive main window.
Either from the app's menubar or from its contextual menu, you can easily take new screenshots, crop and save the current one, as well as make use of a pen and add arrows and rectangular shapes.
It is worth mentioning that the application also bundles a set of emoji that can be used to enhance your screenshots.
Decent little app for screen capture that would surely do with a few more features
By now, it is quite clear that there is a ton of room for improvement with this app, as even other, free, screen capturing apps out there outperform it in every tangible way.
All in all, if you want a no-frills software solution for capturing screenshots, then you might as well give –shots a quick try and see what's what.
