Editors' review

Excellent screen capture apps aren't hard to come by, but excellent free ones are. With sophisticated features at no cost, it's hard to reach higher than Gadwin PrintScreen. An attractive, easily navigated interface opens up a customization wonderland for users to decide default settings for shortcut key associations, capture preferences, and output.

For our purposes, the clicking and dragging regions is the clear choice. Misjudge your region's dimensions and Gadwin PrintScreen lets you readjust them without having to start over, something many commercial competitors don't do. Setting the app to automatically open each screen capture in your favorite viewer or editor makes up for the program's lack of built-in image editor, still achieving a seamless screen capture experience from start to finish that grabs and delivers shots just where you want them.

    "A piece of you know what"

    September 12, 2014   |   By dolarmity

    Version: Gadwin PrintScreen 5.3.1

    Pros

    not one to be found

    Cons

    There isn't enough space to describe. Got a new Windows 8 computer and downloaded the print/screen program hoping to have what I had on my old
    computer. Big mistake. The "new and improve" came from some demented
    mind that obviously had not used the earlier version.
    I was difficult to just "click" and take a picture like before, after you "took" the picture
    the nightmare started, could not find where the file went (if anywhere).
    The one that "developed" this nightmare should be fired along with the one that
    approved it. I will try to get a new download of an earlier version.

    Summary

    If you want to know what: if ain't broken don't fix it, means, just download this
    masterpiece.

    "TERRIBLE now"

    August 13, 2014   |   By photopest

    Version: Gadwin PrintScreen 5.3.1

    Pros

    It works is best I can say

    Cons

    Had previous version, worked great, flexible. New version allows only PNG file save. Took forever to find where it saved the grab. It wasn't broke and didn't need fixing.

    Summary

    Older version way better

    Great features,used to work fine.

    Cons

    Summary

    Was well made. Older version was perfect, newer ones buggy. Get something esle.

    "do NOT buy the Pro version"

    July 18, 2014   |   By tellesadilson

    Version: Gadwin PrintScreen 5.3.1

    Pros

    - easy to use
    - very productive for people who needs to take a lot of printscreens

    Cons

    - Some small bugs (floating widget appears sometimes even if it is configured to not appear)
    - The Professional version has no support. Sent a couple of emails 20 days ago and opened some tickets in their support area and I never received an answer. Use the free version, but DO NOT BUY the Professional version. It not worth it.

    Summary

    Overall the software is good, but this company does not respect their customers.
    If they only answered their emails I would indicate this for everyone, but if you do now want to be ignored, do NOT buy software from Gadwin company.
