      "mostly adequate"

      December 22, 2013   |   By t045t

      Version: InstantShot 2.6b

      Pros

      works with osx mavericks

      Cons

      watch out for spam installer.

      Summary

      kind of quirky. i had to install cnet downloader to get it and that wanted to install a lot of junk and make changes to my preferences. yuck. if you have to do this be sure to click custom install and uncheck all of these "options". first time i used it i couldn't go back to other apps, even a finder window, but since i was doing a backup and restart anyway it turned out okay. i liked 2.5 so i hope they fix these quirks and ensure it's really stable with mavericks before a final release

      "Great Tool!"

      July 18, 2009   |   By tjamison

      Version: InstantShot! 2.5

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      I've been using InstantShot! for about 1.5 years and it has become my favorite screenshot tool. I don't even use the other ones i've downloaded anymore. Just too convenient to use from the menubar.

      "Excellent program -- a great replacement for..."

      Version: InstantShot! 2.3

      Summary

      ...out-of-development screencap tools
      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      This program has a nice combination of customization and simplicity of features! I was a Freesnap user, and I've been trying all sorts of screencap tools to replace it. They all have other priorities, like resizing or uploading via FTP. This program does one thing really well. Also, since it launched a few months ago, the developer has really listened to suggestions for improvements, like adding shortcut keys for actions.

      "Easy to use and very cusomizable"

      December 26, 2006   |   By a_vassalino

      Version: InstantShot! 2.0

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      As the product description states: can choose "save to" format, quality level of saved image, save location, startup at login, and much more.

      Simple, straightforward, very nicely done, IMHO. The Apple keyboard command save-image function is pretty simple, but now saves to PNG only. I had used SnapNDrag a lot also; a nice alternative, but this is even simpler and nicer to use than SnapNDrag, again IMHO.

      I like being able to do everything from drop-down menu from menubar.

      (using on iMac G5, 10.4.8)

      "Does what it says it does"

      December 26, 2006   |   By Cattus Thraex

      Version: InstantShot! 2.0

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      Similar to SnapNDrag, and presumably just as good as that. Unlike SnapNDrag, runs in tiger only, SnapNDrag works with Panther as well.
