Editors' Review


Snapz Pro X for Mac is a capture utility for Mac OS X. It is available from several download sites, but with a purchase price of $69 if you want to upgrade after using the free trial. Snapz Pro X for Mac installs cleanly and quickly.

More than a simple screenshot utility, Snapz Pro X for Mac lets you capture anything that appears on your screen either a still images or as a movie in QuickTime format. Snapz Pro X for Mac can capture full-screen or a smaller portion, and provides a simple way to make product demos, tutorial videos, and other movie-based narratives. Preference dialogs let you set the frame rate you want, as well as whether audio is captured with video, and special abilities such as following the cursor or panning smoothly to new locations. Using a default codec of H.264, the video produced by Snapz Pro X for Mac is about as good as anything we've seen from much more expensive packages on the Mac. There's a live preview window option that lets you see what is being recorded.

We used Snapz Pro X for Mac for a week and really got to like its capabilities. While not an inexpensive app it does have features that we've spent a lot more for in larger video production software packages. While you won't want to spend $69 for a simple static screen capture utility, Snapz Pro X for Mac actually looks like a bargain when you add in all the capabilities it offers.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Snapz Pro X for Mac 2.5.1.

"Very Good product, No Customer Support"

March 23, 2015  |  By wrbtu

 |  Version: Snapz Pro X 2.5.4


?simple to use
?saves files in various formats, like tiff & jpeg
?easy naming of captured images


?apparently, there is no longer any customer support
?cannot capture some screen images (e.g., LaunchPad, which fades as Snapz is invoked)


About a month ago, I tried to contact Customer Support, & I received an automated email response, telling me that I'd hear from them "soon". After not hearing from them for 9 days, I sent a follow-up email, but 18 days later, still no response. I've been using Snapz for 15 years, & bought other products from this company, but their Customer Service leaves everything to be desired, therefore my 3* rating.

"Does not work total scam"

February 07, 2015  |  By thehugmonster

 |  Version: Snapz Pro X 2.5.4


there literally are none, the program does not work at all


the program itself costs $69 and does nothing! its crashes the computer when you try to make a movie file, you cannot have any audio mic or mac audio, the hot key only does snapshots, and there is no preference panel. the instructions do not apply to the product at all and costumer support won;t even pick up the phone
