Awesome Screenshot Comments

A good app gone sour

Comment by suebrett
about Awesome Screenshot Nov 2016

I've used Awesome Screenshot for years. I particularly liked that it would snap an entire website page beyond the visible screen (though some shots were spoiled by repeating bars and other plugin items). It just worked for me, even though it was a bit buggy.

Recently though, it's been flagged up as dangerous malware by MacBooster (a Mac maintenance app). From what I can make out, it's got some pretty intrusive code under the bonnet ...and also it's no longer supported.

I can't ignore that. So I've switched to using Droplr, but there are plenty of other options, such as Evernote clipper.

If you're not technically minded or you don't regularly monitor your computer for malware, be aware that this might not be your best choice.
