Just a PSA for Those Who Use This Guy's Software -2 Helpful

Negative Comment by gammafication
about ShareX Jun 2016

The guy outright denies a feature I requested because he thinks that "he should draw a line somewhere". Bullshit excuse; I wouldn't be surprised if he c-ould code the setting in under 30 minutes. Then he proceeds to rub it in my face that he had the feature in before.

Not going to be using this **'s software anymore.

No linux version

Comment by blackflaggeek
about ShareX Jun 2014

there is no linux version for this application and all other alternatives on linux are not even close to ease of use and feature set. for now my recommendation is screencloud for linux users.


More options is not always better

Comment by wrygiel
about ShareX and Greenshot Feb 2014

ShareX seems to be a port of Greenshot. It has more options than Greenshot. However, Greenshot just feels much more "solid" when it comes to user experience. If Greenshot's options are enough for you, I would recommend Greenshot.

It is also quite true what one of the other commenters had said - the developers of ShareX seem to be very defensive when it comes to bug reports and feature requests.


Has potential, but...

Comment by DiskCrasher
about ShareX and Greenshot Nov 2013

The developers don't like bug reports or suggestions, it makes them defensive. (Not sure why they bothered making it open source.) And documentation is nil. Think I'll switch to Greenshot.


ScreenCloud, the best until moment

So much customization:
- Your choice of hosting services.
- Support account logins.
- Custom hotkeys.
