Inspiration for a new app can come from many places, but useful utilities usually combine a few features that many of us use, but enclose them within a single app. Here’s a perfect example. What do you get when you mashup a paint and drawing app with a screen capture app? You get Paint + Snap, the app that lets you capture a screenshot and edit the image. Or, just edit an image with a modest 21st century version of MacPaint.
The combination of a paint and drawing app with the option to take a screenshot is actually useful.
Paint + Snap feels a bit like Microsoft’s MS Paint, which is likely to be familiar to some Mac users. It has drawing tools– brushes, bucket, shapes, text options– so you can edit almost any typical Mac image file.
Crop, resize, add elements or annotations.
That’s where the screenshot option comes in. Paint + Snap can capture the Mac’s screen as an image, and make it available for all the drawing and paint tools– from annotation to cropping and editing.
There’s little in Paint + Snap that’s remotely more valuable than the combination of drawing an image combined with annotating a screenshot or image. But it’s a good value at 99-cents.
