Screenpresso is a feature-rich and powerful tool that you can use to take screenshots and record important things on your screen. It possesses a lot of advanced features to replace the built-in snipping tool. You can use this tool to capture the entire or specific region of a screen. It also features an auto-scroll feature to screenshot a long webpage. Moreover, it comes with an advanced built-in image editor with different shapes and tools to annotate the screenshot. The screenshots and recordings can be shared through different platforms or mediums.
Supported Devices and Price
The only drawback with Screenpresso is the lack of support for macOS and smartphone platforms. Currently, Screenpresso is only available for Windows computers. The dedicated app can be downloaded officially from the official website of Screenpresso (screenpresso.com). On PC’s and laptops, you can download this tool as an extension on the Chrome browser.
In terms of pricing, Screenpresso is available in three forms: Free, Pro, and Enterprise. The pro version costs $29.99/user, and the enterprise version costs $2,190/unlimited users. The free version is more than handy to take screenshots and record screen. However, the premium version is essential when you want additional features like HD video capture, Android capture, document generator, and more.
