Eating Crow on CleanShot X 4.5

For so long, I resisted CleanShot X, the screenshot replacement tool. I told myself that I was such a badass with the built-in screenshot tools that I didn’t need an app, even though everyone kept telling me how they loved CleanShot and it is fairly priced and available through Setapp, making it effectively free for me.

And yet, I still resisted.

About six months ago, I begrudgingly installed CleanShot X and now I can’t imagine life without it. The latest update (version 4.5) adds even more, with the ability to add background images to your screenshots, smart cropping, and capture history. What a great app. Here’s CleanShot’s video showing the latest updates.

As part of my ongoing task manager survey, there’s a new simple task list / focus app called Bento and I’m trying it out. The app is pretty and functional so long as your task list isn’t too big or complex. Still, I dig the way they got the little details right and can see a lot of people using Bento. Here’s an app walkthrough and discussion… This is a post for MacSparky Labs Level 3 (Early Access) and Level 2 (Backstage) Members only. Care to join? Or perhaps do you need to sign in?
