For folks like me - who needs to take screenshot every now and then and share with colleagues or friends - Windows screen capture has been the usual choice. While using Windows screen capture, we waste valuable time and energy as it requires over half-a-dozen steps (taking screenshots, cropping, saving etc.) to complete the process. Wanna alternative for Windows screen capture that saves your time, here comes TinyTake which lets you to capture images and videos of your computer screen, add comments and share them with others in minutes. TinyTake is built by MangoApps and it works on Windows XP, Windows 7 or 8 desktops, and requires a minimum of 4GB RAM.How does it work?
TinyTake makes the entire process right from capturing screenshots to share it in easy three steps:
- Capture. You can designate hotkeys for region and full screen/window capture.
- Add Annotations. You don’t have to paste your capture into any additional editing software. You can create callouts, add shapes and text all from the capture interface toolbar.
- Once ready to share, one click and you can upload the link to or copy to your clipboard. Your captures can easily be emailed, copied, uploaded to your TinyTake account, or even printed right from the same image window you edit in.
Speaking about thoughts behind TinyTake, Vishwa Malhotra, co-founder and CTO said, “Within companies, there should be more importance placed on giving employees better tools to take screen captures, so that they can support and give context to their written communication. Many of us have become reliant on systems like Windows screen capture process that make it inefficient and hard to share screen captures at work. However, with TinyTake we can weed out waste of valuable time and energy or old methodology.“
With team size of 70 employees, across the US and India, MangoApps has been so far bootstrapped venture. TinyTake is a cost effective software because it’s free to download. The startup gives another striking feature - you don’t have to use third party image storage as it gives you 1 GB per user with a free basic account. However, if you require more storage space you can upgrade your account with MangoApps suite.
Founded by Anup Kejriwal, Vishwa Malhotra and Christina Kejriwal, TinyTake competes head-on-head with Windows native function -’PrntScr’. When asked about traction Malhotra said “It’s too early to comment on this since it was only released few weeks back.” The company also plans to release a premium version of TinyTake. In future, MangoApps will continue to enhance experience with new modules like CRM, workflows, etc. Besides TinyTake, MangoApps is launching What’s App like application called Office Chat by October this year.
