A simple screen capturing tool has become an essential one for all the PC users. Though we have a screen capturing tool in Windows by default, the features aren’t enough for most of the users. Also, we have many free applications in the Internet with premium quality. So, people who take screenshots frequently, needs a handy screen capturing tool. Previously, I wrote about Nimbus, a chrome extension to take screenshots on your browser. Today I’ve come with a new application called “TinyTake“, which helps you to take screenshots and screencast on your Windows machine. Here’s how it works.
TinyTake is a free application for Windows, which lets you quickly take screenshots and do basic annotations on the same application. You can download the app using the link at the end of this post. The app needs minimum 4GB of RAM for smooth performance. Once you complete the installation, the app will be available on your system tray. Initially, it doesn’t need any registration to take the screenshots, but to share with other applications, you need to create an account on Mangoapps’s website. All the actions in the app can be performed through command shortcuts.
After you take a screenshot, the application will take you to the edit window. There you can do some basic stuffs like crop, adding text, rotate, highlight a specific area, etc. If you have registered for the app in MangoApps, you can share, download and upload the edited image right from the application. Another important option in the application is, you can record videos on your PC. The videos will be recorded in MP4 format and it can be recorded to the maximum of five minutes. The video can either be a screencast or recorded from your web cam.
The recorded video file can be quickly saved to desktop. If you want to share or upload the video, it can be done right from the application. Customizing options and the instructions to use the app will be available in the application settings. TinyTake is very simple and easy to understand. If you are using the default Snipping Tool to take screenshots and MS Paint to edit it, TinyTake is worth giving a try. Share your views about the app in the comments.
