Just getting started

Pros

Quickly take and edit screenshots for sharing, and documenting crucial SOP's and processes throughout our business.

Cons

Nothing that would prevent me from recommending it, but can be slightly confusing for first time users. Though it does not take many tries to get acclimated to it.

Great for OSX, problems with my Windows Setup

Pros

Super easy to grab a screenshot, annotate it and share it.

Cons

Does not work with my Windows install. It does not like my multiple monitors (I have 8 monitors) and crashes when trying to take a screen shot. Support has been unable to resolve this for over a year.

Droplr is always with me,when debugging.

I use Droplr to describe software bugs.Using screenshots and videos to describe errors I notice on a piece of software is easier to understand for my team members,as against attempting to explain via writing or verbal words alone.

Pros

I use Droplr regularly to provide screen-shots of software ,while trying to debug a piece of software program.
Droplr provides me with graphical pointers such as arrows ,which I introduce into my screenshots to help my team better understand what complaint I am trying to pass across with my screenshot.
I also use Droplr to create short videos of my web flow experience ,to outline my navigation movement on a website.

Cons

There are times when I am sent a Droplr link and it shows me error 404. While this is mostly due to a server issue on the part of Droplr,it can be frustrating when I am trying to get things done very fast.

So great for prototypes

Pros

I loved sending screen shots to people for some feedback on different graphics I've created. I love how when you take a screen shot, it automatically creates a link for it and copies it to your clipboard. I think it's genius how easy it is to share

Cons

Sometimes it doesn't open when you login to your computer, and also the free version can be quite a tease! I would love some functionality still with the free version.

Droplr must embrace the Linux OS.

Droplr makes it easier to share contents with my colleagues at the workplace.It has also allowed me effortlessly manage and save my files at work.

Pros

I like that Droplr is available to be used on both my Windows and Mac OS devices.I like the ease with which I am able to take screenshots,annotate it and share with my colleagues at the workplace.I like the Droplr chrome extension and I love using it to access my Droplr since Chrome is my favorite web browser.

Cons

Droplr does not support the Linux operating systems,therefore restricting me to using Droplr on just Windows and MAC.

Droplr: An Excellent Choice for Easy Link Creation and Shortening

Droplr really is very excellent, and you can't go wrong with it. I'm also a fan of CloudApp, but —especially if you're interested in creating readily-shareable, linked Markdown files—then Droplr becomes a better choice. You might consider both, and be on the lookout for occasional discounts or "lifetime" offerings from either one.

Pros

I have reviewed CloudApp, too—and I've given that similar software a slight edge—but Droplr I very capable, and in some ways I like it better!

Cons

Free plan is very restrictive—just 10 drops a month with 1GB of total storage. You'll like Droplr enough that you will outgrow those parameters almost immediately.

Great tool for screenrecording

Our how-to tutorials look great with the gifs made with Droplr instead if simple screenshots.

Pros

I use Droplr every time I need to make a gif recording a screen and it works great! The gifs are of high quality, the program is easy-to-use, so I'm totally satisfied.

Cons

Sometimes it crashes just after the recording is finished, and the recording is not saved so I need to re-do.

Handy Screenshot sharing tool

Pros

I like that this allows me to take a screenshot and share a url really quickly. Also enjoy that we can create gifs and screencasts as well with it

Cons

Sometimes it jams up and the quality of the recording is very fuzzy, I've also found whenever doing video clips/recordings, it can cause your computer to overheat in some cases

My experience with Droplr has been good. It's a convenient way to share files.

Pros

Pretty much how they promote it is accurate... it's allows you to share files easily and conveniently, and the file will be removed from their servers after an allotted amount of time. In both work and play, many times I'll need to share something as almost a temporary measure: "Look at this screenshot." It's not something that needs to be kept forever. Usually after the client sees it, we discuss it, and move on with the project. There's no need to keep it. You CAN keep it, but by default it will go away soon enough. No bulky servers to periodically clean to purge files that were meant to be shared, reviewed, and discarded.

Cons

The mark-up tool, where you can annotate uploaded files, could probably be improve a bit more in terms of options and ease of annotating. It's a very helpful part of the software, so improvements to this are would make a good idea even better.

Perfect

Pros

the best part is that links shared can be saved and used at a later date, it is also very user friendly

Cons

the customer support needs more improvement, especially when you are purchasing the software, it takes too much time for support to get back to you.

My favorite screenshot, screencast capture and sharing tool

The ability to quickly capture, annotate, and share what I see on the screen helps me communicate more effectively with my team and with customers.

Pros

Capturing screenshots and screen recordings is fast, reliable, and easy. Having the ability to organize these screenshots into groups and share the grouped shots with colleagues is a great way to share inspiration, ideas, and revisions. There are many options regarding privacy and even the ability to have a custom domain/url for sharing these images.

Cons

While the capture interface is great, the web portion can be challenging. Things like privacy controls are not well described in the interface.

Honest, trustworthy group of people who care for your files.

Ease of use. It made uploading files easier than before. It made my whole workflow almost seem seamless (no pun intended).

Pros

Has an OS X menubar icon and easy functionality. Works when I need it to, and flows well with my workflow. I don't have to leave an app to open this one - it simply exists in my menubar and copies directly to my clipboard.

Cons

It seems to ever-so-slighty be getting paywalled. When I first used it, the free tier was enough, now the free tier is almost as good as gone. There's no benefit to pay for something like this when competitors offer more with a few more obstacles to overcome.

Very good overall but lucking major functionalities

Pros

Very easy to use and very fast.
It's worth it's money especially now that the price for Pro was lowered .
Very light and never crashes or take time like other software that need their time.

Cons

1. For a paying service (especially when it wasper month), the support responds to you in 2-4 days, to a chat support not ticket.
2. The one thing that does not make sense at all is that they've build all this service and it does not include a full screen shortcut like the one Mac OS have by default (Shift-Command-4). When you take hundred of screenshots everyday that is a must.
3. If you take a screenshot and save it on your finder as a file and than drag and drop that on to Jira it shows an unsupported file. Jira does not recognise that. for dev teams that use Jira is unusable. And I know that they have a Jira connector, but when you paste a droplr url on the Jira comment section it does not get populated, you still need to open the link.
4. No iPhone app.

My go-to platform for sharing files and screenshots

Pros

Very easy to use. Receivers don't have to have a login to view screenshots. Can use it for zip files as well.

Cons

The mac client seems to log me out once every couple weeks. Not a big deal as logging back in only takes a couple clicks.

Droplr has been my default screenshot app for over 5 years

Pros

Very simple workflow: you press a shortcut, select an area on the screen and get a link in your clipboard. Or, if you want, you press another shortcut and draw extra info on your screenshot.
A lot of my friends are using Dropbox for this, but I hate how heavy is the dropbox web page when you click the link. I think it even tries to convince you to install the Dropbox app, which is extremely annoying.
Also, love the screencast feature, use it all the time.

Cons

It feels like the app became a bit more buggy in recent days. In particular, uploading a screencast sometimes crashes the app, and there are few annoying bugs in the drawing editor.

Great App, Terrible Customer Service

None any more, terrible customer service

Pros

App over all is great, works as advertised. Sharing info in a secure way is a great way to collaborate.

Cons

got this on a promo, former employee assured me this was a lifetime account, she is no longer with the company, and now one of the cust support rep was telling me it is not lifetime. Horrible customer service.

Missing iOS App

Pros

I have a life time subscription, which means I am not paying monthly for a service that removed the primary reason I paid for it.

Cons

They removed the iOS app and have not said when they are planning on releasing a new one. Therefore this is useless.

The features are exactly what I need to boost my productivity.

Pros

The availability of the app in my MacOS and my iOS has enable me to work seamlessly anywhere and anytime.

Cons

Sometimes the MacOS app is heavy when I run it for screen recording. But from the last few updates I think it is getting better. So I'm hoping that it will be lighter and faster in the next update.

Super easy way to screeenshot, markup, share - and archive.

Sharing content with coworkers

Pros

Easy shortcuts I never forget, never hunt and peck. Auto copies URL to clipboard. Pretty easy mark up. Easy to find old shots.

Cons

Mark up tool could be better - can't change text size - hard to delete or edit what you've added. But it is nice and simple.
