One of the most polished screenshot + annotation tool

As long as I am working within a browser, this is a must have productivity tool. I can literally save hours everyday buy annotating screenshots instead of typing instructions for my team.

Pros

I really like the way this tool can work with PDFs. This is a new thing. Also, it can create a history trail for all the edits to screenshots, which comes in handy sometimes if I need to rework annotations. Also, I like the way I can arrange the images in my cloud for different groups of people and access levels.

Cons

I would really love to see it as an independent app instead of a browser extension. Being ties to a browser is really restrictive for sich a great app.

Reasons for Choosing Markup Hero

Markuphero UI/UX is a lot better. I like the features better too.

Reasons for Switching to Markup Hero

The windows version of cloudapp has a very ugly and buggy text annotation tool. Markuphero is much nicer.

Future of Screenshots!!

Pros

1. Universal annotations tool to annotate images, screenshots, URL's, PDF's, Docs, Spreadsheets, Slides, etc. 2. Annotations you make using Markup Hero are not usual annotations, these annotations are layered and editable, meaning that annotation can be edited even after sharing it (link will remain the same but image will get updated). In other words, Markup Hero has the capability for share once but edit repeatedly and go back repeatedly. 3. Layered annotations open all possibilities for real-time collaborative editing. 4. Bloat free editing experience!! You get only the tools that are required and useful. No useless features that are used once in a blue moon. 5. I haven't tried Slack integration but Markup Hero is available as a Drive Add-on and can be installed from the Google Workspace Marketplace. This means Markup Hero can be used directly from Google Drive to create and edit files. This also means that just one click and you are annotating any Google Doc, Google Sheet, Google Slide.

Cons

1. No custom hotkeys 2. No scrolling screenshots 3. No multi-select for annotation objects 4. No custom branding, no custom domain. 5. Tags instead of folders All mentioned stuff is also present in their roadmap. Hopefully, they will release these features soon.

Thx for feedback! On your comments: 1) releasing in a few days. 2) on roadmap, probably early next year. 3) on roadmap, hopefully by Jan. 4) building now, released by Jan. On the Tags vs. Folders, would love more feedback here as we're trying to decide optimal implementation. Would love to see comments on that roadmap item.

Quick and easy screenshot annotations

Overall, easy to use, easy to start, and easy to finish my work effectively. That's what stands out about this tool. While I do feel there are better tools that provide more features, I can't deny that the results are quick to the point markups that do the job decent. Much is still to be desired, but the approach is in the an effective direction. After all, tools meant to increase productivity should do exactly that, which Markuphero.io does. Free trial was decent enough to gauge the use of this tool so I suggest you at least check it out to see if it works for your workflow.

Pros

Ease of use and deployment. It was easy to get started and just dive in. I liked the desktop/mobile and the pdf/url options. Simple and easy markup tools. The ability to share or download instantly makes it easy to get your edits out and move on with your work.

Cons

Load time and UX was a little behind the easy and simplicity of the UI. Also could use a little more consideration to other file types and organization structure of those files. Different type of annotation tools could help tell different stories or match the nature of the project that's being worked on, such as tool type like markups that better pinpoint areas. Also could use some off-canvas workspace to expand and avoid covering up areas while marking up screenshots.

Reasons for Choosing Markup Hero

Ease of use, a nice dashboard to manage all of my screenshot markups, quick to get started. Works well for mobile and desktop website design annotations and gives you the option to use a URL.

Great feedback. Yes, the off-canvas is a must for me too. The crop tool we're releasing this month will let you crop and expand the canvas. Stay tuned!

Simple & Lightweight Annotation Tool

It's a nifty tool to get create quick screenshot of websites and get immediate feedback from our clients. Apart from images, you can use the tool for annoting pdfs as well. It's a pretty simple / slick markup annotation tool to give / get immediate feedback from team members/ stake holders / clients. We are using it to get immediate realtime feedback from our clients on various design components that we create for their website.

Pros

There is no learning curve whatsoever to use the tool . Person just needs to enter url of the website, upload image/pdf and he/she can straightaway proceed to add markup/ annotation to the image. It has integration with Google Drive & Slack. So once markup is done, you can straightaway share the annotation with your colleagues on your slack channel. The tool is improving daily and I can see blur feature, add image on top of the the markup. I have used quite a lot of tools, but this is the one tool which lets you add image on top of your annoation. It's pretty helpful to show my team members what exactly I want the page to be replaced with. The simplicity of the tool to add markups to your screenshot is worth making it a good tool.

Cons

There are few things which are not quite yet ready on markup hero especially when you are using Insert from url option to create screenshot. I noticed if you have an active popup on the website or animations active on the site , the exact screenshot rendered by the tool are not close to the real site. There is always a workaround to upload the actual image of the website and start with annotation - but I really hope that in future versions it is taken care off. Also hope they introduce steps features on the screenshot along , so that when I try to use the screenshot to onboard a new users or explain process to end user - he/she knows exactly different steps they need to follow using the screenshot.

The lightweight handy software I'd like use daily

No doubt, Markup Hero will soon become my new favorite screenshot capture software for my daily use. I feel good to use it right now.

Pros

Markup Hero can be used cross-devices as a web-app based that save my all screenshot on the cloud instead of the local storage. The whole process from taking a screenshot to share is smoothly and super fast. Not many tools can serve me like that and I like it at the beginning. This UX is important for me because I will use it daily.

Cons

I always feel the annotation tools are too basic. I love having curved arrow besides straight arrows only. I hope a spotlight frame to highlight the object of the screenshot as well. I'm too looking forward to seeing the email notification once the screenshot viewed by link shares.

Response from Markup Hero

Replied November 2020

Great feedback. Curved arrow is on the roadmap and coming soon https://roadmap.markuphero.com. The spotlight idea is a good one, would love to get more feedback on that. Please add to roadmap for voting if you don't mind. And notifications are coming as future part of teams release. Teams are coming out in a month or so.
