Monosnap is a handy application that allows you to capture screenshots, edit and then upload them to online locations to share with whomever you want. It also enables you to record the desktop activity to standalone video files (MP4). Therefore, it can also be used to create short tutorials, presentations, demonstrations and so on.

Actually, the latest version for this tool that I reviewed hasn't changed so much. The most important improvement is that now this tool can also capture scenes from your games. A separate “Monosnap for Games” tool is installed altogether with Monosnap, and it can quickly take full screen snapshots of your games, while you play them, just by pressing the F11 key. The tool supports almost any kind of games, regardless of whether it’s the one that uses DirectX 9 or newer, OpenGL.

Another remarkable change is that now you can customize the file names for the saved screenshots, using handy file name templates.

As for the rest, Monosnap remains the same powerful and easy-to-use screen capture tool that provides you with all the features that you might ever need from such a tool. There are customizable hotkeys, plenty of editing functions, numerous uploading options, and so on. Unfortunately, it still can supports only two output image formats: PNG and JPEG.

In conclusion, since it’s also completely free, Monosnap continues to be one of the most attractive choices for when you’re looking for a reliable, feature-rich and simple-to-use screen capture solution.
