Notice a hilarious picture on a website? A typo in headline that turns the meaning on its head? Odds are corrections will be made before you get a chance to share the link on your social network on blog. Instead what you want to do is take a quick screenshot, upload it on the web for posterity and then share it anywhere you want.
Now there are several great apps for taking screen shots. Many of them, like Screengrab, work inside a browser and even allow you to edit your pictures. Others, like TInyGrab, allow you to upload these images to the web for instant sharing. Screencatch, a tiny app we feature this week, allows you to do both reasonably well.
The app, that usually stays in your toolbar till you need it, takes screen shots, allows you to crop it and then upload to the web. Just a few clicks are all you need. It is simple, fast, free and easy to learn. For a quick demo of Screencatch see this week’s episode of the Playstream tutorial series.
