Do you take lots of screenshots?

Do you often find yourself retyping text that's stuck inside an image? Have you ever spent hours trying to find something where you know you sent someone a screenshot of it a while back?

Screenotate is an app for macOS and Windows that might help you with your screenshots. Every time you take a screenshot, Screenotate steps in to recognize and save the text inside (using Optical Character Recognition), along with the URL and the title of the place where you took the screenshot (where possible).

And because Screenotate does all this automatically, you don't need to learn anything new to use it! Once you install Screenotate, you can keep taking screenshots the same way you always have – one keyboard shortcut and drag – only now, they'll be tagged with all this extra information, so you can search them later, and know where they're from, and paste their text into other places.

Screenotate is smart, terrific, and indispensable — it's exactly how screen capture should have worked all along.

Instabuy, I'd actually been looking for something like this for a long time.

In just a few weeks, Screenotate has saved me literally hours of retyping. It is fast, accurate, and easy to use. You would be nuts to retype any text from screen. You can even use your computer camera to capture text for quick OCR instead of a scanner.
