Command+Shift+3/4. How many times we all use that feature on Macs. In case you are wondering what that is, how about trying it out? Yes, it takes a screenshot and dumps it on the desktop of your Mac. You can run a script and change the destination of the screenshots though in case you find the clutter too much. However, despite this it could be a minor annoyance to store all the screenshots on your desktop or locally on the system in case you are struggling for precious space on the hard drive. It is always a good idea to dump these files away automatically without you having to make any special effort.
GrabBox 2 does exactly this. The application is a must have, if you are in the habit of taking loads of screenshots on your Mac. It is available for free and barely takes 3.2 MB on hard disk which sure is only a fraction of space that all the screenshots might be taking on your disk. The application is probably one of the simplest in the way it works. You download the application and install it. It then lives on the menu bar of the Mac and is active as long as it is there. When you use the app for the very first time, you have to enter in your dropbox credentials where the screenshots will be uploaded.
It is worth noting that only the screenshots taken with the standard Mac command would be uploaded and in case you have a third party app, say the likes of PopShot to take screenshots, they would remain in the designated folders. You can turn the device of the application on or off directly from where it lives on the Menubar. There is hardly any customisations available on the application and frankly speaking, they are least bit required. The app does what it needs to, and that is, the moment you take a screenshot, automatically uploads it to your dropbox and deletes it from the local drive. We do wish there was a way to or at least an option to instruct the app not to delete the screenshots locally for a specific event interval, but sadly there is none yet.
Apart from that minor annoyance, the application works brilliantly and we had no trouble with it. It sits in the background so you barely notice its existence as it quietly goes about its business.
GrabBox 2 is available to download for free from here. The best thing about the app is the fact that there is absolutely no ads within the app either.
