Droplr Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about Droplr's features:

Rick Powell

Amazing screenshot tool with powerful integrations

2019-04-08

I was pleasantly surprised by the new version of droplr. Drag and drop integration with major productivity apps is not only a killer feature, it's also fun to do!

Pros

I used to use Google Keep to store images that could then be easily imported into Google Docs, my primary writing tool.

Cons

Drops in free version are automatically deleted after 30 days.

Fast uploading, sharing, screen recording & screenshots

2020-03-19

Another great feature – surprisingly not promoted heavily – is the ability to drag and drop or upload images to create mood boards.

Pros

The ease and speed of uploading a file, getting an instant short link and sharing it safely with anyone anywhere.

Cons

Nothing comes to mind that's missing. Droplr is one of those apps that works so well and is so intuitive to use, you don't even think about it.

My favorite screenshot, screencast capture and sharing tool

2018-06-05

The ability to quickly capture, annotate, and share what I see on the screen helps me communicate more effectively with my team and with customers.

Pros

Capturing screenshots and screen recordings is fast, reliable, and easy. Having the ability to organize these screenshots into groups and share the grouped shots with colleagues is a great way to share inspiration, ideas, and revisions.

Cons

Things like privacy controls are not well described in the interface.

I cannot speak highly enough about this tool; I've been using this since right after launch!

2018-03-07

Easy sharing of files and metrics about when and how often a share was viewed.

Pros

I need to share a link with a colleague or friend then I just drag and drop onto the taskbar icon or use a handy keyboard shortcut.

Cons

Honestly, the upgrade process used to be a bit clunky in the earlier versions, however, since that has been reworked I cannot find any flaws.

I've been a paying subscriber for many years, that says it all really!

2018-03-01

Pros

The speed of being able to create Drops, ease of use, the ability to draw on Drops and access Drops across all my devices,

Cons

There's no shortcut in the menu to export a screenshot Drop, ie. I have to open the Drop and then right-click and save it to my desktop.

Droplr became my go-to 1-1 individual video greeting tool

2019-03-08

Overall, Droplr has become part of my normal workflow. I share pictures and files regularly and best of all, I can depend on it.

Pros

I like the most that it's cross-platform and that it practically functions as a video-sharing tool for me as well.

Cons

The ios app and laptop apps are a bit inconsistent. so far I have found no way to send a link to a file with the password included on the ios app in one step; this works automatically like this on the mac app.

Honest, trustworthy group of people who care for your files.

2018-05-14

It made uploading files easier than before.

Pros

Works when I need it to, and flows well with my workflow. I don't have to leave an app to open this one - it simply exists in my menubar and copies directly to my clipboard.

Cons

It seems to ever-so-slighty be getting paywalled. When I first used it, the free tier was enough, now the free tier is almost as good as gone. There's no benefit to pay for something like this when competitors offer more with a few more obstacles to overcome.

Very Buggy, Very Poor Support

2020-01-28

I liked everything it did (and does) feature wise. I immediately started having issues with features and tools not working.

Pros

The features are really cool. Branded URL for Screenshots, Screencasts, and File Sharing.

Cons

Consistently buggy. It is very normal for various features to have bugs up to and including not working at all.

Great way to share screenshots, recordings and files!

2019-07-31

I'm extremely happy with this app, but there's ONE thing that it doesn't do that I REALLY need: copying the file into my clipboard right after taking the screenshot/recording.

Pros

Since I have it, I'm using CloudApp much less, as its interface is better and it offers a much better functionality to organise files online.

Cons

I sometimes need this functionality more often than the link sharing, so that's the only reason I haven't ditched CloudApp.

I would be lost without this application for sharing stuff everything with workmates.

2018-02-26

Pros

Being able to drag multiple files to the icon and have them automatically zip and upload.

Cons

The annotations editor is still glitchy a lot of the time. Recording screencasts/GIFs can be clunky. An option to have video with audio removed would be handy. It would be really useful to easily create image/video "collections" on one page that could be shared with a link. Searching/categorising in the application could be improved, it's hard to find things a lot of the time.

Droplr: easily capture screenshots and make screen recordings

2020-08-14

With Droplr, I can capture screenshots and screen recordings easily on both my computer and phone. I may upload the captured images and videos to the company's own servers and then share them with my family and colleagues. Droplr is a paid service.

Pros

Droplr has a more robust plan geared towards enterprise users with more demanding needs; it offers features like more storage space and an online dashboard.

Cons

Although Droplr is not expensive, there are free alternatives that offer similar functionality.

I've been using Droplr for years, it's become a transparent part of my daily work (a good thing!)

2018-03-01

Pros

Super happy to have the ability to use images locally by dragging them off the Droplr window!

Cons

When you click the shape annotation tools it shows you a dropdown instead of a long click to change the tool.

Droplr is a lightweight & incredibly handy tool for daily communication

2018-03-07

Helps me communicate easier with coworkers and clients on a day-to-day basis.

Pros

Love the tagging function and the Mac applet is very handy so you don't have to switch to your browser every time. Customer support has been great whenever something comes up. Seems to be in constant development. Overall a really handy service for quick screenshot, annotation, screencast sharing and simple communication!

Cons

Although good, the app needs some improvement: - Ability to customize the tools at the top of the menu bar applet - Editing items in the Mac app window instead of browser - Better screencast functionality, like editing the recording area size, position, controls, etc

Droplr

2020-12-09

I’m happy with the tool and will continue to use it.

Pros

East to use, helpful when screenshooting and saving files. Also easy to sure.

Cons

Sometimes I think it’s a bit unnecessary as I use an apple computer that has built in screenshot functionality, but it’s still nice to have

My top utility tool - convenient, powerful, effective & delightful

2018-02-27

Pros

Droplr is so easy to use that it has become a seamless tool in my daily workflow. Whether creating a simple screenshot, annotating/redacting images, or sharing files, one key-combo does it all.

Cons

Very occasionally I will have to restart the application from the top toolbar after freezing/seizing up. No big deal. I really love Droplr.

Solid app experience with many useful features

2018-02-28

Pros

I like that it's easy to quickly capture and annotate screenshots, upload files, create notes and create record screencasts.

Cons

Some of the recent app updates are a little rough around the edges... the code snippet utility was very useful before is now not mapped to a shortcut, and the interface isn't as intuitive for that type of upload as it once was.

I bought it in an offer of AppSumo But turned out to be a worst experience!

2019-06-26

Which will drop out randomly?

Pros

1. Pretty cheap then what you get based on resources. 2. Good for instructors or someone who likes to make videos. 3. High-quality video captures on the go. 4. Droplr page loads fast. 5. Annotation.

Cons

Where a different free brand like Loom is much smoother.

Cheap and powerful tool for taking screenshots and editing them quickly.

2018-01-30

Quick, fast, efficient, and non-cluttering screen shot tool. It's a real delight to use, and I'd be lost without it now.

Pros

It's a wonderful tool for quickly taking snapshots and marking them up, rather than taking a SS, importing to Photoshop, and dealing with layers.

Cons

Seems a bit pricey for what it is compared to SnagIt, but since work pays for it I don't focus on this as much.

Take it from a CEO, this doubled our companies productivity and collaboration. It's a must!

2016-12-29

We now go from the idea (captured with a drop screen shot) from one of our creators who annotates it easily with drawing, arrows, and text, and then sends it by slack or text instantly as it is already copied on their clipboard to a design team and developers to get thoughts.

Pros

We now go from idea (captured with a drop screen shot) from one of our creators who annotates it easily with drawing, arrows and text, and then sends it by slack or text instantly as it is already copied on their clipboard to a design team and developers to get thoughts. They comment back and send their own drops with screen shots, etc to GET THE POINT ACROSS IN IMAGES AND ANNOTATIONS rather than writing it out or talking on the phone.

Cons

The tagging works well but I wish we could organize drops into custom groups as well
