  1. Droplr is a web-based service that makes sharing things like images, notes, links and just about any type of file you'd use on your computer dead simple. Using a companion desktop application, users can hit a keystroke to take a screenshot and have it automatically uploaded to the service, or drag & drop any file or snippet of text to the Droplr icon sitting on the dock or menu bar to host it. Once uploaded, Droplr returns a small notification with a shortened URL that's automatically copied to your system's clipboard so you can share it with anyone.

    I've been using Droplr for a while on OS X and it is really great for sharing files fast. There's also CloudApp ( on the Mac but I prefer Droplr because their app has a smaller memory footprint although both services work very similarly.

    As recommended by Mario/Jose, Droplr is a nifty little tool to grab and share screenshots in a snap.

    Maybe I'm not investigating enough... but I'm having trouble distinguishing the purposes of these apps and Dropbox & Evernote...

    Getting confused
