TinyGrab Framework for OS X

Download TinyGrab Framework for OS X

For the past two years we’ve had one reoccurring requests from other developers, open up the TinyGrab API and allow other apps to feature simple screenshot sharing. With TinyGrab 2.0 we’ve redesigned our API from the ground up in order to allow third party developers to add TinyGrab integration into their apps. Our public API isn’t quite finished yet, but we’ve got something for you to play around with in the meantime.

From today onwards developers can download and play with the TinyGrab Framework for Mac OS X. Currently this framework will allow developers to have their apps upload images to the TinyGrab service, along with basic account authorisation.

We’re working on creating frameworks for other operating systems, iOS and Windows are next up, but at the moment we’re focusing on finishing up our public API and getting our native client apps released.

TinyGrab for Courier

Integration is something that we’ve become very keen and focused on here at TinyGrab over the past few months. We believe that in order to be able to give you the best screenshot sharing experience around, and true value for your money, we need to be everywhere. Today sees our very first ever TinyGrab plugin for a third-party application, Courier.

Courier is one of the ultimate uploading and sharing apps for the Mac and is developed by our friends over at Real Mac Software. The TinyGrab destination plugin for Courier allows you to upload multiple photos, screenshots and other images to your TinyGrab account at once and in batch. Incredibly handy if you’re working on that new awesome web design and you have a few pages to show off.

Over the next few months we aim to open up our API to third party developers, so that they can incorporate TinyGrab into their apps and hopefully we can grow a vibrant community around plugins and extensions of our service. Courier is only the first step, if you have any suggestions as to any other services and applications you’d like to see us support please email info@tinygrab.com.

You can download the TinyGrab for Courier plugin for free at http://clydn.com/courier

TinyGrab is all about simple screenshot sharing. It has quickly become one of the most popular creative file sharing apps for Mac, Windows and soon to be iPhone.

It’s been just over a year since the first tests started with TinyGrab and it’s safe to say that we’ve certainly come a long way since then. TinyGrab started life as a test, it was originally intended to be an application for a small group of friends to share images with each other, quickly. When we launched the open beta for TinyGrab we had no idea of the kind of overwhelming response we’d receive. Simple screenshot sharing was the tagline that we used to launch TinyGrab back in July 2009; 10 months on we’re reflecting on our motto and the direction which we want to continue in. Fear not, we are remaining loyal to the screenshots which have served us so well.

Over the past year that TinyGrab has been operating we have seen the rise and fall of some giants in our market. Recently there has been a lot of competition for TinyGrab opening up in similar spaces; however these apps attempt to cater for all file uploading needs, as opposed to focusing on one aspect and doing it really well. TinyGrab has been focused on screenshot sharing for the past year and will continue to be so for the foreseeable future. It would be foolish of us to think that our small team could compete in the very crowded market of multiple file-type sharing; our resources would be stretched too thin and we just wouldn’t be able to do an adequate job. TinyGrab is completely focused on being the best in the screenshot sharing market, something that we believe we’re just not at yet.

Today we’re announcing, officially, our plans for TinyGrab 2.0. We’re going through a complete rewrite. Out with the old system and in with the new. The web interface is currently undergoing a huge redesign, API a complete haul over and the apps have some exciting new features coming to them. We’re not quite ready to throw all of our cards down onto the table just yet, but we still have a few things up our sleeve.

TinyGrab 2.0: Social. Screenshot. Sharing
