File and screenshot-sharing service Droplr has announced a new desktop app today that makes it easier for Slack users to share items with other users.

The new app – called Screenbot – not only lets you share screenshots by plugging into the Slack API (a little like Snip and Share for Chrome), along with annotations, screencasts or an entire Web page too.

Once you’ve selected what to share, you just select which Slack channel or person you’d like to send it to.

As with many tools, Screenbot was borne out of necessity – the company simply realized how many screenshots it was sharing on Slack each day, so built a tool to ease the process. With good feedback from beta testers, it has decided to now open it up to all.

Like Droplr’s main sharing service, Screenbot has a free tier that limits the number of shares each month and a $5 per month subscription that opens up unlimited sharing, custom themes and domains, and privacy settings for sensitive data.

Right now there’s only a Mac version, but a Windows build is on the way.
