CaptureA new mobile app has launched that is geared towards enabling Android users to save and share screenshots from their device. Called ShotDrop, it will specifically upload screenshots to Dropbox and generate a Web link that you can use to share the image with whoever you wish.

Bearing a slight resemblance to Google+’s auto-backup capability, ShotDrop will automatically detect when a screenshot is captured and only those images will be uploaded, not anything from your camera roll — and it’s all done in the background.

ShotDrop comes as a free option, but limits users to five screenshots per day after a “generous” 100 captures. It will include ads. For those that don’t want these restrictions, the company is also offering a Pro version for $0.99.
