A tool that measures screen elements seems too basic to improve on. However, PixelSnap 2 adds features I didn’t even know I needed. An incredible aid to my workflow and definitely worth the upgrade.

Paul Boag, Smashing Magazine

Wonderful tool for quickly taking measure of just about anything. I especially love the functionality of snapping a rectangle around an object of your screen. Super handy!

Richard Blechinger, Freelancer developer

PixelSnap is the missing ingredient in the toolkit of any UI engineer or designer. I use it multiple times each day and can't imagine a Mac without it. Speed up your workflow with this high quality app, you won't regret it!

Wojtek Witkowski, Rainbow

Super clever idea and very much needed tool in the world of UI designer. Honestly, it exceeded my expectation, flawless in every way.

Eddie Lobanovskiy, Unfold Agency

I've been working primarily on web products for the last 3 years where being able to reliably measure things on the screen is such an underrated need. PixelSnap does that so well and is now low-key my favorite utility app.

Hardik Pandya, Google

PixelSnap has been such a great tool for quickly spot checking size & space when working closely with a development team. I really appreciate its ability to maintain scale when zooming on an object in Sketch, and being able to grab individual items into a screenshot after snapping.

Kevin Smith, Cisco

PixelSnap is one of those apps that, once you see it, you're like OMG that's the best idea ever. Instant purchase for me.

Chris Coyier, CodePen
