    I just send the screenshots via iMessage to myself and drag them from Messages.app in OS X.

    I like Elliot’s workflow.

    I'm usually at my desk, so USB + Image Capture is typically what I go for. I use Dropbox when I'm not. This is definitely an example of something that’s better on Android — Dropbox can be set up to automatically upload screenshots you take. It’s great!

    I think apple already solved this problem with Airdrop. It might be shitty in older devices, but in new devices it works fine.

      I’ve never found AirDrop to be particularly reliable plus the two factors that I like about this are that I can upload them as soon as I take them, where ever that happens to be and that they get imported into my library automatically, which is where they always end up anyway.

      It may not be the best solution for everyone, but it’s the best one for me at the moment. :)

    Am I missing something? Why not just plug your device in via usb, open up quicktime to view your device screen, and take as many window grabs as you want? (I guess you'd need to be tethered to your computer at the time, so that's one drawback.)

      Because that’s a lot more faff than just taking taking screenshots on the device IMO. It would also mean that’d I’d have to have a mac with me whenever I play with a new app which is hardly ever the case.

        Definitely fair points! It doesn't feel like more work to me but I think it depends on why you're taking the screencaps in the first place. When I go cap-crazy it's usually in order to document a flow or a bunch of screens all in one session vs. just because I'm casually interested in what I'm seeing. But yes, it's no good if you're not already near your computer.
