SCRN

The easiest way to make bookmarks on your phone

SCRN app is a totally new way to save useful content. Once you see an interesting post in your favourite app, just make a screenshot saving it for later. No need to switch apps, SCRN automatically recognizes the link from the screenshot and makes the content available to read anytime. Just screenshot to read later!

I don't see the appeal of this app. It's one extra step to add an article to a far more popular app, and that extra step doesn't result in having lots of screenshots to delete later that take up storage space.
Hi Ian, thanks for the feedback. I think the best way to say whether SCRN will improve user experience is to try the app after it's launch. I'm going to write a blog post about the idea behind the app soon.
As for storage space the app will remove used screenshots, so there will be no issues. Cheers!
Could you explain a little more about how this works? You say 'SCRN automatically recognizes the link from the screenshot' - but from my experience 9 times out of 10 the link/URL on mobile is reduced to the root domain and doesn't include subfolders and pages.
@_CharlieBuckle Hi Charlie, thanks for your question. We've developed a way to get direct source link from social media posts screenshots. I can't tell you all the "magic" but can say that we use image recognition for that.
@fo0x I guess you can just take a bunch of screenshots within an like Medium, and compare all pixels to identify constant UI elements. That way you create a 'finger print' to compare against anytime a user takes a screenshot. Very clever!
@marckohlbrugge Pretty much like that :) Thanks!
is this like the old 'sight app' used to work? I loved that! until it disappeared. screenshot=bookmark with such small difference in context, it so natural to capture like this. I'm excited!
will it strip text and export like sight app used to?
@HumbleHouse1 Never heard of it before, but yes, it's pretty similar. We'll work on functions and feaures, export may be implemented if the users will request it.
