TinyGrab is a simple yet extremely powerful utility for Mac OS X. Harnessing the power of Mac OS Xâ€™s built in screenshot capabilites, TinyGrab instantly uploads and allows you to share with a small URLâ€” all in under thirty-seconds.
TinyGrab was envisioned in April 2009 by British student Chris Leydon, whilst at Staffordshire University in the United Kingdom.
The first version of TinyGrab was limited to run only on the Mac OS X operating system. Soon after, TinyGrab expanded upon this by releasing an application that allowed users of Microsoft Windows to use the service. TinyGrab for iPhone was released on 26 May 2010 and is now available in the iTunes app store
In March 2010, TinyGrab was profiled in Macworld Magazine.
April 2010 saw the announcement of TinyGrab 2.0 with the beta launching in October 2010. TinyGrab 2.0 focuses on social screenshot sharing and is a complete overhaul of the system.
In May 2010, TinyGrab appealed to its users for help with funding the project in order to keep it alive. Later the same month they announced support from MacHeist and Rackspace.
TinyGrab was available for a short time through a MacHeist bundle at the end of 2009.
Unusually for a web based service, TinyGrab is entirely self funded by the two founding partners with no external source of funding, or investors.
