Web Snapper: Video and Review

LogoHave you ever found yourself in the position where you need to archive an online receipt or article or web page? Instead of just copying and pasting the text, would you like it to look exactly like the web page? Well, if so, then Web Snapper is the perfect tool for you, because it does all of that and more!

Web Snapper (previously Red Snapper) by TastyApps retails for $15. Web Snapper is perfect for snapping a page off of the web, and turning it into a PDF with pages (or not). Being only $15 it is much cheaper than getting an OCR application to do these tasks, and the final product looks much better! This is why it’s called Web Snapper: it takes an exact replica of the web page, text and everything, and turns it into a beautiful PDF document.

Here is a video made by the developer about the new version of Web Snapper, Web Snapper 2.2:

Web Snapper from TastyApps.com on Vimeo.

Again, Web Snapper retails for only $15 from TastyApps and a new version, 2.2, has just been released, which adds many new features as shown in the video. It is a very useful application, and the final product that you make looks, well, exactly like it should. If you really like it, buy it!

    This looks quite useful. I find Saft’s “Export PDF” feature in the right-click menu suits my needs, but it can’t combine multiple PDFs into one, and it can’t export the page as an image either. So if you need these features, Web Snapper seems to be a good choice.

  2. Leo Mancini on April 13th, 2008 9:41 am

    The app Paparazzi! does the same thing for free… http://www.derailer.org/paparazzi/

  3. Joe Turner on April 13th, 2008 9:45 am

    @Leo can Paparazzi save DHTML menus?

    In my opinion, Web Snapper just looks better, especially the icon!

  4. Tim on April 13th, 2008 9:52 am

    Actually there are a bunch of features that Web Snapper *has* and paparazi does not – including multipage PDF, pagination, browser integration, formatting options etc. etc. I actually created Web Snapper because of there was nothing out there that had the features i needed.

    Web Snapper also has a can grab almost any site – WYSIWYG – What you see is what you get. Paparazi seems to have trouble on many sites.

    And possibly the *most* important thing… these days often times you want the site “as you have configured it” – a certain state of a javascript menu, a certain frame of an animation, or video, a form with the information pre filled, etc. Web Snapper is the *only* application on the market that can do that.

    Give it a test drive, and let me know if you can think of any features that will make it even more useful.

  5. Tim on April 13th, 2008 9:57 am


    No, Paparazzi can not capture DHTML menus – Web Snapper however can – and thats huge. Try capturing this page with Paparazzi and then Web Snapper – even with out any Flash or DHTML paparazzi has problems. However, Web Snappers version… is peeerfect.


  6. Joe Turner on April 13th, 2008 10:03 am

    That’s what I thought. I really do like the WYSIWYG of Web Snapper. And the pagination, especially now that we have Quicklook to view multi=paged pdfs with. And of course, it looks better.

  7. Chriswan on April 13th, 2008 10:18 am

    I’ve said this several times to Tim: I love the beach photo with postage stamp background :D

  8. Tim on April 13th, 2008 10:25 am

    LOL thanks Chriswan, That was inspired by a recent trip to Maui.. where i swam with a sea turtle on a beach just like that ! ;-)

  9. Joe on April 13th, 2008 10:47 am

    Well for online receipts, I just print to Journler, but I can see that Web Snapper can do a lot more. Seems like a nice app and I’ll play with it for the trial period. I can’t think of a compelling reason for me to buy, though. I’ve just never found the need for this type of app.

  10. Jorge on April 13th, 2008 10:52 am

    Although Paparazzi! is freeware it does not do “all” that Web Snapper is capable of doing.

    Web Snapper
    1. Has Safari Plugin Button
    3. multipage support- save a bunch of different pages to a single PDF file.
    4. pagination – different pages for same web page if web page is too long
    5. Include header and footer option
    6. Interface allows for SEVERAL webpages to be snapshot prior to final commitment
    7. autosave feature – save as you go from page to page minimal input
    8. shareware

    1. No
    2. Saves in JPEG, PDG, PEN, TIFF
    3. No
    4. No
    5. No
    6. No
    7. No
    8. freeware

  11. Jim on April 13th, 2008 11:20 am

    Reads like an ad.

  12. Danny on April 13th, 2008 11:34 am

    @Jim: I agree, this does read like an ad. MacApper is usually better than this. What gives?

  13. Joe Turner on April 13th, 2008 11:39 am

    Okay, okay, I get the point, it looks more like an ad than a review. The only reason for this is because of the video included. This was more like a feature show, than a review

    sorry guys

  14. Jorge on April 13th, 2008 11:46 am

    must have been short on time hehehe

  15. MySchizoBuddy on April 13th, 2008 12:02 pm

    Doesn’t File->Print->Save as PDF do the same thing

  16. Tim on April 13th, 2008 12:14 pm


    Nope – that hardly ever saves the PDF with correct formatting, or allow multipage PDFs or all the whole page (without chopping it up into multiple pages). Web snapper can do all that and more…

  17. Joe Turner on April 13th, 2008 2:52 pm

    It doesn’t include the css, or half the html if you do it that way. It is really just text

  18. Jorge on April 13th, 2008 3:45 pm

    This program use to be Red Snapper, but the Tortus ate the fish. Watch out, that little fella has an attitude. LOL

  19. Joe Turner on April 13th, 2008 3:58 pm

    @Jorge LMAO!!!

  20. Jack Panofsky on April 13th, 2008 5:17 pm

    The app SunFlower is similar to paparazzi! and Web Snapper.


    It’s not really for creating screenshots but it saves copies of the websites in the application support directory, and there is a free version.

  21. Shahid on April 14th, 2008 11:36 am

    Hey everyone:

    give it a try to Sunrise. The lean mean web browser that can save webpages as pdf but with all the link.


    it free and fast.

  22. Jorge on April 14th, 2008 12:31 pm

    I tried Sunrise and it did a horrible job! I think I’ll stick to Web Snapper.

    Don’t take my word for it. Take a .pdf snapshot of the tastyapps.com site with both Web Snapper saved as .pdf, and then using Sunrise you’ll see what I mean.

    So far I haven’t see anything that works as well as Web Snapper for saving web pages. Well worth the 15 bucks… Go Web Snapper! ;-)

  23. Tim on April 14th, 2008 12:41 pm

    Thanks Jorge !

    We tried (and continue to try) to make Web Snapper 100% accurate – i’d say we are 98% accurate now… (only a lingering issue with frames support – which we are working on now. Thankfully not too many sites (almost none) use frames these days.

    Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re
    working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very

    I must say you have done a very good job with this.
