I noticed co-workers using tools like Keynote, Photoshop, or even Gliffy when adding callouts and labels to screenshots for customer facing content. This is in spite of there being a lot of free screenshot + annotations tools in the market like Skitch or Monosnap.
I feel like there is a niche for a tool that allows you to create professional and polished looking annotations for screenshots. This is in contrast to the casual style of annotations produced by the free tools that already exist in the market. Confluence seems like the right place for this tool because it's commonly used for technical documentation. Screenshots are usually an important part of this type of documentaiton.
What it does
