Snappy is software that allows the production of screenshots from areas on a Windows desktop screen. The software is developed by Italian author Stefano Napafini, who has also developed OldBar, a replacement for the sidebars in Windows; Hamster, a minimalist audio player; ePIM, a personal assistant program; and FlatCDRipper, a program that can extract digital audio from CDs.

One of the most useful tools in collaboration is being able to share one's desktop with another, whether in image or video format. OndaNera's Snappy software takes the former route, delivering fast and easy images captured directly from the user's desktop. The software is comparable in functionality to Hypercam, ManyCam and many other desktop capturing software. While many programs, such as Discord, Skype and even Facebook, have desktop capturing functionality built-in, Snappy still has applications for other uses, such as wanting to quickly and easily capture an area to the clipboard for quick correspondence.
