What is GoFullPage?

Getting Started with GoFullPage

Key Points

  • GoFullPage is a one-click app that helps you document what you see on the web, exactly as you see it on your screen.
  • GoFullPage automates the process of scrolling a page and manually stitching together screenshots of an entire webpage.
  • GoFullPage Premium offers additional editing and annotating tools such as cropping, textboxes, shapes, emojis, datestamp, and URL/browser rendering.

What we do

A couple days ago, I was talking to a good friend in branding and marketing who is putting together a competitive landscape of her industry. We were sharing the different problems we’re tackling in our respective startups, and she asked,

“…wait, what does your app do again?”

I shared with her that what GoFullPage does is quite simple. With one click, it takes a screenshot of an entire webpage by:

  1. scrolling the page and taking a screenshot of each visible screen
  2. stitching the results together
  3. resulting in a complete picture of the full page!

She let out an audible yelp and exclaimed, “you’re telling me I don’t have to scroll page after page, trying to cobble together screenshots to create images of the landing pages of our competitors?”

“This is exactly, exactly what I needed!”

Simple and indispensable

For the wide range of webpage designs across the internet, we are often the only solution for capturing an image of the entire webpage. Other solutions:

  • can only capture the visible portion of the page
  • can only capture public URLs
  • cannot accommodate some of the more common, yet complicated iframes, banners, and feeds we’ve optimized for

In addition to creating an indispensable tool, we’ve focused heavily on creating an extremely lightweight and straightforward user experience. We’ve prioritized the simplicity of a one-push marquee screenshotting feature, while allowing advanced optionality for anyone seeking further product customization.

With a single click, you can create marketing material from your online work, document online inspiration from social media profiles, put together a legal specimen of your website for a trademark application, keep track of changes on competitors’ websites, or print an interesting article for reading offline.
