    I was wondering if anyone knew how to replicate the 'flash' effect of a screenshot of an ios device on a mac. I want to use it as visual feedback for shortcuts such as shift command 3.

    I'm not certain that its possible to receive any notification that a screenshot is taking place... Unless maybe you can moniter:
    1 - the directory in finder where screenshots are kept (which you'd have to find from a preference plist hidden in library, no doubt)
    2 - the user's clipboard for changes in the image data stored?

    I do not believe you have any chance of an app with these features being sandboxable.
