Presto 1.2 ($250) - Presto uses head tracking and image-matching technology to help simply the process of creating and editing videos. After importing a video and presentation slides into Final Cut Pro, the utility automatically creates a timed slide track that is displayed beside the presenter in the video. A free update for all existing customers, Presto 1.2 offers four new layout templates, better animated transitions between layouts, smoother presenter tracking, and an option for rounded slide corners.

NetShade 4.4 ($30) - NetShade is a tool for routing an Internet connection through either a public anonymous proxy server, or through NetShades own dedicated proxy. This allows users to mask their IP address and improve security while browsing the web. Version 4.4 has added a Czech proxy server, as well as moved all of the existing proxies to a server for download. A performance issue that could cause delays when launching the application has also been addressed. [Download - 2MB]

In addition, the option to export web pages from the Voila browser as PDFs has been added. [Download - 21.4MB]

LittleSnapper 1.8 ($40) - Little Snapper is a tool for taking and organizing screenshots. As images are captured they are automatically organized into a library with options for tagging, rating and commenting.

A number of other small tweaks and enhancements have also been included. [Download - 5.3MB]
