Snapplr for Mac
Briksoftware has launched Snapplr, a screenshot taking and sharing tool that can replace Mac OS X's original screen-shooting capabilities and fully integrates into the system. Snapplr displays a small control panel on the bottom of the screen when taking screenshots, that enables users to select the destination of their screenshot whether it involves sending them via e-mail, copying to the clipboard, or saved as a file. The tool also automatically uploads screenshots taken directly to Snapplr and gives users a URL in their clipboard that can be shared and used to view the shot.
A feature called "Live" is included as well, and gives the ability to select an area, screen, or window, and receive a URL that will take up-to-date screenshots on demand. This allows other people to view the progress of what's being worked on, merely by re-loading the URL given to them in the web browser and receiving a screenshot of how it looks at that specific time. Delayed screenshots can also be done with this tool.
Snapplr is compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 or later and is priced at $25. A free 30-day full-functional trial is available for download.
