Every now and again I’ll run into a Mac utility that is so obvious and so useful that it’s an immediate purchase. Often, such apps are not mainstream, seldom used by the average Mac user, but for those who need it, they, too rejoice. Screenfloat is one such app.
No, it’s not just another Mac screen grabber app. Those are available all over the Mac kingdom and range in price from free to $100. Screenfloat does something different to justify the few dollars in the price tag and what it does is described in the name.
Screenshots that float on the Mac’s screen.
Why is that important? There are times when Mac users take quick screen snapshots, either to hold information visible, or to save a segment of a website or graphic to look at later. Screenfloat does both.
Screenfloat makes it simple to grab a snippet of the Mac’s screen and keep it always visible and nearby in a floating window. It comes with keyboard shortcuts and features a screenshot browser to view previously captured images.
Captured images can be dropped into any Mac app that handles standard graphic files, and you can organize, categorize, name and tag each one.
Screenfloat isn’t just for graphic designers or photographers. It works great for anyone who finds a snippet of information on a webpage, website, email or anything on the screen that you’d like to capture and save for later.
It couldn’t be easier to use and it can be a big time saver.
