ScreenFloat 1.1.1 review

ScreenFloat can make the process of taking screenshots easier, but even if you never need images of your Mac’s screen, it can make some of your daily computing tasks more convenient. The clever – and cleverly implemented – program lacks just a couple of extras that could send it into the 5-star stratosphere.

The app handily offers a preference to live in your menu bar. Fire up ScreenFloat and drag the selection box around any item on your screen. Instead of saving an image file to your Desktop, ScreenFloat creates a floating window containing only that selected screenshot area.

However, the app packs plenty of other functionality, too. Click the screenshot window’s settings icon and the resulting menu lets you choose the image’s window level (either a normal window or an always-floating one), copy the screenshot to the Clipboard, delete the screenshot, or – most impressive – send the screenshot directly to another app.

Another useful feature is that ScreenFloat keeps a history of all your screenshots in its library, making it easy to reuse an old image should the need arise. You can optionally rename and tag your saved screenshots.

OUR VERDICT

ScreenFloat doesn’t let you edit or annotate screenshots or easily share them and it would be good to be able upload the current screenshot somewhere and save, to the Clipboard, the URL for the uploaded image. Despite a few limitations, it’s a solid screenshot tool.
