    Hi all.

    My name is Matt, I'm the developer of Eternal Storms Software, responsible for the apps Yoink, flickery, Briefly and Transloader.

    I'd like to let you know about a substantial update to my screenshot app ScreenFloat (Mac App Store - $6.99, demo available (direct download)).

    What does ScreenFloat do?
    ScreenFloat lets you create floating screenshots to combat having to switch between windows, apps or spaces to transfer information between them. Take a screenshot of the relevant portion of your screen and it pops up floating above all windows, apps and spaces. Now you can switch to the target window and comfortably and easily copy down the info you needed.

    Shots are stored in ScreenFloat's Shots Browser where they can be titled, tagged and categorized with the help of "Smart Categories" based on different criteria, like Smart Folders in Finder.

    What has changed since version 1.0?
    Since the original introduction of ScreenFloat back in 2011, I added lots of useful new features and tweaks.
    Version 1.5, which was released last week, includes these changes and more:
    * Timed Shots - take floating shots with a delay
    * Sharing - quickly share shots via eMail, AirDrop, Facebook, Flickr, Twitter, Messages or ImageShack
    * The transparency of floating shots can be adjusted by scrolling up or down in them, making it easier to compare graphical elements, for example
    * Easier copying by double-clicking onto a floating shot (which can be modified so instead it is sent to a specified application)
    * Shots can now be printed
    * Shots can be resized bigger than their original size, making smaller text more legible

    Pricing & Availability
    ScreenFloat is available on the Mac App Store for $6.99.
    A free 15-day trial can be downloaded from the website (direct download link).

    The app requires OS X Lion 10.7 or newer

    Thank you for your time and interest - enjoy ScreenFloat :)

    Warm regards,
    Matt

    ScreenFloat updated to version 1.5.1

    Hi all.

    Today I released ScreenFloat in version 1.5.1, available on the Mac App Store.

    This update comes with the following small improvements...:
    - Shots can now be hidden individually
    - Filenames are now appended with the Shot's creation date when dragged out so they don't replace shots with the same name (thank you, Günter)

    ...and squashes the following ghastly bugs:
    - Fixed a bug where disabled system shortcuts were unavailable
    - Fixed a bug with localizations - German now works again
    - Removed some legacy code
    - Fixed a crash when retrying to upload to ImageShack
    - Fixed a bug where, when a shot was hidden and quickly shown again, it would vanish (also happened when dragging)

    Mac App Store URL: https://itunes.apple.com/app/screenfloat/id414528154?mt=12
    Free 15-day Trial: http://eternalstorms.at/ScreenFloat

    Enjoy :)

    If you have any feedback or questions, please don't hesitate to let me know here or by mail!

    Update for Yosemite?

    Hi. Are you planning an update for Yosemite specifically for the menubar icon? I know it's small, but would be nice. Love the app. I use it all the time!

    Most importantly, it now works on macOS Sierra!
    It also fixes two bugs and a rare crash, so updating is definitely recommended ;)
