    Does Skitch program contain a virus program or spyware? I recently down loaded it and I noticed it said "Bot" on it. Not an expert, but I thought a bot was a virus. I heard good reviews on this program but do not want it unless it's safe.

    What are your thoughts? I was looking for a good screen capture program that I can resize, notes..etc real easy.

    Thanks!

    Where did it say "Bot"?

    Very unlikely it has malware attached, I did a quick Google, and it looks safe.

    No. Plasq is one of THE best mac developers out there and skitch is a great product. I use it myself.
