PixelStick is a measuring tool you can pinch and stretch to measure anything on your screen.

Use the loupe to magnify anything on screen.

Use the eyedropper to copy colors that are anywhere on your monitor in 4 formats (CSS, RGB, RGB hex, HTML) to the clipboard for use in any app.

Its like an onscreen virtual ruler that you can use vertically, horizontally and at any angle to measure distances, angles and much more just by dragging. Using the palette one can lock distances and angles (also by using the shift key).

Supports scaling for Google Maps, Yahoo Maps, Photoshop and Customized scaling options.

What's New in Version 2.10

[new] Map mode for measuring angles increasing clockwise. When combined with setting the baseline to a vertical line, this is great for taking bearings on a map. [mod]
[new] manual updated and new location.
[Fix] Draw circle guides correctly on Retina screens.
[Fix] Improve behaviour when editing values directly in the palette.
[Fix] Double-click on the palette title bar only to collapse the palette. This means double click within the content of the palette now correctly selects the text to edit instead of collapsing the window.
[Comment] Thanks for all the user feedback. We really appreciate hearing about your suggestions, bugs, manual additions and changes. More good stuff to come...
