Screeny makes screen capturing easy and gives you the freedom to capture your videos or images at any size. You can click & drag to resize the capture area or input the exact pixel dimensions to set to the size of the capture area. All the while you will get instant feedback on the capture area's current pixel dimensions.
Screen casting just got a billion times better with Screeny. Now you can capture a specific portion of your screen, rather than having to record your entire desktop. This can drastically reduce video file size and bring focus to a specific portion of your screen. You can even include a video feed from your web-cam inside of your screen cast!
NOTE: Screeny ONLY works in OS X Lion (10.7) and higher.

What's New in Version 2.2
• Fixed bugs that prevented certain computers from being able to stop recording.
• Added support for Droplr file sharing.
• Added retina support.
• Other small bug fixes.
Sound not working on long videos with built in microphone (macbook pro)… and by long videos I mean anything over a minute has not recorded the audio. Even though it says 2 channel audio in the video file.
If I make a 10 second clip to test the audio, it works. Then if I make a clip that lasts around a minute or longer, no sound.
I gave it 3 stars as the compression is good, the video is good, the mouse click feature is good, though would be nice to see a differentiation between the right click and the left click (minor, but would be nice).
This isn't the first time this software has acted up… a while back there was a bug that wouldn't let you stop recording, though v2.2 seems to have fixed this problem.
Sadly, this program seems to not be running 100% for a while now, for me anyhow.
Macbook pro 17" running Mac OS X 10.8.4
Camera does not activate
I actually purchased this just for the PIP camera feature. Many others are having the same issue where their camera is not activating. I would stay away for now until they resolve this.
Doesnt work in Mavericks
The app completely crashes in mavericks. Don’t waste your money.
