Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
Use ScreenFloat to create floating screenshots that are always visible, no matter which application you're in.
This way, you don't have to move or resize windows around to keep information visible on your screen.
• Floating Screenshots
Screenshots you create with ScreenFloat
(by default with the keyboard hotkey cmd-shift-2)
immediately open up and are always displayed
in front of other windows, following you around,
no matter which application, space or fullscreen app you are in.
Shots can be changed in size, or in opacity by scrolling up or down within them.
• Shots Browser
ScreenFloat keeps your shots around
for later reference when you close them.
Shots are collected in the Shots Browser
where you can name, tag, organize and categorize them.
• Quick and easy export of shots
You can send shots created with ScreenFloat
to any application that handles image files.
A double click onto a floating shot will open it in
a default application you can specify for even quicker export.

I'd like to invite you to my blog at http://blog.eternalstorms.at or to follow me on twitter (@ScreenFloatApp or @eternalstorms) if you'd like to follow the development process of my apps or get tips and tricks on how to get the most out of them.
Thank you kindly,
Incredibly helpful for everyone
You may think to yourself, “I don’t see why I’d need this, I can already use the Mac’s built-in screen capture functionality, it’s fine.” I get that, but here’s what you’re missing.
In just one day of using your computer try to pay attention to how often you need some information from another window, another space, or another app. You switch from window to window and back again, making sure you got it right. Or maybe you spend time resizing a bunch of things so you can see all of them at the sizes you need to. You might be a designer who needs to temporarily recall some RGB values in a Photoshop palette or dialog box. Or maybe you’re a developer who needs to recall the sizes of a couple of views but can’t have them on the screen at the same time.
Boom, ScreenFloat is the answer. Just type your hotkey, drag around the thing you need to recall, then put it out of your mind and switch back to your other task. There’s the info, floating right where you need it, even though that other window/app/space is no longer visible.
This app saves me hours of stupid switching back-and-forth or copying-temporarily-to-notepad or resizing windows or dealing with giant full-screen screenshots or writing on paper (heaven forbid!).
So, so useful.
Awesome, but no new functionality. Stale development.
Don’t believe there’s been any substantial changes for the past year. Adding an “about panel” is nothing. Lots of ways to continue making this a better app, but the developer appears to have abandoned it (except for bug fixes and “about panels”). For example, incorporate google drive, dropbox, onenote, etc. Double click to clipboard doesn’t always work, etc. Another idea is to add a virtual folder to allow “coralling” all the open/floating screenshot into a folder. Gets crazy having to constantly resize them and move to corner. I want them open…but want to quickly get them out of the way/organized. I know I can hide them all, but that’s not what I’m talking about here.
This app has LOTS more potential, but unfortunately hasn’t improved at all in the past year or so. Too bad there’s not comparable app at the moment.
Easy, useful and my new choice for quick screen shots
Most Useful App for screenshots. I have downloaded (and paid) for many apps that claim the easy usefulness this app has. I take a lot of screen shots and am often bothered by either their inaccessibility to launch or the difficulty I have sharing, saving or viewing previously taken screen shots. While it doesn’t have an editor, it does offer a quick launch from your toolbar and can easily be called up or fade behind whatever you are working on. As useful as SnagIt for Windows for collecting screen shots with a better e-mail option that doesn’t require saving the shot first.
