ScreenFloat - More Useful Screenshots
By Matthias Gansrigler
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.

Incredibly helpful for everyone
My previous review still stands, and thanks to the developer for updating it to work with the upcoming Sierra operating system:
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.
I purchased this app because I use Apples screen capture a lot but find it restrictive and cumbersome to use. This app floats the shot around, has a shot browser and can move between applications. These functions have made my workflow 100% more efficient. The app sits in the menu bar and is really easy to use. When I first used it I did have a problem which I reported to Matthias at Eternal Strorms Software. He did recreate what I did and it worked on his system which lend me to the real problem which was Apples (They have a workaround available). But this shows that the product is exceptional and the support is equal to the product. Eternal Storms cares about their app and customers. If you use screen capture buy this product. You will not be disappointed.
Became one of the first tools I install
There are literally a ton of apps that do screenshots, but ScreenFloat is unique, even in comparison to the mother of them all, SnagIt… which I also use.
Once you use ScreenFloat for 5 minutes, you will immediately recognize its value. When you have a ton of windows, and multiple monitors, having a snippet of some information readily available within view without having to move all sorts of window around, is indeed a HUGE time saver. I use ScreenFloat not only to take and save screen shots, but to retain a certain piece of information momentarily while I move to another application, and then I delete this info. On an average day, I would say I take about 20 to 30 snippets, and I may save 2 or 3 of them.
So if you’re looking for a tool that seriously makes your life efficient, do yourself a favor, and take a look at ScreenFloat, it will change the way you do things.
p.s: Developer is also super responsive to feature requests. It’s a big plus.
