Snagit Arrives on the Mac

Techsmith’s popular screen capturing utility Snagit finally debuted on the Mac last week. I’ve been beta testing it from its early stages, so Techsmith sent us early beta testers a free license. It’s been great seeing it through the beta and now as a final product. Snagit makes it easy to not only capture one’s computer screen, but also includes powerful annotation tools that make spicing up screen captures simple. It’s perfect for building written tutorials or in areas where one needs to visually enhance their screen captures and quickly send them to various destinations. For quick and easy captures, there’s of course their excellent Jing application, and for simple and powerful screencasting, there’s Camtasia Studio for Windows and Camtasia for Mac (I use Camtasia for Mac for all of my professional screencasting projects). As Logos Bible Software did with Logos 4 for Mac, Techsmith is celebrating the launch of Snagit for Mac with a giveaway. You can find all of the details here. Prizes include a MacBook Pro, an iPad, iPod Touch, and some Apple Store Gift Cards. So checkout Snagit for Mac today and enjoy powerful screen capturing as easy as a Mac!

They scrapped all the years of hard toiling over their old platform (the Libronix Digital Library System) and re-built and re-imagined Bible software from the ground up. The result was not only a simpler, smarter, speedier, and synced experience on the PC, but with this new shared codebase on .NET (verses the old experience which was heavily tied to IE and required the Mac version to be re-coded bit by bit), bringing Logos to the Mac was easier and more efficient. Even the early alphas had more features than the shipping version of the old Logos for Mac. The result of the new codebase allows for […]
