This application is great. I've always had to make a screenshot and move that file around to let somebody see what I see but this application makes it easier.

But I also want to point out some problems :
- on my iMac Core Duo with OS X 10.4.9 it crashes frequently and I have to relaunch it very often.
- the pointer on the screenshots is just a yellow outline. I'm not sure if it was supposed to be that way.

At last I would like to request a feature :
- I would like to be able to adjust the size of the output image. In many cases a 50% sized image is enough.

I wouldn't say this is the best way to show the desktop to everybody because at my home I have a complicated setup of a wifi router and a voip gateway and therefore am unable to enable port forwarding to my pc and hence I can't show the desktop to anybody over the internet. I wish there was option to show it over virtual lan network like using hamachix or vua upnp server... any help in this direction would be greatly appreciated.

Pretty cool. Basically, it's a mini web server that serves up a single screenshot (not video) every time an incoming client issues a request. A lot easier than having to upload images to a webserver and easier than trying to get someone to install VNC.
