The app version on their website is 4. Haven't tried it, no idea how well it works, but there is a newer version available.

Looks like the Windows version has been updated but the Mac version is still on 3.2.

Useless app. Giving this away for free because it is PowerPC only. 19.50 on MacUpdate but 29.50 on the developer site. Really, 29.50 for an obsolete app, even Apple has dumped support for PowerPC.

Screen Calipers is good looking and ran flawlessly when I tried it. A really stable, good looking and nice app. But it costs. Not that it costs very much, but I thought I'd mention a tip about a similar, free application also.

It's called PixelStick, http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/17836

I made a pixel test using these two apps and I got different results. According to my test, using these two programs simultaneously, they give different measurements, and there was no way I could have been mistaken, since one app gave me an even pixel value and the other one gave me an odd pixel value, so if I had somehow misinterpreted their graphical gui's, the results should have differed with 2 pixels (depending on where you presume that the ends of their 'rulers' are). But, again, I got an even/uneven mismatch in the pixel values.

When I brought a screenshot picture of these two apps into Apple's Preview application, and cropped the image after the two application's ruler start and end points, it turned out that the measure given by PixelStick was the same as the new cropped image's size.

Note that I'm not a rocket scientist, so my test might be totally faulty. Maybe they are both right (I read something on PixelStick's website about the fact that there is a difference between pixels and points, and that OSX uses mostly a points measurement system.)

(Sorry if my english fails me and if I'm not making any sense in that observation report. I tried my best.)

Anyway, I thought I'd mention this other app also, for you to decide whichever you prefer. PixelStick also has a very neat ability to show the center point betwee two points. In general, PixelStick looks more geometrically appealing and concise, while Screen Calipers looks more "gear'ish".

I've been a Windows user for years - great to finally see this on the Mac.
