I took 10 pictures but in 5 images of 10 had there was the half of the GrabMac displayed. Graphic error.
I'm sorry, but this is not what I expect for a 5 Star application ! Have a look at this picture: http://www.tool-forceSW.com/Screenshot3.png

I can't imagine using this or any other third-party screenshot utility except to take a picture of a screensaver, which cannot be done without a timer function. GrabMac does this brilliantly.

It does not crash on my system (Quicksilver PowerMac G4 933 MHZ 1 Gig RAM) after denying it access to an outbound connection.

I think this is the best app yet from Digital Calamity. I remember when these guys were still Underground-only. Very nice work here, Freak. I like how in the Dimensions area that you made it very easy of exactly what to capture.

This will come in handy. And the GUI is fine. If EVERYONE were so unwilling to learn new ways of doing things (though, this app isn't anything remarkably different than anything on the OS X platform) then we would never advance in technology. close-mindedness hurts technology. Why do you think Windows sucks so bad?

After a try-out of GrabMac 2.0 and FreeSnap 1.0a11, I find them both to have a rather un-Mac-ish GUI. For me that equals "will never use this app."

Perhaps they are more sophisticated than the lite (=free) version of SnapNDrag 1.61. But, I can't waste time learning yet another person's idea of UI. Leave that frustration to users of Windows software.

Check out the interface for SnapNDrag -- it's "obvious" to any Mac user. Not much learning needed. Ain't that what Mac OSX GUI is all about?

When starting GrabMac, the FIRST thing GrabMac does is try to open a connection with 66.49.218.6. After denying a connection, GrabMac quits.

This is completely unacceptable.

And have you bothered to contact the developer and ask why this app attempts to connect to that address? Or do you always "shoot first and ask questions later", thereby assuming that you know everything before responsibly investigating an issue? Pfffft!

I DON'T care why.

And there isn't any "shooting first".

I'm commenting on the BEHAVIOR of the app not his reasons and I'm not assuming why his app does it.

NO MATTER the reason it is completely unacceptable to open a connection with another machine without FIRST telling the user why and SECOND making it an option.

What makes it even worse is that the app will quit if the connection is denied.

GrabMac will check for a new version on the digitalcalamity.org server.
You can disable it in the preferences.
Why It quits I don't know, and I hear about this for the 1st time.

Perhaps I am paranoid, but do the preferences of this app bear a resemblance to FreeSnap, my own screen capture program?

One could notice some resemblance, since both FreeSnap and GrabMac try to fit the general preferences *patern* OSX apps use.

Yes, but they are laid out almost the same, and the fixed location feature seems to have been borrowed (but glorified)...not a problem if it was though. And if I'm making this up, please ignore me. =)
