ScreenFloat1.5.17

Create screenshots in floating windows.

Overview

ScreenFloat allows you to create screenshots which float above all other windows so that information is always readily available.

  • ScreenFloat is the ideal choice for anyone tired of moving and resizing windows around just to access a piece of information hidden behind them.
  • It is a great way to transfer not copy-paste-able information to another application.
  • It is also an excellent tool to store information for later use.

ScreenFloat offers you a great way to organize your shots with the built-in "Shots Browser", which lets you tag and name shots and organize them in "Collections" and "Smart Collections", sorted by criteria you specify.

I like this tool very much and I'm happy to see it finally got an update. The GUI still looks outdated though and has some issues. Hopefully they will be addressed as well.

Please be aware that version 1.4.2 no longer supports Mac OS X 10.6. You will have to revert to a backup if you install it.

I am sure that ScreenFloat is an excellent App, but why is MU not listing SnappyApp as a very good free alternative?

Version 1.4.2 has stopped working on my iMac 0S X 10.6.8. An eMail to the dev came back saying it was undeliverable after 2 hours. This comment is in the hope he looks here once in a while.

5 stars all the way! Extremely useful to have a floating, multi-Spaces screenshot. Can delete it easily. Can save it also. Perfect for my needs. Great! Definitely worth the cost. (Using SnapNDrag much less now.)

Great app! Lots of situations this can be used in. Though I have several other much more expensive screenshot apps... this provides features that none of the others do. Extremely useful and well worth the money. I work with the Adobe Suite and many other apps that have a large number of panels spread across two large monitors (so you may ask... Why would he need this with all of that room?)... with this app though I don't have to keep moving an image source (screenshot taken by Screenfloat) so as to see it every time I bring another app to the front with its panels in yet other positions. Instead I can just leave the SF screenshot in place (or at worst have to move it only slightly without accidentally moving an app's panel by mistake). Again... very useful app! Anyone working with Adobe apps or lots of windows open will love this app.

I love this utility. I log into my checking account. Snap a picture. Update my spreadsheet. Before I had to switch windows all the time. It works for any information you want to access on your screen in another application.

Wow, ScreenFloat is an incredible timesaver! I wish I has this long ago. NOTE TO DEVELOPER: ScreenFloat is the absolute perfect utility while using the brainstorming/project management app, Curio. In my opinion it should be bundled with every copy of Curio. Perhaps you could contact the publisher (Zengobi) and possibly make thousands of other Curio users very happy. I recently heard about ScreenFloat on Zebgobi's Blog and it has turned out to be one of the best timesaving tips I've run across in years. Thanks for creating an excellent product.

Downloaded the demo. So far it works fine, I really like the organized and stored shots in the browser without fiddling, renaming and organizing on your desktop all the time. But I miss some feature that I found to be very useful in e. g. SnapNDrag. The option to make either full screen shots or window shots. Think I will purchase it then... Otherwise good work.

So useful!! Screen Float is made of win. It just makes life so much easier when it comes to taking and managing screenshots. Sure, you can press ⌘-shift-4 and select a portion of the screen. But then you have to fiddle around renaming stuff, it's just a pain in the backside. Managing all those stupid files cluttering up my desktop drives me crazy.

I don't think the guy who made this has heard of cmd-tab. Two keys, easy switching. Saves me eight bucks.

Developer: Unlike so many other new developers out there, you actually offer a demo! You need to make this more readily known. A lot of us have been complaining about the lack of "try before you buy" that seems to be the new norm. The MU page gives the immediate impression that yours is only "buy or nothing," even though a visit to your site proves otherwise. I was intrigued by this program, and your willingness to stand by your product via a demo has now only increased my appreciation of it. Thank you!
