Snagit for Mac 2019
Snagit comes packed with loads of useful editing tools

The Grab tool supplied with Mac OS X is perfectly fine for occasional screen captures of windows, selected areas of the screen or even the screen itself. You can overlay a mouse pointer if you wish and the results are perfectly serviceable. The problem is, the more you use it, the more frustrating it becomes. It's a basic tool, and it's not as easy to use as it might be.

Mindful of this, TechSmith ported its popular Windows screen-capture tool on to the Mac platform. It can capture the desktop, windows, scrolling windows and regions, instantly or via a user-defined delay, all with single keystrokes. There are handy editing tools too: customisable elements for drawing attention to parts of the grabbed images, special effects such as borders, shadows and perspective, plus the ability to combine images simply by dragging one on to another – all with layers, enabling you to easily put together customised screens.

Finished images can be dragged and dropped directly into other applications, including Office and iWorks, plus there are options for sharing via the web, email or FTP too. All grabs are held in a capture tray, for easy retrieval and reviewing, and all unsaved grabs are automatically stored too, just in case.

Once installed, Snagit resides in two places: a camera icon in the menu bar, plus a handy, yet unobtrusive, tab on the right of the screen: click it to access the key options you need, such as whether or not to include the cursor and what hotkey to use. Elect to capture a window, and Snagit will arrange all open windows allowing you to easily click the one you wish to grab – it's this attention to detail that makes it a major step up from the bundled Grab tool, and one that will appeal to those who regularly create and edit screenshots.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.41

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.19.41 

• Adding contacts using WhatsApp is now easier. You can enter a phone number and check if it's on WhatsApp before saving it. Tap "New Chat" > "New Contact" to get started.
