Screen capture for designers/ developers

Snipaste is a portable screenshot tool aimed at developers and designers.

The program enables capturing UI elements: a button, a panel, a menu, maybe the entire application window.

Selection is automatic, and you might have seen something similar with other capture tools. You press the capture hotkey (F1 by default, oddly), move the mouse around the interface, elements are highlighted as you hover over them, and left-clicking snips that area.

Unlike other screenshot tools, your capture doesn't appear in another window. Instead it overlays the captured area of the screen and you're able to draw shapes or arrows on it, highlight areas, apply mosaic or blurring effects, add new text, and generally edit it in place.

When you're finished, the annotated capture may be copied to the clipboard, or saved as an image file.

Unusually, you can also paste the clipboard image - whether it's saved by Snipaste or not - back onto the screen as a floating window.

If you'd like to see how a toolbar or some other UI element looks on a program, this allows you to paste an image onto the screen and view it in-place.


Snipaste doesn't have the power of a full-strength screen capture tool, but the in-place editing and the ability to paste images onto the screen as floating windows are major pluses. If you're interested, check it out.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.51

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 2.17.51

• When typing text in a chat, you can tap and hold to select the text and easily bold, strikethroughor italacize it.
