Nearly 20 years ago Snagit was introduced for Windows and it has quite a following. It has always been very successful as a Windows utility so it’s odd that it has taken so long to come to the Mac, but it is here finally and worth the wait.
The release version of Snagit for Mac OS X, a screen capture and image-editing utility, is now shipping after spending a year in beta. It’s a bit expensive at $49.95, but I think it is worth the money especially after years of using it in a corporate environment along with a slew of co-workers. Now I’ll have access to it on both platforms.
However, although Snagit on the Mac features the core feature set of the Windows version, that many know and love, it doesn’t have all the features of the award-winning Snagit 10 for Windows. Perhaps that’s why the Windows version is included for free. The serial number you purchase works on both platforms.
The great people at TechSmith want you to stop using wanna-be screencasting applications and start using proper software to make your presentations much more professional. So the company is giving away four copies of its Camtasia screencasting software (worth $99) and five copies of its quick-video recording and sharing app, Jing Pro.
