OK, it only costs $1.99. But, if you're looking for a basic screen cap app, Precise Screenshot is not bad. It has some good features like sequential numbering of captures, the ability to create preset capture sizes, and the ability to capture your screen in x seconds. Unfortunately, when I clicked Preview I was unable to see what I was about to capture. The window was blank until AFTER the capture. There's also no mechanism to capture menus or open windows like other more full-featured screen cap apps. For now I suggest saving your $1.99 and waiting until the folks at Tension Software add more features and fix those that don't work. Stick with Snapz Pro or one of the other more mature products. As they say, you get what you pay for!

Precise indeed, detailed and easy to use

Why spend any money on a screen capture app? Because it’s exact, easy to use, thoughtful designed with exactly (and all) the optioins you might need but not bloatware.

I hope they add the preference to keep the icon in the menu bar when the app’s not running, but it’s five stars for me regardless.

why nickname?? ,

just what I needed

While I cannot believe that the Mac OS screenshot options don’t include an option for fixed aspect ratio, thankfully this app is available. Well thought out and a must have - especially for the price.
