A simple macOS tool for briefly hightlighting a small portion of a screen, zooming and centering it on the screen until dismissed. Great for presentations or just quickly checking the pixels on a design.

What’s New

Version 1.5

Fixes an issue where opening the Preferences multiple times could cause the hot key to stop working.

Great app for building presentations!

I have been using Screenflow to record screencasts, which I love, but I found myself spending an exhuberant amount of time in post-production zooming in and out to show important sections of the screen. Snippose has greatly simplified my screencast creation, allowing me to perform the zoom-ins while creating the recording. Very handy application - and I agree with the other reviewer that this should be part of the operating system. Highly recommended for anyone creating presentations, especially for those giving live presentations that don’t permit post-production!

Should be built into macOS

Such a useful, and well-done, utility! Image smoothing is impressive too.

Love this tool !!!!

I love this tool and this is AMAZING for my live code presentations.

There are 2 issues I need to find out if I can address:

1. When I change any of the preferences, I have to reset the hot key, or else the hot key does not work.
before I started toying with the preferences,

2. I was able to perform a screen grab (command+shift+3) and it would capture the call-out. I also have tried Snagit, and Snapz Pro X to capture, but nothing will capture the call-out. Now I cannot seem to screen grab the call-out at all. *** This is very sad, as it did work a few times, now it does not.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the feedback and for trying it out.

The latest update, Version 1.5, should fix the preferences problem you describe. If you are still having problems with screen capture, please contact me on Twitter, @samuelwford.
