Ambrosia updates Snapz Pro with Mountain Lion compatibility, more

Ambrosia Software has updated my personal favorite screen capture tool, Snapz Pro X, to version 2.5. It’s a free update for registered users and available for immediate download from the Web site.

Snapz Pro X can be used to capture customized screenshots as well as record what’s happening on your screen as a QuickTime movie – terrific if you need to capture video for a presentation or training, for example.

Up until this release, Snapz Pro wasn’t fully compatible with Mountain Lion, so this is an important update for OS X 10.8 users. Ambrosia says that it also “rewrote the product from scratch” using modern Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), so the app now includes full compatibility for Retina displays and sports an improved video capture engine.
