Sharpshooter 1.2 released

Sharpshooter update
Kerlmax LLC has released an update to the Sharpshooter screenshot tool. This new version 1.2 addresses a couple of issues that were causing the majority of support emails.

Download Sharpshooter

Customized screenshot names on Snow Leopard
Some users have customized their system to use a non-default name for their screenshots. With Snow Leopard, instead of taking one named "Screen shot 2011-02-06 at 12.32.09 PM.png" it might be named something like "Picture 2011-02-06 at 12.32.09 PM.png". Previously, our suggested workaround was to go back to using the default screenshot name and we provided a small application to change the setting. Now users without the default setting will be able to continue using Sharpshooter.

Mysterious UI locking on trial expiration
Users can test out Sharpshooter with its thirty day fully functional trial. Once the trial period expires, certain features become unavailable. Many users wrote in wondering why the user interface was disabled and locked as the application didn't provide an explanation for the change. With the new version, unregistered copies show a button along the bottom of the renaming window that will countdown the remaining days in the trial period. Clicking on the button sends you to the store so you can purchase a license.

Coming soon
This will likely be the last version of Sharpshooter before the next major release. Sharpshooter 2 is being rebuilt from the ground up. The new app will be dropping support for older OS versions and will require Snow Leopard. Our current plan is to have the app available for purchase from the Kerlmax website and through Apple's Mac App Store. Hopefully it won't be long before it's ready for release.
