Set Password Activation Time in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, you can now set an amount of time after your Mac goes to sleep or engages the screen saver before it requires a password to log back on. In Leopard, the option was simply to require the password or not. Choose among several increments, between 5 seconds and 4 hours, from System Preferences > Security.

ScreenFlow 3.0

Send Article to a Friend

New from Telestream is ScreenFlow 3.0, a major upgrade to the company’s screencast recording app. The new release brings a number of new features, including compatibility with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. ScreenFlow now allows users to create freehand callouts and annotations anywhere on a video using a brush or rectangle tool. The app’s timeline has received a facelift that provides additional flexibility in editing operations and is complemented by new audio quality controls and filters. Rounding out the update are new export settings, which now include an iPad preset and an option to publish to Vimeo. ($99 new, $29 upgrade, 14.5 MB)

 

New for iOS 8: TextExpander 3 with custom keyboard.
Set up short abbreviations which expand to larger bits of text,
such as “Tx” for “TextExpander”. With the new custom keyboard,
you can expand abbreviations in any app, including Safari and
Mail. <http://smle.us/tetouch3-tb>

I have been using the v3.0 BETA version for a couple months now and the updates are a combination of really cool new features AND some obviously needed standards such as annotations. Bottom line, great product, well worth the cash.

You are lucky. I have used ScreenFlow 2 for some time. ScreenFlow 3 is so filled with bugs (not just on one computer but the 4 we upgraded) that it is unusable.
