As Windows 8.1 is set to roll out around the world, Facebook has released their very first app for the new OS marking the first time they have supported it with a native application.
Think about screen grabbing and two ideas probably spring to mind – hitting the Prnt Scr key or using SnagIt. Taking the later route is a little primitive, while opting to using the latter means having to part with a little cash. SnapCrab - yes, crab, not grab – is a free, highly configurable screen grabbing tool that could just become your new best friend.
At its heart, SnapCrab is very much what you would expect, but it also goes far beyond the capabilities of many other similar tools, and all without requiring you to part with a penny. Whether you are a blogger, a web site owner, a writer or just have some other need to taker screenshots on a regular basis, this may be the tool that makes you rethink the way you work.
Back in December there was a brief flurry of excitement when a pre-release version of Facebook Messenger for Windows was leaked. Sadly the appearance of the software was short-lived and it wasn’t long before it disappeared again.
Three short months later, the app has been officially unveiled, and for anyone who just can’t get enough of the world’s most popular social network, it’s a seriously useful addition to the desktop.
