Zoom It 1.2 for OS X - On-Screen Magnifying Loupe Gets Performance Boost

in Utility (E)

[prMac.com] Monroe, New York - Appetit today is proud to announce a new version of its popular ZoomIt screen-magnifying app for Mac OS X. The release includes enhanced performance in addition to other key features, such as an easily identifiable black and white icon on the task bar, retina display support, a loupe-sized indicator in the drop-down menu, and the ability to hide the loupe when saving a screenshot. The developers at Appetit knew the next upgrade would include OpenGL support to boost performance, and support for mountain lion (10.8), but the other features came as a result of user feedback.

With the release of version 1.2, users can still take advantage of the simple yet powerful functionality that they have come to expect from Zoom It; the app that makes it easy to view your Mac's screen through a virtual magnifying glass, with out having to zoom in the entire screen. Zoom It's users include artists, engineers, designers, presenters, photographers, project collaborators and people who rely on corrective lenses. The app's handy loupe can still magnify any area of the user's screen from 5 to 45%, making it far superior to the screen zoom that is built into OS X.

* Fixed performance issue.
