[prMac.com] FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Wednesday; February 21, 2007
Blue Mango Learning Systems of Valencia, California has released ScreenSteps version 1.0 for Mac OS 10.3 or higher. ScreenSteps makes documenting and teaching software easier then ever before.
"Product documentation needs to do more showing and less telling," said Greg DeVore, company co-founder. "Videos can be good but they are very labor intensive to create. ScreenSteps allows you to show someone how to do something with a minimal amount of effort. We created it because we needed it."
With ScreenSteps running, users capture an image of each step of the process they are teaching using the built-in Mac OS screen capture utility or most third-party screen capture utilities. ScreenSteps automatically imports these images and organizes them in the order they were captured. Users can then go back, add text, annotate/crop images, and then export to PDF or HTML. Users can even create their own HTML/XML export templates.
ScreenSteps is currently listed on Apple's Mac OS X Downloads page as a Staff Pick and is the featured download in the Productivity Tools section.
ScreenSteps is targeted at anyone who has to document software applications including technical writers, instructors, software/web developers, technical support professionals, etc.
ScreenSteps includes a full-featured 15 day free trial and is available for $39.95 ($29.95 academic price).
Blue Mango Learning Systems develops e-learning and documentation software.
