Sweet little app - Every week I do a lot of online meetings. When sharing my desktop I've needed something that I could use to quickly draw a line or a circle or whatever to point something out -- ie., to highlight what I was talking about. This app does just that. It has an easy to remember shortcut so it's simple to clear the highlighting. If you're running a VM you can highlight on that too as long as your VM is not displaying in full screen mode. When I first downloaded it I had a quick question for the developer. I've never had anyone respond as quickly and courtesly. The best money I've ever spent. Maybe it's because I'm using a later version, but I've never had it crash.
Terrible - Pros: it costs 0.99 Cons: (1) You can not switch apps when Highlight is running. Ok, you can, but you can not use them. Really stupid. (2) You can not change line color. Ok, you can, but for _all_ lines on the screen. Really stupid. (3) You can not save what you have done. Ok, you can, but just by making a screenshot. Really… (you know). (4) Crashes all the time. Ok, it really crashes all the time. I want my money back.

Basic Highlighting app - Application is a bit buggy: System Color palette will not close after selecting color. Then, it takes getting used to it. I did expect a small tab-like screen control to appear on screen for quick an easy configuration. SImilar to a OneNote drawing ribbon. I have opted for another more advanced app. However, for budget savvy people, this app is sufficient.
