Web Snapper lets you capture web pages - exactly as they appear in your browser. You can send them to a file, as images or vector-based, multi-page PDFs. It captures the whole web page - eliminating the need to cut, paste and crop multiple screen-shots when trying to create an image or PDF.
[FIX] When sending snaps to th eprinter, the application would sometime crash. Fixed.
[FIX] The MacAppStore version had issues saving through the new Apple security features. Fixed.

Very cool app - Easily the best web snapshot tool out there. It keeps page formatting correct for the most part, where others will wrap content that doesn't fit in a page width. The ability to choose different snapshot formats is also very nice. The "Save to Multipage PDF" feature is a complete winner!
Several issues right out of the gate - Just downloaded this and installed the Safari extension. Opened Web Snapper, then went to a page in Safari and clicked the WS extension button. A new tab quickly appears and goes away. In WS’ green drop area, the spinning wheel begins and never ends. I have to cancel. Then if I drag and drop the URL (WS’ least preferred way of doing a web snap) into the green area, I am able to create a PDF. The problem is that I did not tick off the “Use pagination” box in WS’ preferences, so the resulting PDF is one very long and very thin page. WS’ help at their web site suggests that for thin pages, use pagination. So I go to preferences and tick that box. When I click save, nothing happens. Cancel does nothing. I then try to Quit WS, but that doesn’t work. I end up doing a force quit. I get back into WS, pagination IS turned on, so I snap the page using the drag & drop method. The result is that the first page of the PDF shows the left side of the web page, and the second page shows the right side. The third page of the PDF shows the next “page” of the left side of the web screen, and so on. So I zoom the Safari screen out to get smaller print and try snapping again. But the result is the same. Note: this was using the new version of Safari (7.0.4) which I downloaded this morning - so perhaps their Safari extension is not compatible with it. WS’ help page suggests that using the browser extension fixes the page size problem, but as I indicated, the extension does not work on my newest version of Safari. Finally I go to the WS web site and click on the Forum button to see if others have a fix for my problem. The forum page tells me 1) the forum is empty, 2) there are no topics there, and 3) “I must be logged in to create a new topic”. However, there is no link that I can find to log in or to create a new user account. Not a good experience. I’ll just wait for the devs to fix their bugs - they are bound to get it right sooner or later. But for now, I can’t use Web Snapper.

It Doesn't Capture Things Exactly as they Appear - I was hoping (based on the description) that this app would essentially take a long screen shot and automatically paginate it as a PDF. Unfortunately, what it actually does is strip out most of the same stuff that File->Print-> Save as PDF does. And doing that doesn't cost $15.
