This is dynamite. I am a student and it is by far the most useful. It has a few hiccups, but that is to be expected, I really have found this useful, if one of these was really cleaned up and pushed towards students I think it would do really well.
it can work on mac
Working on MacOs 10.11 Capitan Ok, so far
I found that every time I tap with 3 fingers a snapshot will appear but actually I just want to look up a world in dictionary. Can the snapshot function be turned off?
Better then build in os x viewer, if only there was a night reading theme Needs one more thing that build in viewer is missing! The ability to change the background color of the paper to any RGB color one want's
