Bug Highlighting App Bugshot Updated With Blur Tool And Other Improvements
Bugshot has just received its first update, which brings a couple of new features along with other improvements. Released just a week ago by Instapaper creator Marco Arment under his Full City banner, Bugshot is a Skitch-like app designed specifically for reporting bugs on iOS. With the app, you can easily annotate screenshots to point out visual issues in iOS apps, such as rendering bugs in iOS 7. The first update to Bugshot introduces a new Blur tool that lets you pixelate sensitive information in screenshots before sharing them. And speaking of sharing, it's now easier to share screenshots from Bugshot to other apps, including Dropbox, thanks to its newly added support for iOS' "Open In…" sharing protocol.

In addition, it delivers miscellaneous interface improvements and bug fixes, including a fix for the ironic rendering bug in Bugshot's initial version pointed out by Arment:
I added the grid overlay at the last minute to solve a tricky problem: how can you make it clear that you’re displaying a screenshot at actual size with your own additional UI on top? I think this solution works well, but I completely neglected to test it in landscape, and the grid overlay doesn’t properly expand to the screen’s full width. Isn’t that embarrassing? Anyway, it’s fixed for 1.1.Bugshot 1.1. is available now in the App Store as a free update or as a new $0.99 download. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 6.0 or later. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
