Flamory helps you capture and store screenshots from Walkaround by pressing a single hotkey. It will be saved to a history, so you can continue doing your tasks without interruptions. Later, you can edit the screenshot: crop, resize, add labels and highlights. After that, you can paste the screenshot into any other document or e-mail message.

Application info

Walkaround is a variant of Wave, based on the Apache Wave code base, that runs on App Engine. Walkaround can import waves from wave.google.com to allow users to keep working with their data after wave.google.com is shut down.

Much of the walkaround code is not specific to Wave, but factored out as a separate, more general collaboration layer that manages shared live objects. These objects can be modified by multiple clients at the same time, with changes made by any client immediately broadcast to all others. The Wave application is built on top of this, but the live collaboration layer is flexible enough to support other applications. See the design overview.

Walkaround supports live collaborative rich-text editing, diff-on-open, in-line replies, user avatars, wave gadgets, attachments, full text search, and we are working on robots as well as inbox management features like archiving and muting. For now, it does not support Wave extensions, federation, private replies, or folder management, but these features could be added. See the feature roadmap.

Integration level may vary depending on the application version and other factors. Make sure that user are using recent version of Walkaround. Please contact us if you have different integration experience.
