Audion and Transmit maker
have updated their desktop doodling application Desktastic to v3.0. The new version is “now actually somewhat useful,” according to the ever-witty crew at Panic.

Desktastic enables Mac OS X users to draw directly on their desktop, and version 3.0 adds support for Wacom tablets, auto-saving of drawings on quit, the ability to print drawings, a toolbar with configurable positioning, and a “drawing layer” preference that enables you to “tuck” your drawings out of the way if need be.
Desktastic is a fun doodling tool, but Panic noted that some of its customers have found utility for it as well — educators can use it to annotate and visually describe their screens during lectures, for example. Panic also said that ABC News producers have considered using Desktastic for real-time diagramming during professional sporting events, too.
Desktastic 3.0 is a free upgrade for registered users. New users will pay US$12.95.
