What highlighting tools for Mac that I can use when I demo my product?

I need a tool to draw boxes, pointers, etc when I demo a product. It should freeze the active screen and allows me to draw boxes and arrows while I talk through the features of my product.

    I'm not sure from the question if you're asking about something that can do that during a live presentation, or just allow you to edit after recording your screen. If you mean 'live', I'm not sure, but Screenflow provides a decent amount of tools to help create good screen casts. You can pause the video portion ('freeze' it) while the audio track carries on, and you can add in mouse highlighting, add shape overlays, text, etc. Have used screenflow from v3 to v6 and still find I fall back to it multiple times per month for various projects.

    You could just capture the current screen in Skitch (⌘+shift+5), while screensharing, annotate the screenshot with what you want to highlight (Skitch is the fastest tool I know of to annotate a screenshot in a readable way, with text, rectangles, circles and arrows). When you're done, discard your screenshot and resume your demo?
