What is screen capturing?

Screen capturing software is an essential tool all businesses should use when communicating with colleagues, customers, and others. It can help simplify explanations by providing visual content that’s easier to digest than lengthy descriptions. It can be used to refer to ideas, projects, external websites, and much more without using a description that explains how to navigate to the specific content. Screen captures allow others to see a glimpse of what you see–meaning they can be particularly useful for sharing snippets, such as what your screen looks like from your device,  personal account, browser or software. Sharing perspective is key for teams, and screen captures are a great way to contribute and communicate effectively. 

CloudApp’s Screen Capture

By using CloudApp’s screen capture tool, you can communicate up to 3x faster. Taking screen captures is made easy with CloudApp: simply drag your mouse to select the portion you wish to capture or choose to capture your entire screen. A link is automatically copied to your clipboard, making it easy for you to upload and share with others. Because security is our first priority, all screen captures created with CloudApp are fully encrypted and stored within the cloud. All data centers are monitored 24/7 and penetration tests are regularly conducted.

You can also spice up your screen capture using other tools offered by CloudApp, such as annotations. This feature allows you to add arrows, circles, lines, drawings, text and even emojis to any screen capture. Get your point across even quicker by calling attention to details within your capture to enhance overall clarity. The annotation tool can also be used to blur out any sensitive content or irrelevant information you don’t want included in your screen capture. Because CloudApp is available for both MacOS and Windows users, collaborating and sharing is easier than ever. You can also use your iPhone to view and share content using the iOS app.
