Everything You Need in a Single Screenshot App for Mac

CloudApp puts the tools you need to communicate with your team into one easy-to-use screenshot app. Instead of using the built in Mac screenshot functionality, saving an image to your desktop, and opening it in another app to annotate it, CloudApp's mac screenshot app puts all of these steps at your fingertips in just one simple Mac screenshot app.

The Best Snipping Tool for Teams

Capture, share, and annotate screenshots to collaborate with your team more effectively. Whether you are in marketing, sales, customer support, or a web developer or in design, don’t just explain a problem or report a bug—use CloudApp's snipping tool equivalent in place of the Mac screenshot shortcut to capture an image, and immediately annotate it with lines, shapes, arrows, blur, emoji, and more. Then use the drag and drop feature to share your new, annotated images via email, Google Docs, Microsoft Office, or your team’s other productivity tools.
