Everything You Need in a Single Screenshot Tool for Mac

CloudApp puts the tools you need to communicate with your team into one easy-to-use screenshot tool. 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 tool puts all of these steps at your fingertips in just one simple Mac screenshot tool.

The Best Mac 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 snipping tool 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.

Using CloudApp as Your Mac Screen Capture App

To get started using CloudApp’s Mac screen capture app, follow these simpel steps:

  • Download CloudApp for Mac

  • Hover over an image or screenshot in the CloudApp menu and select ‘Annotate’.
  • That’s it! You can now take a screen capture with your Mac keyboard, but instead of just having an screen capture image saved on your desktop, CloudApp will open the image for annotation, and you can save it to the cloud.

  • In the preferences section of the CloudApp, set the keyboard shortcut for screenshots.

Other Screen Capture Tools Don’t Stand A Chance

As you learned above, the right screen recorder software can do so much more for you and your business than simply save a screenshot to your computer. That’s the way of the past, yet companies such as Techsmith, claiming to be top-of-class screen capture software, require downloading and installing 3 of their tools (Snagit, Jing, Screencast) to have all the features that CloudApp comes with in the all-in-one native app. Other tools including Vidyard or Wistia, simply miss out on valuable workflow collaboration tools, analytics to help you grow your business and customization capabilities. Others such as Loom, Soapbox or GoVideo, are limited to Chrome Extensions and serve no further business function or value beyond of a quick video or a screenshot.‍

CloudApp also serves as more than just a DropBox type file storage center. It also won’t cost your five times the amount of money for half the features like a Vidyard or a Droplr that provides little to no creative functions. With CloudApp you can let your creativity flow with video annotation or dual screen and webcam recording.

Still Don’t Believe Us? See For Yourself

Don’t restrict your creativity or slow down your workflow even more with antiquated screen recording software. It’s time to step into the 21st century and catch up with this on-demand world. Sign up for a free CloudApp account and try it for yourself to see just how fruitful screen recording can be for your teams and your bottom line. CloudApp is the future of visual communication — an essential screen recording tool for every industry where speed and clarity are essential.
