CloudApp Screenshot and screen capture App

The Number One Screen Capture App

Not all screen captures are created equal. Great screen capture softwares understand that tedious work calls for a better screen capture app. The problem is simple. Sometimes a detail on the screen is difficult to screen capture and made even more challenging by having to switch screens just to get to open a screen capture app. It’s important the taking the screen capture is as easy as possible.

Streamlined Screen Recorder

What makes CloudApp the most streamlined screen capture app is that you never have to close out of your screen, search for your app, or hit 4 hotkeys at once while trying to get the perfect (or hard to capture) shot. The Cloud icon is saved to the top right of your menu bar and a simple point and click takes the screen capture. It automatically saves its own link to your clipboard so it’s ready to share.

While some screen capture apps make it difficult to screen capture video, CloudApp lets you screen capture anything you see on your screen: GIFs, video, images and more. Once you’ve clicked and captured, it’s simple to drag and drop your screenshot into your favorite communication platform without having to fumble with emails, attachments, or even searching your desktop for the latest shot. Simply head to your toolbar and drag the image into your favorite integrated app or email.
