Create Quality Documentation With Visuals

You can write perfect code, but if nobody knows how to implement it, it’s all but worthless. Fortunately, CloudApp’s image annotation feature makes illustrating implementation processes a walk in the park. Stop wasting your time describing code conventions. Simply use CloudApp to take a screenshot and annotate the resulting image with arrows, circles, text boxes, and emojis to clarify directions and get your points across. Visuals make documentation easier. Download CloudApp and make the visual content creation process easier too.

Visual content like annotated images will make the documentation process much more convenient for your web development team. Fortunately, CloudApp makes the annotating of images quick and easy. Just follow these five steps:

There’s definitely a better way! Use CloudApp’s screen recording feature to capture bugs red-handed the first time through. Then send the resulting footage to your colleagues so they know exactly what issues to fix without having to go through the entire process themselves. Your development team productivity will skyrocket, we promise.
