CloudApp - Screen Recorder, GIF Maker, Screenshots

By Linebreak

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


CloudApp is the world's leading visual communication platform. Create and share files, annotated screenshots, make GIFs, HD videos, screen recordings and screencasts on your Desktop — and upload them to the Cloud.

Drag a file to CloudApp or use our hotkey shortcuts to capture a screenshot, GIF, or HD screen-recording. A link to the file will automatically be copied to your clipboard that you can paste to Slack, Twitter, IM, email, or smoke signals.

"So simple that you use it without realizing it's there." — Tim Van Damme (Dropbox)

“CloudApp streamlines our sharing and communication. I no longer waste time trying to explain complex workflows or edits to be made, or get mired in file attachments. Instead I just constantly use CloudApp to capture, comment, and share via a handy link. CloudApp is indispensable to the efficiency of our business, and they’re fantastic to work with.” — Daniel Odio (ShareThis)

"CloudApp is extremely useful, beautiful, and so very simple. Exactly what you want in a utility." — Mark Jardine (Tapbots)

"CloudApp is file sharing the way it should be: simple and powerful with a handy keyboard shortcut integration that my fingers tend to stay glued to, all bundled into an elegant UI." — Brian Hoff (The Design Cubicle)

“Few apps come across my path that become instantly integrated into my workflow. Cloudapp is one of them. I honestly can't imagine using my computer without it. It's critical to the way I work.” — Mike Gowen (Delighted)

Customer Reviews

Pretty straight forward great app for such simple task

Why I say great for such a simple task?
Because since I am on Apple products I found small and simple tasks that I am unble to do same way like windows and are so simple! This was one of them and been struggling to do this on the phone.

Searched and went into this and so far, fro my first day so far, it worked well and simple! the sound quality isnt the best but i guess that’s different thing.
But over all, i managed to record more than a hour straight and for that i am thank ful


Honestly the only thing I was disappointed with was that, after recording a full art piece creation (which took about 2 hours recording time up), I was unable to even save the recording because it exceeded the limit and I didn’t want to pay to upgrade. I had no clue that it wouldn’t let me save/download it, which made me quite frustrated. It would have been nice to at least have the chance to download it since I was planning to upload to my YouTube for the first time in forever, but I suppose it isn’t too bad since it’s fair enough to have to pay, else the creators wouldn’t earn anything. Thanks for this brilliant application though!
