Create stunning video tutorials or screencasts to reach your online audience in a more personal way.

Easy to use and great export quality
I discovered this app while searching for an easy way to record animated GIFs.
The editing tools are simple but work as advertised. You can basically just trim and crop.
Export quality is really great (especially for GIFs which usually look a bit bland).
The app also supports mic and cam recording which work great when doing “normal” (non-GIF) screencasts. Couldn’t find a way to record computer audio though.
