Ratings and Reviews

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.

Good app — no audio capture?


I’m able to capture content from my screen to make a screencast losslessly at a selectable framerate—just what I needed.

When capturing content with audio output (videos, for example) the audio being played isn’t captured. Re-aligning audio tracks in post is painful and ideally, unnecessary—did I miss a setting?

I’d also like to be able to do partial screen captures in addition to full-screen captures.

Great App - Needs Video Import Function

oc az us

I’ve found this app to be a great tool for exporting really nice animated gifs of screen recordings. It is easy to use and the most receit version works very reliably.

I’ve written reviews prior to this, with suggestions, and the dev team have been listening and have implemented a couple of the suggestions, which is wonderful.

One thing I wish the app could do is provide a way to import a video. Currently, you have to record the video with the app to be able to get an animated gif.

If you could import videos, that would be a huge feature. Imaging importing iPhone screen recordings and using Claquette to export the animated gifs? That would be a greaet feature.

Developer Response

Thank you for your feedback.
I can't promise anything yet, but we are currently investigating import functions. Please keep an eye on the release notes ;)
