Share faster.

CloudApp is the quickest and easiest way to share any file, screenshot, screencast, links and more with your team, clients and followers.

Drag a file to the CloudApp icon in the menubar or use our shortcut key to grab a screenshot or screencast and we take care of the rest. A link to the file will automatically be copied to your clipboard that you can share via Twitter, IM, email, or smoke signals. While other applications make sharing a chore, CloudApp stays out of your way, adapting to your specific needs. CloudApp is the fastest way to share.

Customer Reviews

Great app & service, except for the pricing

CloudApp is beautifully designed, it doesn't get in your way and it's a prime example of software that does just one thing, but does that thing exceptionally well. I love the customizable keyboard shortcuts and the app is generally a joy to use. But there's one thing that bothers me about the service: the pricing.

I am a casual user, I don't need hundreds of uploads a day. But sometimes I do need more than 10 and I'd be willing to pay for the occasional use case where I need 15, maybe 20 uploads. But 10 bucks a month? For a couple more uploads? I can't justify that. The "Rain" plan, the lowest of the three plans, offers way more than I need - give me a plan that serves my needs and costs a buck or two a month and I'm in.
I don't need unlimited uploads, I don't need custom branding or domains and I don't need to share 500MB files, that's overkill for me. Please introduce a plan for casual users at a reasonable price, you might win over a LOT of free users who would never sign up for a pro account with the current pricing.

Great App - Don’t be confused by others comments.

Super awesome UX for sharing partial or full screen captures. A couple key presses, select the area you want to screenshot, and in the next instant the short url to that image is automatically copied to your clipboard. The same goes for sharing other files, just drag and drop them on the CloudApp icon and have a link immediately.

Don’t heed others' warnings about pricing, they are simply confused. This is NOT Dropbox, $10/mo for 500mb file sizes does not mean that you are paying to have a hard limit of 500mb for all of your uploads combined. This is a PER ITEM limit. It means if you want to share a huge binary or zip file for some reason, you need a plan that supports that size of file. If all you use this is for is the superior UX for screenshot sharing, you should be gladly paying $10/mo for this! Admit it, you spend more on coffee than this every week.

Doesn’t work with Yosemite

The program used to work well, but even before Yosemite was released, uploads were failing. Customer support is almost non-existent. Empty promises with no solution. I would suggest that buying this app is not only a waste of your money but also your time. They have repeatedly said they are working on it but the app fails the majority of the time, when you need it the most. I seldom complain, but in my opinion, Apple should pull this app from its store. I paid for a year’s subscription and had so much trouble that I asked for a refund. They in turn apologized and said they’d give me another year for free. What good is two years of a failing app? I’ve now done what I should have done first, got an upgrade for Dropbox that works all the time!
