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)

Version 4.3.3

This release is is a fairly small one. We took some time to address some issues that were affecting your experience using CloudApp!

Here's a quick list of what's included:

- Fixed an obscure issue where Slack channels would duplicate on our Share to Slack module.
- Upgraded the drag and drop experience on our Annotate module so you can share your annotations more easily.
- GIFs should no longer play at a higher speed than the one they were recorded at.
- When you're recording your beautiful face using our app, you can now choose between mirrored and natural display modes.
- A bunch of code has also been cleaned. You don't need to know this!

Fantastic tool for sharing information


I’ve been using CloudApp professionally and personally for years now and it is an indispensable tool. I can take quick GIF animations of changes I’ve made to a product and post them to Github. I can annotate mockups and share them quickly with my team. I can even use it to share quick, funny annotated screenshots of anything I see on my computer and share them with friends. The pro version is worth every penny.

Worth the cost for the productivity gain


I never write reviews but seeing all these 1-star reviews because this isn’t free to get the full features is insane.

I take dozens of screenshots, gifs, etc. a day as I’m a front-end developer. Cloud App has been absolutely critical to my sanity as a tool for capturing, annotating, and sharing screenshots, interactions, etc. with other co-workers and clients.

The base level subscription infinitely expands the capabilities of the app and is well-worth the cost.

If you’re someone who only takes a screenshot a day, or needs to record an hour long webinar, look elsewhere. But if you need to take hundreds of screenshots, gifs, and small video walkthroughs a month, look no further - CloudApp is your best best on the market.

My go-to screen capture tool!


I love CloudApp. This is a really simple tool that saves me a ton of time. It’s great for quickly capturing screen grabs to send visual examples to clients and get us on the same page. I simply press shift + command (apple) + 5, and then it automatically uploads an image to my account and copies the link to my clipboard, and then I paste it in the window to share.
