What's the best way to screen-cap a GIF of your own on Mac OS X?

And what is your favorite workflow for using it? I'd also like a solution for iPhone, but I have a feeling that's not as easy :)

    I like CloudApp quite a bit. It offers a ton of different functionality, but a big feature is their screenshot/gif capture.

    Definitely cloud app. Makes recording gif's super easy. After recording, I'll generally upload them to ezgif.com for editing/optimizing.

    I bought GIFMaker after seeing it on PH about a year ago. I think it was a couple bucks. It's worked perfectly every time I've needed it. Super simple and seems extra-optimized for cat gifs.

    CloudApp just launched annotate -- I must use it 40+ times a day to make GIFs for tweets/products. Super convenient when it's right on your Mac's menu bar

    I've tried several programs and this is by far the easiest. It's like Awesome Screenshot but with GIF screencasts. Super quick and easy for anyone.
