    CloudApp 4.0

    Lightning fast media sharing and screengrabs

    Kate52Head of Social @ GitHub · Written
    I love Cloudapp. The record a gif feature is rad af. They just added in annotations in the app, which works really well (they used to only be in the web interface). It's great for quickly capturing something and then throwing into slack. I appreciate that this is a company that's been around for a while (I can trust they will be around & continue to update/fix bugs).

    I love Cloudapp because it's one of those "evergreen apps" that just works. I've been using it as long as I can remember— at least five years now. It's so easy to use, with no friction. Everything about it is clear, simple and effective. Some of my favorite uses are sharing links for images and recording short videos (like demos for new features).

    Monosnap

    Fast & easy screenshot and annotation tool

    Monosnap has the best annotation tool that I've found. The upload ability isn't as easy as Cloudapp's though. Takes more config and I often have issues with it whenever I update Mac OS. Still definitely a great tool, though.

    I've been using Snappy for quite some time and always found it a no brainer. No file to save, simply paste the auto-generated link to share the snap with everyone.

    I've never looked back since I installed SnappyApp. It lives on your menu bar, let you annotate/draw/write on every screenshot, resize, copy & paste directly with the classic shortcuts (no need to save the file). You can even access your library from wherever and find all the snapshot you ever took.

    I use Skitch to annotate screenshots on Mac and iOS. It's really easy to use.

    The easiest way to share files

    Record screenshots and short screencasts as movies/gifs and it uploads them and gives you a short link. You can annotate images and I love that I can use a custom domain

    I'm a bit biased, but I actually can't do anything without Screenie. It's a must-have.
