    Screen Flow

    Screen recording and editing for Mac

    Julien GomezFounder, EEWORX Β· Written
    Not sure that is the best too, but i used it in the past and he does the job and editing was easy.

    Used this for years. Really high quality but some might think the feature set is a bit too much to deal with if you don't really need much editing. If you want high quality output, this is the one!

    Kap

    Capture your screen

    Simple, Free, Open source, not fully loaded with features, but it has what's needed: GIF/WebM/MP4, capture mouse and highlight clicks, etc

    I don't if it's THE best screen recorder, but I used it for some years now and it has served me well!

  4. Actually, I am shocked that no one mentioned macOS native QuickTime player. It's really easy to use and gets the job done pretty well. Yes, it can also screen record :)

    I've tried lots of different screen recording apps but I always come back to Quicktime!

    CloudApp 4.0

    Lightning fast media sharing and screengrabs

    I use CloudApp for that. Can create either video files or gifs from the recording. Recording a quick gif is my favorite feature. Super useful for sharing something quickly. I believe you need a paid account to record longer videos (I upgraded and use it everyday)

    THE BEST recording app out there for videos, GIFs, and grabbing screenshots. Everything gets saved to the cloud and can be easily downloaded. It's the best.

    The only screen video recording software I have found that is both free and provides enough basic settings and details to meet most needs.

    I love monosnap. It's just great. It also allows you to save your files on dropbox or other cloud services and for that you pay a flat fee. It's dead cheap and good.

    I use this for screen shots - it makes editing them with call outs, boxes, arrows so easy.

    While not a standalone screen recorder, Jumpshare has gif and movie recording built in with a super simple way to share them when you're done.

    QuickCast

    3 Minute Screencasts

    Great for quick recordings and gives a bit more options than what's built into Quicktime
