I've been using Kap as the absolute screen recorder for quite a good time now, and with this new feature of selecting the screen things got even better


Feature rich, fast, beatiful


Quite heavy app size

Been using Kap since the initial release, and I'm super happy with 2.0. Cannot suggest Kap highly enough, especially if you need to capture GIFs frequently.


Easy GIF Capture, Highly Configurable


Moderately large download

I hated how clunky most other GIF recorders were. With some products, the GIFs generated are hard to find. With Kap, they're always named "Kapture", so I just search for the most recent "Kapture" to post on whatever I'm working on.


Best GIF recorder I've found. Nice interface, works with retina and external displays (many don't). The newest version adds trimming!



The all new Kap is such a beautiful and powerful product. 👏
