Kap is an open-source macOS screen recording app. Quickly capture and share high quality GIF, MP4, WebM and APNG files. Export to Giphy, imgur, S3 or copy directly to your clipboard and more using community created plugins.
Best GIF and screen recorder, simple to use, lives in the menu barCons:
May be too simple for some
Been using Kap since the start and after having gone through 10+ GIF recording tools and this is the only one that's been giving me satisfactory results. It doesn't give you full control over color algorithms and rendering results etc, but I suspect most people won't want that.Jon Øvrebø Dubielzyk has used this product for one year.
Easy GIF Capture, Highly ConfigurableCons:
Moderately large download
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.Tierney Cyren has used this product for one year.
