Some installation instructions. Confirmed my MacBook Pro met tech requirements, downloaded and installed product... but it does not work. No troubleshooting guidelines anywhere, nothing. Useless.

Was fine to make a video, but hung up my computer at one point (had to restart) as it was throwing lots of exceptions. Also had trouble exporting to mp4 on multiple occasions

It would be great if Kap allows to choose area of screencast using mouse cursor

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.

It’s lovely to see how the 2nd version of the app evolved. The new export options are great and very useful and the review sequence is a nice addon as well. I use it on a regular basis each day for short screen recordings and love the product. Thanks for building it!

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.

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.

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
