Best thing ever. I use it a lot when product testing, it's so much easier to explain when I find a bug to our developers, also works great for recording calls and doing demos or tutorials.

Pros:

Easy to use, FREE, unlimited videos, can take notes , and many other things.

Cons:

None! They are working on new updates and features that they share on their roadmap, it's awesome.

I use loom to create screen recordings to send to customers who use our software. It is the best way to answer customers questions about how to do something with a software product. Far superior to explaining via email or with support articles. Not only is it better, it is faster! Yes, it is faster to use Loom's chrome for a screen recording walking the customer through the process than it is to type an email instructing them. Love Loom.

Pros:

The best way to communicate with customers!

Cons:

There are a couple of bugs with the chrome extension. The desktop version is out soon and will and solve this :)

Such an amazing service. I recommend them to everyone.

I was always freaking out sending screenshots, and email sequences. Now it is very easy to record short "how to" or show bugs to the dev team.

Pros:

Easy to use

Cons:

Force you to record videos (sometimes a screenshot is enough) / could use an app for mobile

Great app! Very useful for filmed tutorials, team training and anything else involving screen sharing

Pros:

Easy to use, simple and easy to share recoreded videos

Cons:

Slightest internet connectivity issues can lose viddo

I use Loom for customer interactions, instructional purpose and screen recording for training. What most ppl miss are the TONS of use cases for this amazing solution! For example, do you have a "callout" that needs more insight for users/customers on a PDF document you are sharing? Rather than using the comment feature, why not share the callout by using Loom? In my experience, MANY customers are apprehensive to even open a doc with comments for fear they may make a mistake or delete content, etc. By opening a PDF in a Chrome tab and then using the Loom video to call out or clarify/elaborate on certain points, everyone is on the same page--literally! Great solution with lots of use cases!

Pros:

Intuitive interface, Great UX, trimming ability, ease of use

Cons:

They are definitely a top option

Product @ Quotient

Generally a pencil tool, though flexible is too hard to use and doesn't look good no matter how good you get at wielding it. I would likely not use the pencil tool for external communications - that would only suffice for internal explanations, not professional demos.

Pros:

I like that all the tools-screencasting, video camera, markup and link sharing are all rolled into one.

Cons:

The markup tool doesn't have shapes, only a pencil.

If it works consistently.
It needs to have the ability to record just one window and annotate on it at once. Right now you have to decide which one you want and use the corresponding product (app vs extension).
Best ever - use it every day multiple times!!!

Love how easy loom is to use!
I am a CEO and email marketing geek.
I'm a huge fan of the product. Communicating with team members and customers while walking through the steps of my product could not be easier. Also organizing folders so you can go back and reuse videos is a great way to get your team working independently. Keep up the great work!
