I've been using loom for ages. Can't imagine how I'd share product updates and bug reports without it. Such a powerful communication tool!

@tomfitch @susanacigano is there any update on this? It's now 6-months on and still waiting for access..
@nathdigitech I just got the invite email. Had to search for what I had signed up for and it led me here.

I love loom. I have used Quicktime to record my screen for years, but the whole post production to upload to dropbox to share was a hassle.

Loom has saved me time and with its' comments and notification when someone has watched my video is a fantastic add on

I love Loom

Pros:

Fantastic way to record my screen and share

Cons:

That it has taken this long to get to a desktop app =)

Before Loom, sharing a video of a product bug was a daunting tasks. You would need to either use Quicktime on Mac or some other complicated software to record your screen (maybe if your lucky the audio would work) and that would give you a big old 500+ MB video file for a decent sized video. At this point you lose faith since you need to share this and it's not getting any smaller even if you try all the compression tricks. You end up uploading it for a half hour to G Drive and send a link to your co-worker... Now you can literally click the Chrome extension, click start, record and then share. DONE.

Pros:

It just works and the sharing and commenting functionalities are flawless.

Cons:

Sometimes there are bugs when recording on Chrome but this might have been resolved with the new releases.
