I had tried Loom a while back, and it wasn't a fit then. Just tried a trial of the new Pro version and it seems really nice, and the workflow to record a quick information video, bug, support video, or product feedback is fast and slick. The only items that keep it from being perfect for me (and will probably keep me from buying long term) 1. Way too much branding on the video playback page, including a call to action popup and the end of playback. This is going to be confusing to some of the non-tech people I send videos to, and I'm going to spend more time explaining this to them and telling them they didn't really need to create a Loom account than what the product saves me in time. For a free product, brand the heck out of it - but a paid version should allow you to hide most or all of this. I looked in the KB for a way to disable this, but couldn't find it. Sent a message to the team, so hopefully they will come back with something to help. 2. The default "Dock - Dock" video name for every video. Why not at least make this a time / date. I'd probably change this 80% of the time, but it would be nice if the other 20% didn't all have the same video name

Pros:

Great video quality, easy to use, uploads are automatic and fast

Cons:

Even with the Pro account there seems to be a lot of forced Loom Branding and call to actions on the video playback URL

This really does make communication so much easier and quicker. Great for communicating with remote workers and also clients

Pros:

So easy to use and pro version is well worth the $

Cons:

Desktop version takes too long to open (but we're only talking like 5 seconds so not much of a con!)

Hey Flemming! Would you mind sending me an email at vinay@loom.com with your email tied to your Loom account? I'd like to see why the app takes 5 seconds to load for you and cut that time down!
Happy Entrepreneur w a few PH products 🙌

Great audio and video quality. Love the emojis and # view tracking. Very grateful for the Loom PRO invitation. Just downloaded it and can't wait to use the advanced features. Thank You Thank You 🙏🙏🙏

Pros:

I am a Happy Loom user for about two months now. Extremely easy to use and no watermark for this free tool - Awesome!

Cons:

For the regular version, Trim feature has room for improvement. Not a big deal. It may no longer be applicable to the PRO one.

Been using Loom for ~2 years and continually impressed by the use cases - design/ux/ui recordings, communicating with remote peers, video notes for team knowledge base and so much more! The ubiquity on slack, trello, chrome, and desktop is so appreciated. Work life is easier and happier thanks to Loom.

Pros:

Fantastic product. Works flawlessly. Amazing team.

Cons:

None. Loom is a dream come true.

Dean of Online Education

I train adult professors how to create learning videos for their online classes, and Loom has been the easiest for them to get up and running with. With Pro on their desktop they don't need to think about browsers and getting online or worrying about wifi. They can get right to the task. I use Loom Pro to create quick feedback videos during the course development process instead of typing long emails or typing long comments into their Google Doc. Just record a Loom and show them! Faster, more personal, more effective, and they can rewatch any time! Love love love it!

Pros:

So easy to use! Whiteboard capabilities CTA button! Custom thumbnail! Super easy feedback and coaching with the timeline comments!

Cons:

Would love to be able to add transitions between cuts and add CC

Kevin Kelly introduced me to this about 10 days ago. I've found many uses for it in those 10 days. Very personalized.

Pros:

S--P---EE--D! How many gerbils running how many cages in their back room to render Hi Def video like this. Incredible!

Cons:

Um, um, um, hmmmm, nothing yet.

Lead 3D Artist @ Polywork

Would love the ability to tag and label things in a particular video and reference those tags outside the video.

Pros:

Love being able to select an area of my screen to record. Especially helpful when doing design reviews for mobile websites or apps.

Cons:

None for now!

I am hunting

Please add Linux Snap version of pro. Or at least support Ubuntu users.

Pros:

Fantastic tool for demo and creating tutprials

Cons:

Completely ignored the Linux community on the pro version.

I have several video recording tools. This is by far the easiest way to create demonstration videos and get them shared quickly

Pros:

Easy to use, Works multiple devices, inlcuding ChromeOS Clean UI HD recording Call to action button at the end

Cons:

NONE

I use it to send videos to Support when they can see a video of your problem; it makes it much easier for them to fix the problem. It is good for a variety of things very good tool and less expensive than SoapBox!

Pros:

Quick and easy to use!

Cons:

Not any yet!

CEO of Digital Envy

I started using Loom and got offered to use the Pro version. It's been great for creating everything from all out webinars to quickie videos to show my designers how to make a change or a project. Overall a really solid piece of software that has been added to my stack.

Pros:

Really fast and easy to use. Lightweight resource for people who make a lot of videos and need to share them quickly.

Cons:

A few competitors offer better features.

Try this out if you haven't already.

Pros:

Easy to use URL video links and the ability to DL Free to use

Cons:

None, this is the best piece of software I have used in a while. I use it for internal and retailer training at the moment.

I help people to free their time

Loom removes all the barriers to using video in everyday conversation. It's always ready, and the instant link sharing is key. We use Loom in 90% of our internal business comms. It is a driving force for positive change in our business.

Pros:

Loom is a key factor in our success in growing from 1 to 14 Virtual Assistants in less than a year. We love Loom!

Cons:

screen capture, more comprehensive editing

Maybe an option to switch off the facecam for a short segment and then come back to it later - all within the same recordng? Perhaps it can do this already....I need to explore a bit more!

Pros:

Its such a no-fuss tool. Intuitive and so useful in a variety of ways.

Cons:

None that I can think of!

I use Loom basically every day while working with design apprentices, and can't imagine going back to the other tools I was using.

Pros:

- Video is instantly ready after recording - Marking up on screen is simple, intuitive - Can record with video on any app

Cons:

- Excited to see slightly more editing controls in the future
