This is fantastic. I have been using LICEcap (weird name right?) for way too long:

@mikepreuss Me too....LiceCap seems to handle everything I need. Still, interface of this is more intuitive, having menu bar interface is nice

@freakynit2 @mikepreuss LICEcap has way better compression/quality. It's also more intuitive than RecordIt, which forces you to pull up a webpage to view the GIF. No thanks.

I recently asked a friend if there was a tool to easily turn a screen capture into an animated GIF and then BOOM! Recordit popped up.
whydna@whydna does this too, but Mac only.

Love this tool. Super helpful for demonstrating software defects to engineers instead of describing with text.
