When you want to show off a feature to a lead, walk a new client through your product, or troubleshoot an issue with a user, you'll want to be able to record your screen. A video is worth a thousands words, and CloudApp allows you to easily capture your screen and webcam so you can help your customers as efficiently as possible.

Start by downloading CloudApp, and then open the application on your computer. You can then select from a number of options: Record your screen to a video, capture your screen as a GIF, take a screenshot (or a delayed screenshot), annotate, upload a file, record a webcam video, and more.

Click on the action you want to take, and CloudApp offers clear instructions on what to do next. And it's a simple process. For example, if you want to create a GIF, you'll click the GIF icon, click and drag to select the area of the screen you want to record, and then click Start. (When recording a webcam video, you can select mirror or natural view, record in HD, and choose to include audio or not.) When you're done recording, click Finish. Your GIF will be automatically saved to the cloud, and you can select to automatically open the file as well.

Once you've created your recording, you can annotate the recording or image, using highlighting, text, arrows, and other icons, including color selection. You can also trim your video with the easy-to-use editor that's as simple as a quick drag to where you want your recording to start and end.

Favorite files to easily find them. When you hover over a file, you'll have the option to create a link to the recording with one click. It will automatically be saved to your clipboard, so you can copy and paste it into an email to your customer. You can also copy a download link or an HTML embed code, among other things, as well as downloading the file directly to your device. And by clicking the Settings gear icon, you can choose to auto-upload your screenshots, and CloudApp will let you select where you'd like your screenshots saved to.

Native integrations with apps like Trello and Slack let you share your recordings directly with your team. And with Pro plans and above, you can set expiration dates and specific privacy settings for each of your recordings.

You can search all your recordings and images by name, contents, text, and color. Doing so will open the web app where you can see all matching results. And you can group your recordings into Collections for easier file management.

CloudApp is your all-in-one solution for capturing anything on your screen. Whether it's a quick screenshot or an extended webcam recording, a few clicks will get you where you need to be with a high-quality result.
