CloudApp is a video and image sharing platform clearly aimed at professionals who need to get stuff shared and get it done quickly and easily. But it’s also good for everyone else as well, from Grandad to temperamental moody teenager. Whether you are trying to share a GIF of a cute kitten falling over or a worked-up image of a supply-chain quality assurance audit, or the latest annotated visual of some buggy code to troubleshoot ahead of a deadline with team of developers around the world, CloudApp lets you share pretty much effortlessly.
This version has been made especially for Mac users. Unlike some 'cross platform' software out there, it feels like it was designed by someone who actually uses Macs on a day-to-day basis, and has been tailored to work accordingly. It's a nice touch.
Where CloudApp shines is that it is super—quick and easy to share with others. Traditionally, sharing videos and some images can be an awkward and frustrating process, messing around with emails with size limitations for example. CloudApp is refreshingly simple to use but produces stress free results.
Every file you want to share is uploaded and safely secured to CloudApp Servers, and then the only thing you need to share is the unique, secure, and password protected cl.ly links CloudApp gives you.
Cool and top features include:
- Both Windows and Mac apps ensuring cross platform compatibility.
- Simple and easy to use.
- Shareable with anyone who has a web browser and an email.
- Seamless ability to annotate screen with lines, text, circles, arrows and emoji.
- Blur out confidential or unnecessary text!
- Set privacy and access levels.
- Easily integrate daily workflows with videos, GIFFs, and annotated images.
CloudApp also has some well-known companies that use it, including Game of Thrones makers HBO, Zendesk, Squarespace, and Mailchimp. (I’ve heard of them, like their work, what can I say I’m a geek.) Overall, using Cloud App to share files makes life and work a lot better. It’s easy and fast to use and share files effortlessly. Don’t be surprised if it replaces your current file sharing software.
Pricing is also extremely reasonable, starting as it does at a respectable $8 a month for an individual user. It also comes with a free 14-day trial and has a ‘free account,’ that gives you access to the basic screen recording and upload features. The downside is that there is ‘CloudApp’ branding on the images and shared stuff, but, hey it’s free! And that’s not bad for software aimed at the pros.
