CloudApp is the world's leading visual communication platform. Create and share files, annotated screenshots, make GIFs, HD videos, screen recordings and screencasts on your Desktop — and upload them to the Cloud.

Drag a file to CloudApp or use our hotkey shortcuts to capture a screenshot, GIF, or HD screen-recording. A link to the file will automatically be copied to your clipboard that you can paste to Slack, Twitter, IM, email, or smoke signals.

"So simple that you use it without realizing it's there." — Tim Van Damme (Dropbox)

“CloudApp streamlines our sharing and communication. I no longer waste time trying to explain complex workflows or edits to be made or get mired in file attachments. Instead I just constantly use CloudApp to capture, comment, and share via a handy link. CloudApp is indispensable to the efficiency of our business, and they’re fantastic to work with.” — Daniel Odio (ShareThis)

"CloudApp is extremely useful, beautiful, and so very simple. Exactly what you want in a utility." — Mark Jardine (Tapbots)

"CloudApp is file sharing the way it should be: simple and powerful with a handy keyboard shortcut integration that my fingers tend to stay glued to, all bundled into an elegant UI." — Brian Hoff (The Design Cubicle)

“Few apps come across my path that becomes instantly integrated into my workflow. Cloudapp is one of them. I honestly can't imagine using my computer without it. It's critical to the way I work.” — Mike Gowen (Delighted)

Works most of the time

Over the couple years I've used CloudApp it works great most of the time then something throws it off and quirky things happen for a few weeks. Eventually, they come out with an update and all works well again. Seems to be pretty stable at the moment. (Sep 2022) Would like to see the ability to move my picture where ever on the screen when filming screen recordings. On a large screen monitor its pretty useless with me down in the corner as a miniscule talking head. Overall, its a good product.

Has saved me days of work

I've used this tool for longer than I can remember. In that time period, it has saved me countless hours of work by simplifying the workflow for sharing screenshots, by making it easy to do quick instructional videos, and by being available across devices so that I can access content regardless of where I am. It gets better and better with every release and I'm glad they've grown exponentially.

An app that doesn't know what it wants to be

I've been a customer for years now. I was one of the first users and for several years this app has been a part of my daily workflow. But year after year the functionality began to shift away from the things that made it great, the web client stagnated, the desktop clients have become absurdly poor (UI/UX and overall functionality) and the windows client is especially useless. Their customer service routinely ignores inquiries and they provide you with no ability to download your own data in bulk. I wish they could just revert back to how things worked in ~2015 but I don't see it happening.
