I appreciate when I can take screenshots, and send them to coworkers. When I need to illustrate when something is not working properly, I can easily take a screenshot of the error message, and send it off to IT. This way they are able to resolve the issue much sooner. I will receive website leads, take a screenshot of the lead, and forward it on to the sales team

Pinnacle Studio is best for youtubers, teachers, and startups who can't afford the subscription-based software like Adobe Premiere Pro. Pinnacle Studio comes with all many advanced features. However, some precise controls are missing in the software so it is not for those who want every aspect of the video perfect.

Pros

CloudApp

  • Capturing specific contents in video format instead of getting recorded the whole screen
  • Customizing the contents of any video or screenshots and annoting in terms of user's need
  • Editing the videos and screenshots which is helpful in terms of sharing contents in online presentations or meetings with client
  • Getting more customized settings while uploading or editing screenshots to look the content more readable

  • Allows for quick and easy "commercials" for our announcements..
  • Used to create pre and post worship service videos to help people begin and end worship.
  • Used to create special videos for special music.

Cons

CloudApp

  • Can get buggy or slow to load when you have a large library of media saved
  • The GIF/video capturing can bug sometimes when you are in full-screen mode, but I have a feeling that's connected with going over the limit of the freemium account 😅

  • Pinnacle does have a learning curve.
  • The program occasionally becomes choppy and hangs up.
  • We can't change the cursor size in the screen recording. Other alternatives like Camtasia studio provides this feature.

In all honesty I don't even have time to look for an alternative to CloudApp at this point in our business. CloudApp works for what we had planned to use it for and unless a competing service that offers the same quality and ease-of-use along with video screen capture comes out I will renew indefinitely.

Usability

CloudApp

CloudApp 8.2
Based on 2 answers
I would give cloud app a 10 out of 10 if the video screen capture portion of the tool worked flawlessly and the addition of few suggestions like full-page screen grab and the quicker ability to download screenshots or screen videos to my hard drive. I don't mean to repeat a feature request here being that features would heavily improve usability in my particular usage situation.

It could use slight improvements. But overall a wonderful product.

I would give cloud app a 9/10 score on overall support mostly because I have had very little need of any support at all being that the tool was designed almost to use itself. In my opinion this level of forethought is equal to customer support. As of yet I've only had one real problem with cloud app which was the loss of a 20 minute video screen capture. Unfortunately I have not had the time to contact support about this loss. The only other minor issues that I confronted was within the initial set up which I was able to resolve via their website's support pages.

I was extremely satisfied with how quick and easy the implementation of Cloudapp was on my MacIntosh using MacOS Sierra was, along with how amazingly fast I was able to be up and going with the tool. most often with sass tools we are lucky if we can use 50% of the features without having to have consultations and a ton of back-and-forth email on how to use other features of the product. Cloud app has made it extremely user-friendly with almost no need for customer support. To My business, that equals time savings which as most business owners know, can be far more valuable than a few dollars saved.

Alternatives Considered

CloudApp

I need to point out that I love Snagit. It's a fantastic product, but there are different use-cases. CloudApp for me is about quick and efficient sharing. Snagit doesn't really allow for that. Yes, they have a cloud sharing option, but for the entirety of me using the program, it hasn't worked right. You'll have to try both to see what I mean.

Pinnacle Studio provides pro level tools, and it is very close to Adobe Premiere Pro in terms of features. Also, it provides a perpetual license for a lifetime version. Overall, it is stable and polished software then the other alternatives present in the market.

Return on Investment

CloudApp

  • Speed. It's incredibly quick and easy to share images, gifs, and videos. That saves us time and makes us more productive.
  • Storage. Everything is kept in one place, so it's easy to go back and reference/keep track of. It keeps us from hunting down previous shares.
  • Annotation. It's very quick to mark things up before sending! Again, the primary benefit here is speed.
  • Cash. We'll occasionally share videos with prospects so they better understand our offerings. Some of those people become customers!

Pinnacle Studio

  • It saves a lot of costs as it has a perpetual license option.
  • Editing and exporting are fast as compared to some other software.
  • We can make and sell quality video content which is of course profitable.
