CloudApp

Personally, CloudApp ticks all the boxes when it comes to a screen recording and productivity tool. These are the most popular ways I use it (at work and home):
  • Take screenshots of "marketing done well" and industry news and share with the team on Slack.
  • Take screenshots of essential information and store it in notes.
  • Review short copy by taking a screenshot and using annotations to highlight where changes could be made.
  • Review a website page by following the same steps above to highlight the desired structure to the product designer.
  • Record a GIF of our new product feature to share in a newsletter or blog.
  • Record a GIF to record a user journey and share with the support team.
  • Record a short video to explain how to access/find stuff.
... and the list goes on!

Pros

CloudApp

  • CloudApp makes taking GIFs, videos, and screenshots very quick and easy. Very little training was required for CloudApp because it is a straight forward tool.
  • We love the feature that allows you to annotate images and videos to highlight certain areas. This is especially important in Support when explaining something to a customer.
  • I like that CloudApp makes sharing files very easy. In just the click of a button, you can choose how you'd like to share a file with someone else.

  • It's a great place for anyone who wants to improve their business by appearing very professional.
  • Easy to use and to create astonishing vibes with your clients.
  • Communication is very professional and really, really short response period.
  • For those who are more professional but have no time or ideas about what to make for their own business, inspiration is a place called Renderforest

Cons

CloudApp

  • While annotations are nice, editing features are lacking overall. You can't trim a screenshot or crop it once you've taken it, so you'd better be perfect with your capturing on the first try.
  • The web library for managing your past captures is hellacious. There's no deleting mistakes, no real categorization like tags, and the drag and drop adding is glitchy at best.

Renderforest Video

  • Uploading video is slow, processing time and rendering video are often jammed.
  • Some templates have more restrictions, such as the number of words in the title, the number of pictures, the size of pictures and so on.
  • Prices for individual users are not very friendly.

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 was very easy. They have a nice help video to guide you along the way that you can turn off if you chose. But It was a quick process and everything tied together very well. I am very pleased with the final product. I will definitely use them again.

Renderforest Video has great performance. In all the time I have used it, I haven't ever really had to wait for anything to be done, except for the rendering time. The reason for not giving the product a full 10 out of 10 is that the page load times in the wizard have left me frustrated at times. This, though, is most likely the result of internet service in a 3rd world country, as opposed to a slow server.

Support Rating

CloudApp

CloudApp 9.1
Based on 2 answers
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.

Implementation Rating

CloudApp

CloudApp 8.2
Based on 1 answer
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.

Renderforest is far superior. More intuitive and has a bunch of helpful templates. I've found that iMovie lacked in any direction and though there is a lot of freedom, for people who need to make quick and effective media, Renderforest is the better choice. I have really enjoyed my use of it.

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!
Andrew Clark | TrustRadius Reviewer

Renderforest Video

  • More time can be spent on interviewing clients and researching and development instead of creating quality graphics.
  • The subscription payment option saves money since we know we need them constantly in the future.
  • The quality of the content is superior to the ability of our on-site graphic design team at less than half the cost.
