Overall Satisfaction with CloudApp

CloudApp is a low-friction, no-brainer way to instantly capture anything on my screen and share it via Slack or elsewhere, without using my own storage resources, saving the file, dragging attachments, or even having to copy before I paste. Before CloudApp, it was laborious to share thoughts, charts, quotes, price sheets, and other images live during a collaborative conference call, and a big production to make quick, 30-second walkthrus in answer to a how-to. Now it's easier to share than not to. Once I started using CloudApp, I couldn't do without it.
  • Instant selective screenshot or capture of charts and images
  • Quick how-to videos with or without voice over
  • Shortened links for every captured item
  • Shareable links that automatically expand when posted to Slack
  • Let me have some basic image filters and tools like adjusting brightness or greyscale
  • Let me crop selectively to remove bits and the whole image
  • Let me paste/add images to images and move them around
  • It saves me roughly 2hrs/month in C-level labor.
  • It saves resource costs for storing large images or images of varying and unpredictable sizes in communication tools.
  • It speeds conversations, making them more effective, saving a few hours/month with other stakeholders.
CloudApp is a utility-level tool (essential)—as essential as copy and paste; as essential as bookmarking a URL. It should be a native app to an OS like Mac OSX. While it's not a high powered image management or image editing tool, its functions are about the fastest tasks we perform reflexively and repeatedly throughout the day. I have 5-7 calls per day and in 3 of those I'll share a search result, chart, image, image crop, or other image via CloudApp. It's too fast not to use—faster than explaining something, and far faster than download/right click/attachment options. Most of the time spent is waiting for the other person to get/open the email if they don't have Slack or a cell in hand to text them.
