Overall Satisfaction with Loom

Loom is used to record and share screen capture videos in a quick way to support our development processes. The videos are recorded by revisors of game design mechanics to capture the feedback in video and audio as they play our game that is in development. The video stays in the Loom cloud platform, and is shared by one of our project management tools.
  • It's quick and easy to start recording.
  • A great cloud platform integrated to share the videos.
  • Password protection of the videos.
  • Integration with project management tools like ClickUp and Notion.
  • I had problems when recording long videos.
  • Sometimes, when recording, a huge amount of computer performance is needed.
  • The online video player of Loom is not as good as the more consolidated platforms (ex.: Youtube, Vimeo).
  • Loom has a positive impact because we use the free version of the software.
  • Loom has a positive impact because its an important software used in our development process.
I've used Camstasia and Screen-o-Matic to record screen capture videos in the past. These 2 options at the time didn't have an online platform to upload the videos, so I uploaded it to Youtube or Google Drive so my collaborators could watch them. Loom is easier than them, as it integrates the 2 features that I need in an easy to use way; it records with good quality the videos that I need, and uploads them automatically to the Loom platform so my collaborators can watch them.
I never had to use customer support for Loom, so I can't be of any help in this section.

Loom is well suited for scenarios where you want to record and share screen-captured videos in a quick and easy way. Its main feature is that almost after finishing the recording your video will be available in the cloud, so you can share it with your collaborators quickly. It's less appropriate when you have to record long videos.
