Key benefits of Zight (formerly CloudApp)

Screen Capture - Quickly show others exactly what you mean by capturing and sharing your screen. You can choose to capture a point-in-time image as a full or partial screenshot, or dynamically record your screen into a video or gif. Searchable and secure, your data is organized and in one place.

Screenshot - Screengrab. Screencap. Screensnip. A screenshot by all its names still rules! Zight allows you to take a full or partial screenshot. It automatically stores the image to the cloud for easy access and allows you to edit, annotate and share it easily. No more desktop screenshot clutter for you.

Screen Recording - Record your screen with audio and share exactly what you’re thinking and seeing. Quickly communicate ideas with more than novel-length textual descriptions. No more wordy explanations – just clear visual demonstrations via screen recording.

Webcam Recording - Get some face time anytime. Add a human touch to your digital content. Record videos with your webcam or record with a webcam overlay on a screen recording. Add an interpersonal touch and stand out.

GIF Maker - Record your screen as a loopable GIF to explain difficult concepts and give clear instructions. No long-worded emails are needed. Just drag the GIF directly into your message and “show don’t tell.”

File Sharing - Content created in Zight is automatically turned into an easy-to-share link, but you can also upload large files of any type and turn them into easy-to-share links with optional password protection and expiration dates. Searchable and secure, your data is organized and in one place.

Annotations - Add clarity with annotations. Use quick drawings, arrows, lines, emojis and other shapes. Blur any sensitive information or help bring attention to important details that might be overlooked or hard to find.

Analytics - Be in the know. See how many views and who has viewed your content. Weekly productivity reports help you recap your own productivity by sharing items viewed and time saved.

Video Editing - It doesn’t have to be perfect the first time around. You can edit content after creation. Trim or clip recordings. Crop screenshots.

Embed Content
Easily embed content without having to write any code. Sharing methods offer an embed code you can easily copy and paste wherever you want your content to appear.

Collections - Create folders to store and organize your content creations. Find items faster, share items with team members easier.

SOC2 - We take security seriously and are dedicated in our commitment to securing your data and information with a SOC2 Type II compliance certification.

CTA Button - Add a customizable call-to-action button to your videos. This clickable action can be added to videos. Link to an article, close a deal or schedule a meeting.

Custom Branding - Enhance brand recognition, including logos, customized redirect URLs, custom domains, webhooks, comments, and more.

CloudApp is incredibly useful, user friendly and has become one of my favorite business and productivity apps.

Pros

As a tech enthusiast, CloudApp isn't the most exciting deal I've purchased, but it's actually by far one of the most useful ones. I'm impressed with how intuitive and useful this app is! It's reliable, user-friendly and has really streamlined my workflow.

Cons

I wish video uploads went by more quickly. It does seem to be a bit slower than other apps that do similar things, but this is only periodically, and overall, it's still a fantastic app that's been of great value to my business.

Excellent integrations, simple to use, and much more than a screencasting tool

Reviewed on 2023/01/12

Pros

As the Head of Support, I use CloudApp on a regular basis. Sharing images, video demonstrations, and GIFs are simple and quick, and our clients like being able to see a video by clicking a single link without having to form an account. The ability to annotate also streamlines the process, and sharing is as simple as sending them a link, to which they may respond directly on the picture and video page. It's a comprehensive screen-capture video solution. It may be found in the Chrome taskbar. Intuitive and simple to use.

Cons

There are occasional problems, as with most things, but the one that irritates me the most is that trying to screenshot a whole web page frequently fails. Despite the fact that you have the choice to complete the entire page, it will just do the visible section. The security to log in might be frustrating at times. I understand wanting to secure an account, but for me, it's simply screenshots and doesn't require that kind of security; nonetheless, I can see why they have it.

Response from Zight

Why doesn't every person have this on their computer?

Reviewed on 2018/06/26

Pros

CloudApp is among the greats of computer utilities. It works flawlessly and looks great. I love how easy it is to annotate a screenshot or record my screen, but the best part is the unlimited online storage of content and the link I can share anywhere.

Cons

Hmm. Sometimes there are some little bugs, but the overall stability has improved a lot recently. I really can't think of anything else as it works so good.
