  • App LIST!!!
    Kap (Free) That's cap (did I do it? Am I cool?)... Kap is a free open-source screen recorder built with web technology, click the menu bar icon to bring up the screen recorder. After selecting what portion of the screen you'd like to record, hit the record button to start recording. Click the menu bar icon again to stop the recording. There is also user-made plugins, really good app in my opinion. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Creating a product announcement video gif
    I have used Kap to do this before. It records the screen with mouse interactions and has the option to clip the recording to avoid the awkward mouse movements at the start and end. There are options to export the capture as a video or GIF. Source: over 1 year ago

  • Things I can’t do on macOS which I can do on Ubuntu
    I'll start with things that I'm happy to have in mac that didn't have in Linux :) - Cannot run a bunch of programs that stay on the topbar, like LINE (, Kap (, etc. I am a fairly heavy user of Kap and I love the interface, so this is probably the biggest differentiator for me. - The visual quality of the programs in Mac is generally a lot higher, and humans do like aesthetic... - Source: Hacker News / about 2 years ago

  • Alternative to Screen to Gif?
    CleanShot which is pretty great, but it's paid. There's also Kap which is free, I haven't tried it but it seems solid too (although with fewer features). Both let you record you screen and export to GIF. Source: over 2 years ago
