How do I use CloudApp?

Getting started is simple! 

  1. Go to our website to download the app. Once downloaded, double click on the downloaded file to follow the steps and complete the installation. 
  2. If you’re new to CloudApp, click the sign up button and enter your email address and password. Easy.
  3. That’s it, you’re in! Our friend Julie has sent you a verification email to make sure you’re not a robot 😀 Click the link in the email to verify your email address and you’re all set.

You may think: “Great, I’ve got the app and an account, but… what’s next?”
