How do I use CloudApp? What is CloudApp? What is this?

CloudApp is an instant video and image sharing platform for professionals. CloudApp is the fastest way to capture and embed video, GIFs, screencasts and marked up images throughout business workflows (eg. software development, design, customer success, support, sales, marketing). So, if you're trying to share a video, image, file with a coworker or friend -- there's no faster way.

Getting started is simple!

  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! We've 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.
