CloudApp Thrives Where Jing Lacks

Jing screen capture relies on local memory sources for storage. To send files to others, users must upload content to Screencast. Sound complicated? Zight (formerly CloudApp) provides users with a simple alternative that offers more superior options.

Jing Screen Capture Overview

Screen capturing should be effortless and happen instantly. When you use Jing, the process becomes complicated and intertwined with TechSmith’s other products. Snagit, Screencast, Camtasia, and Relay are all separate applications with various functions. If you are looking to increase your speed, stop juggling multiple programs and embrace an all-in-one solution: Zight (formerly CloudApp) Screen Capture App.

Don’t Live with Limitations

Users that capture screen recordings with Jing are restricted to a 5-minute window. After 5 minutes, users must save the first file and begin filming another. If you wanted to share these pieces of content, you would have to take the time to upload multiple videos to Screencast. Then, if you want to edit the content, you have to download and install Snagit. Zight (formerly CloudApp) gives its users the option of limitless recording. Life doesn’t wait for those who fail to adapt. Don’t settle for less and stop using programs that are wasting precious minutes of your time.

Security Should Always be a Priority

Jing screen captures can be sent to others by using additional TechSmith tools- but is that content safe? Jing leaves users with very security options. There is no method to control who views your images after they have been sent. Zight (formerly CloudApp)’s security features allow content to auto-detonate after a specific amount of time or to cease after a predetermined number of views. Enjoy analytical reporting on the content you send with Zight (formerly CloudApp) and rest easy knowing that your data is fully encrypted and stored in the cloud.

Innovators Don’t Wait

As a leader in your business or industry, you don’t have a second to waste. The numerous steps and required programs of Jing drain your most precious resource. You can collect more of any other resource except your time- it needs to be your number one priority. Zight (formerly CloudApp) allows users to complete any screen recording or annotation almost instantaneously. The entire process of capturing content, editing it, and sharing with others takes seconds. In fact, Buffer’s team saves about 24 hours per week by using Zight (formerly CloudApp). Stop interrupting your workflow and communicate visually at the speed of sight.
