The app that saves me the most time all day long!

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: I am happy with the service and sales team as well as the support staff to fix any issues. They are top notch and doing the right things for a great app.

Pros:

I like that I can screenshare or share videos with one simple click. It is easy to use and to share with support or others you need to show them on your desktop.

Cons:

I dislike that it sometimes crashes during the middle or recording especially if the recording is longer than 10 minutes. This may be a bug.

Good app but no development

4.0 5 months ago

Comments: Does what it's supposed to do from your browser. You can take screenshots and make recordings. That's it. Competition offers more. But i love the deep integration onto the system, which is why I still use it daily.

Pros:

Used it daily when it was still Cloudapp, now with new branding the software unfortunately is buggy and there are no updates. Looks abandoned.

Cons:

no development (no new features), no Android app, no filters, cannot screenshot a full website (scroll). MacOS app not working on my M1

Love It, but It's Buggy

2.0 4 months ago

Comments: Very good. Apart from the wasted time when it crashes or doesn't upload the training.

Pros:

It's easy to use and I like the speed at which I can access it.

Cons:

The fact that for the last year it keeps crashing and not recording. Or worse still, when you've done a 10 minute training video it gets stuck on upload and then you have to redo the video. In fact I've had this happen 3X today alone, which is why I'm now writing a review out of frustration.

Five stars worth of performance. Communication is key.

5.0 8 months ago

Comments: Highly productive and user friendly. Zight is a hot deal.

Pros:

Surely, communication is precious and it is a key ingredient to success in any organization. Managed communication saves alot of misunderstanding and unnecessary chaos. I advocate for Zight for well managed communication both internal and external. I have three major pros: Quick response, cost effectiveness and ease of customization.

Cons:

None. I have no cons for Zight. It has eliminated misunderstanding and built the spirit of togetherness.

Quick and easy screen recording

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: Overall happy with it, I use it mainly to quickly provide a screenshot of my questions to clients regarding projects we are working on.
But can't use it if I'm expecting annotations from our clients, in that case an email attachment seems to be the preferred option for our clients or use a different software.

Pros:

Is simple to use and works fast. We have a personalized domain and logo (the size of the logo could be a bit bigger IMO). I like to use the "copy direct link" when I'm sending emails with inline images so my storage is not depleted as quickly as it used to. Would be great if the direct link included our domain.

Cons:

There's no advanced annotations for our clients, so now 2 way communication/annotation. We had found a workaround integrating userback.io using the option to include javascript but they removed that option. So we stopped using cloudapp for that use case and are using userback.io directly.
