What’s the difference between the desktop app and the web app?

Both web and desktop versions share the same core features, allowing you to access and share all your content. You can also manage your account settings and hotkeys. 

The desktop app is an installable version of CloudApp that runs on your Mac or PC and dissolves into the background of your workflow. You’re able to download the desktop app to your client version here. The desktop app allows you to unleash the full potential of CloudApp. For example, you’re able to:

  • Take screenshots and delayed screenshots
  • Create screen recordings (GIF or HD)
  • Create webcam recordings (GIF or HD)
  • Annotate your content

If you’d like to learn more about what you’re able to do with your desktop app, you can check out our additional help center articles listed at the end of this article.

The web app(also known as the web dashboard) can be found on your web browser using the link previously provided. From there, you’re able to access all of your content, collections, trash bin, and personal/team settings.
