Screen Recording with Integrations

Though Droplr, CloudApp, Snagit, Loom, and Screencast-o-matic are all excellent all-in-one screen recorders, there are some clear differences in quality with regards to integrations. CloudApp and Screencast-o-matic have the most integrations with other apps. Screencast-o-matic in particular is the best choice for educators, especially those who conduct remote online classes, due to its numerous integrations with online education software.

However, Droplr and Loom both have several unique integrations of their own. Droplr is the best choice for customer service and product management teams that conduct frequent customer interactions. Loom is recommended for those who make use of its unique integration with Embedly by sharing videos with followers on Medium or fans and backers on Kickstarter. While Snagit impresses in other areas, it is not recommended for individuals and teams who prioritize 3rd party integrations as it is not cloud-based and therefore the user needs to either host all their own content or purchase Snagit’s Screencast cloud storage and video hosting tool.
