Best for individuals, businesses, and enterprises who frequently take screenshots and screen recordings. Everything is saved in the cloud with a link you can share with anyone, anywhere. Droplr is an all-in-one solution with advanced features, integrations, and complete security coverage.

Features:

  • Microsoft Teams Integration: Has your team opted for Microsoft Teams over Slack?

CloudApp

  • Over 30 Integrations with product management, customer service, file sharing, blogging, and sales management apps.

  • 10+ Integrations Unique to CloudApp with apps such as WordPress, Adobe XD, and Drift. These integrations let you easily share images between the two apps.

Snagit

Best for business teams and product demonstrations that frequently use visual instructions using screenshots and screen recordings. Snagit provides templates, annotations, and a step tool that is a good solution for how-to guides and tutorials needed to onboard employees or explain products and services to customers.

Features:

  • Integrates or Directly Shares with 12 Apps and Websites including popular social media sites and file-sharing platforms.
  • Share with Other TechSmith Products: Integrations with TechSmith Screencast and TechSmith Camtasia.
  • Few Integrations compared to Droplr and CloudApp; no integrations with work productivity, customer service, or image editing apps. The internal Snagit editor does allow for image annotations, however.
  • Some Microsoft Office Compatibility: The Snagit app doesn’t integrate with all Microsoft 365 apps, but does at least with Powerpoint, Word, Excel, and Outlook.
  • Gmail Integration: Send images directly to email for easy sharing. However, you have to host all images on a computer or configure your own cloud account on Dropbox or Screencast.
  • No Snagit Browser Plugin: Unlike the other apps on this list, Snagit does not have a chrome extension or other browser plugin.

Screencast-O-Matic

Integrating Your Screenshot Tool

Though Droplr, CloudApp, Snagit, and Screencast-O-Matic are all excellent screenshot tools, there are some clear differences in quality with regards to integrations. CloudApp and Screencast-O-Matic by far have the most integrations with other apps, including with highly-rated tools that no other screenshot tool integrates with. However, Droplr has several unique integrations of its own, making it the best choice for customer service teams, graphic designers, and teams that conduct frequent customer interactions. While Snagit impresses in other areas, it is not recommended for individuals and teams who prioritize 3rd party integrations mainly because it is not natively cloud-based and an additional Techsmith product, Screencast, must be purchased in order to access cloud sharing and storage.
