Zappy: Free Screenshot & Recording Software for macOS | Zapier

The fastest, all-in-one way to share screenshots, GIFs, and recordings with your teammates.

When you’re spread out, communication gets harder. We know: Zapier’s fully remote team of 300+ works across 17 time zones. We’ve spent 8 years finding ways to collaborate without an office.

That’s why we made Zappy, an incredibly fast screen capture tool for remote teams. It lets you communicate more effectively by sharing what you see. It’s built for speed and makes annotations way quicker than futzing with your computer’s built-in tools.

We use Zappy every day at Zapier. Now, we’re releasing it free on macOS to help folks who are suddenly remote. We’re also enabling cloud-based hosting for all paid Zapier users as a special gift while Zappy is in early access. We hope Zappy helps you better communicate with your team and we’d love your feedback at
