Gifox is a beautifully designed and masterfully crafted app that records your screen into animated GIFs – the great alternative between static images and full-size videos. It's your best companion for:

- Micro-screencasts and product demos
- Animated instructions and bug reporting
- Selective on-screen video capturing


Gifox introduces a completely new way of continuous screen capturing with window selection mode – you select a window and Gifox precisely records it even when it's moved or covered up by other windows. Free selection mode is also there for you – fast-select any area on the screen and hit record, like you used with the standard grab app / Cmd+Shift+4 command.

- Pixel-sharp selection with accurate margins
- Only selected window without any overlaps
- With or without window shadow
- With or without desktop background


A set of capturing options accessible via preferences window let you explicitly control your recording and output.

- Record fps
- Playback fps
- Window shadow
- Desktop background


Advanced compression options provide complete control over output quality and file size.

- Colour
- Palette generation
- Dithering


Open up Gifox in any selection mode using preconfigured global shortcuts, which can be customised in preferences.

- Cmd+Shift+5 initiates/stops free selection mode recording
- Cmd+Shift+6 initiates/stops window mode recording


Easily share your recordings with Dropbox, Google Drive and Imgur, copy or drag-and-drop them to other apps! Support for more great services underway, but we want to know what integrations would be most useful for you – let us know using the in-app feedback form or contacts on our website.
