Editors' Review

LICEcap for Mac allows you to capture areas of your desktop with a click and then save the frames as either GIF or LCF files. An accessible and super light app, it performs well, producing good quality output. If you often review computer programs or write tutorials for them, this app is certainly for you.

LICEcap for Mac's interface features a frame that you can position and move freely, allowing you to record a specific area of your desktop. The app gets a thumbs up for letting you adjust the frame size and frame rate and for its familiar controls, which make recording super easy. You can save your recording to one of two file formats, either GIF, or, if you prefer lossless compression with no loss in quality -- LCF. Recording output quality is good regardless of the format you choose; improvement from capturing in the LCF format seemed negligible, but may be more apparent when recording high-definition photo or video applications. The app offers hot key support, so you can easily pause and resume recording at any time. In addition, you can also determine how many repetitions your GIF makes, which is quite convenient, as in most cases you don't want it to repeat endlessly.

LICEcap for Mac performs its function well and delivers on its promise. If you need to record images of your desktop for demonstrations, how-to tutorials, or anything else, then try out this app.
