Capto is a capable screen capturing utility developed for Mac. With its help, you can take snapshots of your desktop and record video tutorials. The application also gives you access to multiple image and video editing tools, provides you with quality output files, and offers you a quick way to share your results.

This program might prove to be of good use if you need to save a copy of a Skype conference, capture a window from your screen or record a game walkthrough. Either way, it provides you with the quality results you need within moments.

You can use various global hotkeys to control how the application operates (first, you need to enable its correspondent Accessibility option from the System Preferences panel). These shortcut keys can always be changed from the Preferences panel of the program. They're also listed on the main menu of the utility from your status bar.

Another important advantage is the fact that you can choose from a wide range of screen capturing modes. You can take a timed snapshot of your entire screen, video record a certain area of your desktop, capture the menu of an application that's running on your Mac, and so much more.

My only issue with this application is that it supports only 2 output formats when it comes to exporting your video recordings (MP4 or MOV). Still, these 2 formats are very popular and supported by a wide variety of video editing tools and players.

In conclusion, Capto proves to be a reliable solution for taking snapshots and recording your screen activity on your Mac.
