Monosnap is a screen capture utility that enables you to record activities on your desktop and take snapshots. You can use this program to capture video tutorials for your apps, game walkthroughs, clips showing an issue you're having on your Mac, and many others.
The application can be found within your Menu Bar from where you can select the preferred capturing mode (video or snapshot). There, you can also choose the proper output format for the video recordings and screenshots, define global hotkeys, and customize the app's appearance according to your needs.
The video recording tool comes with basic output options: choose the resolution, screen position, etc.
Furthermore, you can alter the screenshots by using any of the built-in image editing options. The app lets you add text content and geometrical shapes to the snapshots or crop them if necessary. Another aspect I like is that the program also offers you an option to take selfies by using your webcam.
However, Monosnap still supports a limited amount of output formats: PNG and JPEG for screenshots and MPEG and GIF for video recordings. Another disadvantage is that you need to pay a relatively small price in order to be able to upload the screenshots and video recordings to your cloud service accounts.
With that being said, I think you can find better solutions for capturing your screen activity.
