Jing overview

Jing is a screen capture application that allows you to select and capture parts of your screen and save that area as a static picture or even a movie.

Then you can add arrows, text and box highlights to draw further attention to the area you want to highlight.

The thing that makes Jing unique is that it has a "share" button, which allows you to share the image or video with a friend by connecting to the free screencast.com image hosting solution. Click share, it uploads your media behind the scenes, and places the link to the screen in your clipboard. You can then email or paste that URL into your chat application for your friends to see.

I love Jing. I use it mostly for snipping screen shots, which is very easy and can be saved as a separate image document or copied directly into another type of document, such as Word or Excel. One of my great disappointments with my MacAirbook was the lack of the snipping tool I found so handy in the Windows system used in previous computers. Jing solved that problem. I have had no problem using Jing for a 5 min. video. Why are others complaining it isn't fast enough? Jing is FREE, so don't expect it to be the absolute topnotch app possible to find, of course there are better systems for those who want to pay. I'm delighted to able to use Jing for free. Thanks to those who make free use possible. Question: how do I download the latest update for Mac users that came out Oct. 2015? Missed the window that popped up and have not been able to find how to access that update since.

Perfect little app for screenshots you can auto-upload then link to in emails or forum posts. Annotation is simple and useful. Only niggle is a 3-click process to quit the app.

free but limited: 5 minutes screencasts max. swf files only "clumsy" mouse movements during screencast... For the same price and a better quality, you can use Quicktime 10 (on Snow Leopard and more) which allows you to record your screen...

This only allows one to save their movie as a .swf file. To save a movie into a .mp4 movie format, one must *spend* for the PRO version, thus the use of this free application is limited. Insisting on signing up for sharing is not a plus either since this should be optional.

Screw this. All I wanted was a free screen recorder. This was advertised as "free," but to use it you have to sign up for an account. Wthout signing an endless EULA, it is uselss. Does everything have to be a scam and a gip?

Jing would be great if it didn't sit in the background and eat CPU cycles. Take a look at Activity Monitor and look at the total CPU Time used up by Jing. I was trying to figure out why my MBP battery usage was higher than usual. Sure enough, Jing increases average battery usage by 1.0W... when completely idle. That's not okay.

Jing! appears to work when recording, but when previewed or played back all I get is a black screen with white arrow cursors bouncing around. Sounds ok... no video. iMac 17" 800 mhz PPC, Flash 9 and 10, OS X 10.4.11

Downloaded the fore last version of Jing (freeware), that worked on my iMac G5 with Leopard. After two days the program invited me to download an updated version. Downloaded it, but immediately after installing and touching the sun the first time it vanishes. Downloaded the last version since then several times, but nothing helps.

Awesome. Really fast. Except, the sun is a little annoying to look at and may cause a burn-in. Otherwise, pretty awesome.

This program was great at version 1.25 - I still use that version. Since 1.26, bugs started creeping in. If you can find 1.25 on the net somewhere, use that instead.

Ive installed this application on many different setups. MacPro's, powerbooks, imac... there is always an issue no matter the version. It has hung my MacPro to the point where i had to login with another account just to rip it out! if there is something out there that i can pay for that works, id buy it.

Downloader beware. Software is listed as "free" but requires you to sign up for an account on a web site. They have a long TOS which includes: "you grant to TechSmith a non-exclusive, royalty-free license to use, copy, distribute, and display that content."
