Gifox for Mac

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
  • Lockable aspect for fast selection restore

Open up Gifox in any selection mode using preconfigured global shortcuts or customize them in preferences.

  • Cmd+Shift+5 initiates free selection mode recording
  • Cmd+Shift+6 initiates window mode recording

  • Cmd+A/D selects full screen and clears the selection
  • Arrows+Cmd/Shift resizes and moves the selection
