Final Words

Droplr has all the features that you can look for a screen capture tool. Even though it seems costlier, Cloud storage support enhances its functionality. The only disadvantage with this tool is that the image editor lacks advanced editing options. At the same time, you can’t edit the videos that you recorded. You will need a third-party editor to customize your file.
