This is gorgeously simple!!
While the product is great and you're really going in the right direction with it, the product page doesn't stand out with anything.
It may be me, but I saw so many gradients, they are all the same because they are only colors, of course.
Some time ago, I would've appreciated the centered website layout. But now, the scrolling is so embedded in the user's behavior. We land on a page and scroll before even reading the headline.
It is nice, it looks nice, don't get me wrong. But it doesn't stand out.
Hi Vlad! In the next iteration we're thinking about expanding on each of the features, and adding some information on what they are and why they're helpful, in addition to some other bits and pieces. So far most people have appreciated that all the info is on "one page", and the simple approach to it. I don't personally believe there's a fold though, and having it it all “above the fold” wasn’t a goal. Will have your feedback in mind when we do more work on this, thank you!
Great! does someone know the advantages of this over the embed quicktime feature?
Seems like the .gif and higher than 15fps would be the two features quicktime doesn't have.
More control over the size you record in (including locking to aspect ratios), exporting to either mp4, gif or webm after recording, and extra export options and preferences. Oh, and much, much more to come.
I really like Kap. And, excited to see what the new features are.
Reg. the site, you might want to check if the call-to-action button is contrasting enough with the background gradient (perhaps a different button color or higher brightness).
Also, a minor details is the low color contrast of the text, 'View and contribute on Github' against the backgorund.
I've been struggling with this, I've made the mint colour and light greys a lot darker in this version, but to pass every single web accessibility contrast check I'd have to go all the way to #006f59. Ended up testing it with several people (including people who can struggle in circumstances like these) and they gave it the thumbs up. Keeping my eyes and ears open for further feedback regarding it. Thanks!
If the user testing did not yield any problems, then it is great. Subjective impressions of a designer do not matter. :-)
However, if you still want to explore - perhaps brighten the background color and have the text color set to #333 or #000? That would give enough emphasis on the call-to-action button. https://www.dropbox.com/s/1zjjgzx84kohero/getKap.png
Option to hide the cursor! Yay! I've been looking for simple recorders with this option and only found ugly and shady stuff on app store.
