Zight's web and desktop versions have complementary features, allowing you to create, access, and share all your content. In this article, we'll go over the different features you'll find in the desktop and web versions. 


Desktop App

The desktop app is an installable version of Zight that runs on your Mac or PC and dissolves into the background of your workflow. You can download the desktop app to your client version here. The desktop app allows you to unleash the full potential of Zight. For example, you can:

  • Take screenshots and delayed screenshots
  • Create screen recordings 
  • Create webcam recordings 
  • Annotate your content
  • Create GIFs
  • Share your content
  • Create collections

If you’d like to learn more about what you’re able to do with your desktop app, you can check out our additional help center articles listed at the end of this article.


The Web Dashboard

The web app (also known as the web dashboard) can be found on your web browser. You can: 

  • access all of your content, collections, trash bin, and personal/team settings
  • share your content
  • create and manage templates
  • manage your settings
  • record a video (more limited than the desktop version)

If you need further assistance or have additional questions, we’d be happy to help! Please contact our support team here.
