Best Free Gif screen capture app now available for M1 Chip Mac - LICECap


I have been using the LICECap App for recording screens on Apple's Mac Computers and Laptops for over a decade now! Without any doubt, it is the best Application for screen recording as a gif image, and yes it's free!

When I got my M1 MacBook, I started looking for all the necessary applications and I downloaded the LICECap App as well but unfortunately, it was broken for the M1 Mac as most of the other applications due to the ARM Chip! But the good news is that Cockos Inc has now released version v1.31 for macOS that has native support for M1 Mac
