NexShot is a free screen recorder, screenshot tool with annotation and online sharing. This is a useful tool for video tutorial makers as they can record and annotate any particular area of their screen with all the activities. It offers annotation tools like arrows, blur tool, text tool, eraser, pen, shapes, and some others. Not only that, you can even upload the video to its online storage in one click and after uploading the recorded clip, it will leave the download link on the Windows clipboard. Apart from uploading the file to its server, you can even share the captured video or screenshot to Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ in one click.
There are many screen recorder software out there but this is something special. The conventional screen recorder software are heavy in size and they normally record the whole screen. But the advantage here is that you can use a light weight software and keep running in the background. You can access it anytime from the system tray and record specific area of your screen with live editing and blurring different parts.
