Tapes lets you share a recording of your screen in an instant—press ⇧⌘2, select an area you want to capture and press it again when you’re done. Tapes will immediately put a shareable link in your clipboard, all while the video is uploading in the background. Each tape can be up to 3 minutes long (your recipients will thank you) and you can record up to 60 minutes each month. Your videos are kept forever in the best possible quality. [Tapes costs $9.99](https://itunes.apple.com/app/id779457527) — pay once and save time for every long email you would’ve sent without every having to pay again.

*My thanks to [Tapes](http://usetapes.com) for sponsoring the RSS feed this week. It’s a very well-done implementation on a very simple idea: that sometimes we want to share a screencast and not just a screenshot. Tapes is one of those apps that does one thing and does it very well. [Just $10 in the Mac App Store.](https://itunes.apple.com/app/id779457527)*
