1- What is Peek?

Peek is a simple software helping you record part of the screen and export it into a GIF file. The Peek works as a Camera located at the top of all applications and records the part of screen.
Note: The Peek is an application for the computers using Linux operating system. If you use the Windows operating system, you can install a similar software that is GifCam. In my experience, the GifCam is better software because it creates GIF files with very small capacity while its image quality is very good. Unfortunately, the GifCam supports only Windows operating system.
