Fabulous app - simple and functional

This is a great way to capture videos from the iOS simulator. It includes all the functionality you need, and is extremely simple to use. The captured movies can be used directly in Keynote, emailed, or shared in nearly any other format. They look absolutely great and professional. Totally worth it.

Don’t buy this

This app is useless and a waste of money. I am trying to use it for iOS simulation and still image capture for the app store. It claims to support audio (which I need or I’d just use quicktime). The video playback window doesn’t work. The file that is creates can’t be played by quicktime. And it crashes.
