Ratings and Reviews
You can't share videos without in-app purchases or buying the full version. Ridiculous.
Great App for what it is designed to do
First, it works great recording the screen and your voice. The process is very simple and recordings look great. You can record, draw, outline, etc just like any other screen recorder on the Mac or PC.
Second, it is not an editor. You record and send. If you goofed up, record it again. That could be a problem for long videos, but for simple short recordings it is fine. If you are recording big presentations, use your Mac or PC.
The audio sounds as good as it can recording off of the ipad mic, so try to use the Apple headphones that came with your ipad, they contain a mic that sounds better on the recordings.
When you are finished you can have the video email to yourself to check audio etc, then forward it to your intended audience.
Don't enjoy it
Lets say your making a presentation, which was my case. If you want to use the text option in your presentation, I strongly advise you choose a different app. When I make a text, and I want to add it, theres no "Done" or "Use text" button or something along the lines of that. And if you finish a really long text and want to edit it before you upload it (which you can't do), once you click the text box, the entire passage you wrote gets deleted. I would really enjoy it if they updated this as soon as possible, but my presentation is due in 3 days. I'm supposing most presentations are going to have text in it, so if you're gonna add details about what you're talking about, get a different app.
