Poor user interface, no audio controls


The user interface is complex and gets in the way of simple tasks. Try recording a video from your screen using computer audio and computer video. There is no audio selection option. There is a grayed out video camera icon, but it may not respond when selected. Capto likes screen captures of still images, but why bother with this clunky software when a simple screen capture using Apple keystrokes will let you capture an image that can be imported directly into your favorite editor.

The concept of a screen recorder app that does not have an audio interface control makes no sense. The App developers clearly never tested their product in the real world. Overall, Capto seems to be a failed attempt to update an older app, Voila, but the result is an awkward dysfunctional product that will waste way too much time trying to get it to function in what should be the bottom line purpose: record a computer screen video with simple controls to select window size and audio needs.

Stay away from this turkey until the interface is improved and there is some proof that it actually works as described.

Degraded functionality

Soon-to-be x-user

Used to work well. But now capturing what you’ve actually outlined in a rectangle is hit-and-miss. Mostly ‘miss’. In the past, this was not an issue but now (v 1.2.7), the rectangular selection capture will capture the specified rectangle size, only from a window that the rectangular selection has not selected. Meaning, for example, you can select an area of a browser for capture, double- and triple-check that the rectangular selection is what you want…and then go to the Capto UI and see in the Organizer that it captured the size right, but from some random other window of a different running app. Also, from the Capto UI Organizer, the export function almost never actually places the file where you’ve specified. Usually 1 or 2 directories above where you’ve specified. Later, Capto...

Great product to use as a teaching tool


I wear two hats at work, one as an online teacher for adult literacy classes, and the other as the data collections specialist for the adult programs in my school district. I use this program daily as a teaching tool with screen captures to teach staff and students alike to use different programs. I could not be without this great product. It is invaluable to me.
