ScreenChomp for iPad helps you do it all.
A simple doodling board, markers, and one-click sharing tools make spreading your ideas and know-how easy and fun!

2. SKETCH out your ideas and talk the viewer through the "how" and "why" of it all.
3. Stop and SHARE your video snack to ScreenChomp.com to generate a simple web link you can paste anywhere.
Why share to ScreenChomp.com? Because…

Users at every skill level can create bite-sized teaching morsels they can share online, again and again, with this delectable app.

TEACHERS: Tutor kids while away from school, or record a few tips to send home with them.
MENTORS: Tutor youngsters from afar, without buying desktop recording software.
KIDS: Share doodles and ideas with friends.
Some of the most innovative teachers helped create ScreenChomp with learning and idea-sharing in mind. Here's what some of them had to say:
Eric Marcos – Lincoln Elementary Math Teacher
“With just an iPad and the ScreenChomp app, everyone can create on-the-go tutorials, mathcasts, or any sort of screencast. It makes screencasting a portable option - no wonky hardware necessary.”
Randy Micallef - 8th Grade Math Teacher
“ScreenChomp will help students review ideas, and it will help me have more consistent interactions with each student. I'll also have a way to re-assess and re-test a student’s understanding of specific concepts, and keep a record of those interactions through captures.”
What's New in Version 1.5
- Added age verification
- Added save only mode
- Enlarged preview screen
Two Major Faults, Perhaps Abandoned by Developers?
I have used another TechSmith product called Jing, with success, but decided to record something with Screen Chomp because I needed a photo in the background. With the details below, the summary is: 1) you cannot review any created videos and 2) if anything is actually saved, I am unable to find it.
I imported the photo, marked up the background, then recorded 4 mins and 30 seconds of video. When I hit the stop button, the screen converted to what appeared to be a preview screen. It would not play. I tried dragging the index to various locations, but without success. No way to confirm if anything was actually saved. Then I looked online for reports and possible solutions, and found that this problem was reported five months ago, but no apparent action had been taken by the developers. I also saw some references to an update that required users to confirm their age, so I deleted SC and downloaded the current app from the store. Again set everything up and again, no way to preview the result. In case my file was actually saved to my Screencast account, I hit Share and my screen went to a blank whiteboard. In the end, my account online did not have the file, so I see no utility for the use of Screen Chomp.
Easy, but missing a feature
This app is intuitive to use and plenty powerful. And of course, the price is right. But it is missing a feature that would give it 5 stars. I'd really like to save directly to my camera roll, rather than waiting for an upload, then waiting for a download.
I believe this version promised a "save only mode," but if it is there, I can't find it.
Only complaint. Otherwise, good work.
Nice, but hangs
I use this for short instructional videos for my students. (Camtasia is not affordable to everyone). About every 10th video I can get the video to play the preview, but it then hangs as I try to upload it to their site. I wish they would have an export to device option, as then I could tell if it is the program, computer or internet connection.
