Amazing 'cause it Works...But Sometimes it Won't Stop


Like so many other reviewers I have a problem not being able to stop recording. Other than that this app is seriously amazing! It records and allows you to import and edit the audio track that Apple's ios 11 screen recorder won't currently due to an unacknowledged glitch! It’s super easy to use too...unlike many side-loaded apps I've tried.

But...the not shutting off seems like it may be a BIG problem. Developer can you please address this here? For it really still recording or is there just a problem with the button showing recording functioning properly? Others have alluded to no footage when they've successfully turned it off. And that seems to be the case for me too. But there's processes or tasks that are clearly running, and short or shutting down my iPad completely, there doesn’t seem to be a way to get it to stop. Thanks!

Great but just one problem


I really liked this app! The quality is great and you can record as long as you want and it doesn’t cost money or have ads! I would give this app 5 stars, but there is just one problem. I was recording a video of my playing Angry Birds 2 and it was about 30 minutes long. After I finished I went back to Techsmith Capture and watched my recording. Unfortunately, about 20 minutes through it cut out the sound. I didn’t have any microphone on. Just the sound of the game. Everything was working well and the sound just suddenly stopped. I heard that it’s also happening with the IOS screen recorder, too. I’m pretty sure that it is a bug. If you know a solution to fix this problem, that would be really great. Thank you for taking your time to read this!

Why no audio?


So I got this app because I was looking for a screen recorder thinking it will be pretty good. I didn’t like it. So the video quality is good, but it ruined a big part for me. Audio. So what I’m talking about is that when I recorded videos, they only recorded like 10 seconds of audio and leaves the rest silent. The last stretch was when I recorded a vid of me playing war robots while I was playing a awesome song in the background and I was disappointed when it left the rest of the song silent so I am gonna delete this app and maybe look somewhere else and I’m gonna have to take away 3 stars because it took out the audio and no you can’t send me an automated response saying to uninstall and reinstall because no I don’t think it’s a glitch so I don’t think uninstalling and reinstalling is gonna put the audio in so bye bye app, hello finding another better screen recorder that actually records audio.
