Worked great but not anymore?

Writing this review is probably a little premature because I deleted the app and haven’t tried re-installing it yet. I will say first though it was a great app and I made a lot of really cool videos using it while playing PUBG Mobile. It worked flawlessly until about a week ago. When I would go to my control panel and press the record button it would count down as usual and the icon would turn red like usual and I would start playing the game only to go back to the control panel to cut it off and it would already be off. I checked my pictures to see if it recorded anything and there would not be any new videos. It happened every time I tried to use it. To the developers; I’m gonna re-install it and see what happens then. If it fixes it I will make corrections to this review. If the problem still persists I will contact you guys. Btw, I checked all outlets of troubleshooting it like storage space and permissions and all is good.


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!
