"Works perfectly to record streaming video with audio!!!"

January 20, 2015  |  By bobspez

 |  Version: Apowersoft Free Screen Recorder 1.4

Pros

It's really nice to find free software that does what it claims and doesn't load any junk on your computer. I used this to capture and save a streaming video presentation. Extremely clear and easy interface and process. Couldn't be easier.

Cons

None at all detected.

Summary

With all the scam software that claims to do streaming video capture, then either loads your PC with garbage and/or requires a paid upgrade to make it work properly, this software is almost unbelievably honest and functional and totally free with full capability.

"Great Free Software - Works Well"

November 27, 2014  |  By ACCCCCCCCCCCC

 |  Version: Apowersoft Free Screen Recorder 1.4

Pros

Free.
Intuitive interface and easy to use. Sensible defaults, easy to change them if necessary.
Good quality recording.
Unlimited recording time in free version.
You can record part of the screen, the whole screen, just audio or from your webcam.
Records sound as well as video (which another one I tried didn't).

Cons

Only records in WMV format. A converter is provided but this is an online converter that uses Java. You can use something like Any Video Converter if you want to convert to another format.

Summary

Start the program; click record; select the screen area you want; a 3 second countdown appears and you are off. Pause or stop whenever you want. Simple as that. Great free software.

"It Did What It Was Suppose to Do"

June 08, 2014  |  By miwi98

 |  Version: Apowersoft Free Screen Recorder 1.4

Pros

This little software recorded what was on my computer screen plus allowed me to crop what I wanted to record with such ease. The video is in WMV format while other like software use AVI which takes up a lot of disk space.

Cons

None so far just got it today.

Summary

I was really surprise by this software and the additional software that I declined did not install automatically and that is a good thing plus my homepage did not change.

"Not what it says"

September 24, 2013  |  By Jac99712

 |  Version: Apowersoft Free Screen Recorder 1.2.4

Pros

You can do pretty much anything you want easily.

Cons

Limited recording time, along with it says "free", but after the download it wants you to pay to be able to use everything.

Summary

Basically, this is good once you actually buy it, but don't expect much out of it initially.

"Too much malware included in download"

August 10, 2013  |  By elecmonk

 |  Version: Apowersoft Free Screen Recorder 1.1.5

Pros

N/A - couldn't use program

Cons

As soon as I installed the program, my computer was attacked with malware doing such things as redirecting my web browser's home page and default search engine, etc. I uninstalled this, and all the other programs that came "attached" to it, and cleaned up the malware as best as possible. I wasn't even going to try using the intended software after that.

"Didn't record"

August 10, 2013  |  By ArizonaBrian

 |  Version: Apowersoft Free Screen Recorder 1.1.5

Pros

You can frame/crop a specific part of your desktop and have it record just that. I was using Skype and framed the Skype window.

Cons

Nothing recorded - although it gave the appearance it was recording, the actual length of time was a split second when I tried to play back the recording.

In the middle of Skype an adware popped-up for Apowersoft's website. Not sure if it would have been recorded the pop-up window instead of Skype...had it recorded in the first place...or not.

Summary

Just plain doesn't work. It did uninstall fine from the control panel...from what I can tell.
