Editors' Review

+

Screen Recorder is a lightweight tool designed to help you take screen captures and videos quickly and efficiently, with just a few clicks of the mouse. There are several options included for taking a video, and you can capture high-quality video through any of them.

Pros

Recording options: Through this program, you can record video coming from a webcam, from a selected area of your screen, or a combination. With the picture-in-picture feature, you can record yourself describing what you're doing at the same time as you're demonstrating it on the screen.

Cons

Jumbled interface: This program's interface is not the most intuitive or well laid-out. It opens set to the Camera input option by default, but if you don't have one hooked up or turned on, nothing else on the interface is clickable, and you get an error message when you try to start a recording. After a little poking around, it's possible to get the app off that setting and onto another type of input; but instructions or guidance of some sort would be very helpful, especially for inexperienced users.

No Stop button: When you start a screen capture recording through this program, the main interface window is automatically minimized. But that means that you can't stop the recording without opening that window up again, which will likely interfere with whatever it was you were previously recording. You can set the window not to minimize, but then it remains on the screen and may compromise your shot as well. The addition of an independent Stop button somewhere on the screen during recording would eliminate this complication.

Bottom Line

Screen Recorder is a good, basic program for making videos of yourself or what you're doing onscreen. It doesn't have the nicest interface or a ton of other features, but it's free. So if all you want to do is quickly record, this may be a good option to check out.

"Simple, easy to use screen recorder."

February 26, 2015  |  By Stefania A. Martinez

 |  Version: Screen Recorder 1.0.0.5

Pros

I wasn't so confident about using freeware but yet I checked out this software and I really found it useful and easy to use. People might say it doesn't have many features but the good thing is it let me make videos of myself using the webcam easily. I could take screen shots too.

Cons

A simple tool; I found it easy to use. No problems!

February 23, 2015  |  By Matt T. Virgil

The Screen Recorder, a lightweight tool, helps in taking screen captures or videos quickly. An efficient tool. A few clicks are enough for using it. Those who want to create tutorials or show video games and projects to others will find the app useful.

"Full of junk and useless"

February 19, 2015  |  By garfieldgurl

 |  Version: Screen Recorder 1.0.0.5

Pros

-Able to decline to every junk software they wanted to install

Cons

-Not able to by pass their browser installation binki something.
-Every option was grayed out, so I couldn't even try the program

Summary

When clicking on Start recording (the only button on the program I could click on), I was asked to choose video and audio option. Well genius, how am I supposed to do that if all the other buttons are grayed out. I'm a little suspicious of all the 5 stars reviews this thing got. Uninstalled!

"Tool worth downloading"

February 18, 2015  |  By Debbie E. Marks

 |  Version: Screen Recorder 1.0.0.5

Pros

I must say that this tool is a great one especially if you are into online teaching. The tool as the name suggests records the screen and every activity that happens on the screen. The same recordings can be used as presentations or classroom tutorials.

Cons

Comes with some flaws such as you cannot stop the recording but the app. Interface could be better.

"Malware-Ridden Junk. BEWARE!!!!"

January 26, 2015  |  By davintosh

 |  Version: Screen Recorder 1.0.0.4

Pros

Seems to be relatively easy to get rid of with Malwarebytes.

Not only did the software not work, but the installer also put some crapware on the computer. Less than worthless.

Summary

Don't waste your time with this. Garbage.
