"Quite good"

June 13, 2011  |  By kishorfarm

 |  Version: Wink 2 build 1050

Pros

Easy to use and with enough functionality to create good looking tutorials.

Cons

It lacks "click effect" and "zoom and pan effects".

Summary

I tried BB FlashBack and DemoCreator before installing Wink, but in the end Wink seemed much more simple to use and gave me what I wanted: a rapid way to do a tutorial in Flash format.

It is true that the other commercial applications had better effects and more complex functionality but for example with DemoCreator the "click effect" was suffering a big delay. I lost like half and hour trying to figure out how to fix it, and in the end I decided to use Wink and to do the tutorial today, not tomorrow.

Being free it is a plus. In this case you get much much more than what you pay.

"Excellent Training Tool - Makes Great Tutorials - FREE!"

November 12, 2009  |  By RFSTech

 |  Version: Wink 2 build 1050

Pros

Very small utility. Downloads and installs quickly and flawlessly. Great tutorials included to get up and running fast. Includes documentation in PDF format. Much better than CamStudio.

Cons

None that I can think of.

Summary

I searched for a utility to capture all activity while in an application in order to create simple tutorials. I initially ignored this program as it did not seem very popular. Based on popularity and reviews, I downloaded and tried CamStudio 2.1 and 2.5beta. Both were VERY buggy so I gave up on them. I have access to Adobe Captivate 4.0 but that seemed like complete overkill and a very steep learning curve for what I was trying to accomplish (simple tutorials). I decided to give Wink 2.0 a try and am very glad I did. It downloaded and installed flawlessly. The website for the product (www.debugmode.com/wink) was very helpful and has a user forum for Wink. The two included tutorials (installed with the product) were very helpful to get up and running fast. It also comes with documentation in PDF format (also very helpful). All-in-all a very polished product for free. Highly recommended.

"Not a tech geek, stick with CamStudio"

October 15, 2008  |  By Taegugki

 |  Version: Wink 2 build 1050

Pros

Can't think of any...

Cons

No panning feature, very stationary, not designed for the non-tech savvy computer users. I have a life, I want a program where I don't need to learn how to use it, I want a program I could use right out of the box.

"fab for a free tool"

August 05, 2008  |  By karenmaryobrien

 |  Version: Wink 2 build 1050

Pros

easy frame-by-frame editing, smooth good quality capture, export to swf or jpeg/png, great annotation tools

Cons

took a while to figure out that to export to a graphic format (e.g. jpeg/png) you have to use File -> Export to HTML.

Summary

Great for animated screencasts, but also useful for simple screenshots
