      "Infuriatingly awful. Internet theft. Lesson learned."

      October 16, 2013   |   By steveturner2112

      Version: iShowU 1.92.7

      Pros

      It downloaded to my computer. That's the best thing I can say about it. My FULL (and paid-for) VERSION does not work anymore (it barely worked when I bought it a few years back.)

      Cons

      Everything. Utter, utter SH*T. Caveat emptor.

      Summary

      iShowUHow2ThrowURMoneyAway. Take $50 out of your pocket, and then set it on fire. If you're still feeling that cavalier with your money, then buy this hunk of crap.

      "Stopped working for me Oct 8 2012. No support."

      October 11, 2012   |   By FloridaJo

      Version: iShowU 1.92.3

      Pros

      Worked okay for several years.

      Cons

      Constantly had an update to download before using.
      Latest update cause video to be constantly 'compressing' without ever finishing.
      Video was unusable.
      No support, no help from forums.

      Summary

      Don't work, can't get support.
      Free QuickTime player is better.

      "Hours of frustration"

      October 02, 2012   |   By rushproject

      Version: iShowU 1.92.3

      Pros

      Easy to use with Final Cut Pro X

      Cons

      Lot of bugs. And I simply ignore crashes.

      Summary

      Already prepared raw footage for and published several screencasts using this software. However I am afraid today I am doing my last session. After each clip sent to Final Cut, I have to delete it from iShowU and restart the program. Otherwise it keeps overwriting all new clips with the content of the first one. Weird, but I got used to this "feature". Just copy, delete and restart. But today it started to include video from my web cam into the clips at random (well, it seems this happens each time I click the iPhone emulator window). Just crawled out from under my desk, pulling the webcam cable out, hopefully will film the last episode in the next 5 minutes and this will be the last time I use this software...

      "waste of time"

      July 23, 2012   |   By 19jaguar57

      Version: iShowU 1.92.1

      Pros

      looks cute

      Cons

      Takes hours to upload the final video and then there is zero information on how to access it. The service people didn't even know where it was automatically uploaded to. The idiot told me to look for it in my YouTube account. It wasn't there. How could it be if I didn't enter into my account for an upload? Fools don't even know their own software. Don't waste your time with these idiots and their haphazard software.

      Summary

      crap

      Version: iShowU 1.91.4

      Pros

      great product. works really well..just one LARGE PFOBLEM

      i paid for and downloaded the Pro version, only to receive the standard version, and after numerous support emails and phone calls saying this and sending them the invoice copy, they dont respond!!!

      They responded to a basic help question initially but wont honor my purchase...

      beware

      Summary

      Beware when purchasing. not to be trusted

      December 04, 2010   |   By TheoT--2008

      Pros

      Flexible. Can select any size section of the screen

      Cons

      I have had no problems with it

      "only demo so far but excellent & simple probably buy."

      March 04, 2010   |   By aubweaver

      Version: iShowU 1.76

      Pros

      Easy to download and get going, simple to understand, works with the quicktime format therefore fast forward,stop,reverse,playback etc etc. good quality playback.

      Cons

      For what I want..NO CONS..!

      Summary

      simple to get going, easy to understand works with quicktime format I'm not out to create any great 'movies' I just want to record live online data and analyse it later.
      Would be excellent for youtubing or promo demo stuff. Good quality playback for what I need which is readable text.

      "Great alternative to Snapzpro"

      July 19, 2009   |   By tony_sabbath

      Version: iShowU 1.72

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      My number 1 complaint with Snapzpro was that you could not change the temporary cache folder location. I dont know why they think people want to use their OS drive as a scratch disk?


      iShowU you allows you to easily change the temp/scratch disk location to another drive.
      iShowU also easily allows you to choose QuickTime compatible formats/ codecs for easy output.

      iShowU is also cheaper, even the pro HD version is cheaper than SnapzPro.
      Both normal and HD versions works on Leopard 10.5.7 at the time of me writing this.

      Great to see Kiwi developers working hard.

      "Save & Replace does not work"

      October 23, 2008   |   By S Mayer

      Version: iShowU 1.68

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      I have been testing iShowU and comparing with other tools. Works quite well and is fairly intuitive.

      IN my testing though, I found a small but annoying bug...if you try to save a recording with the same name as an existing file and ask to replace the original, iShowU still proceeds with the recording but at the end, the original file is not replaced.

      Where did the recording go? (I suspect it is only in the temp directory). NO new file gets created.

      Please fix.
