BB FlashBack Standard Edition is an incredibly easy-to-use program that allows you to create video recordings of on-screen activities. The program's cool features and intuitive design make it a great choice for presentations, tutorials, and more.

The program's interface is quite well-designed, and getting started with the recording features is easy. A small (but optional) toolbar appears next to the your system tray, with buttons for Record, Stop, and Play, as well as access to a more detailed menu. When you're ready to record, just click the button, and a brief wizard appears that allows you to customize settings for display, sound, Webcam, and more. You can have the program record the full screen, a particular region of the screen, or just one window. We thought it was especially cool that you can run the Webcam at the same time you're recording in full-screen mode; the Webcam recording then appears inset within the full-screen view and can be moved and resized as needed. Anyone who finds themselves using the same settings over and over again can make use of the Quick Record feature, which remembers the settings from the previous recording session. The program's editing tools allow you to crop videos and add markers, text, images, sounds, and more. Overall, we were quite impressed with BB FlashBack Standard's versatile features, and we think it's the best program of this type that we've seen.

BB FlashBack Standard Edition has a 30-day trial period. The program installs and uninstalls without issues. We highly recommend this program to all users.
