Screenr is a web-based screencasting application. Here’s what they say on their homepage:
Instant screencasts for Twitter
Now you can create screencasts for your followers as easily as you tweet. Just click the record button and you’ll have your ready-to-tweet screencast in seconds.
I first heard of Screenr from a forwarded email and decided to try it out. I had been looking for screen recording software for ages, so when I saw Screenr, I was interested.
Screenr was not a disappointment like other screen recorders I’ve seen. It doesn’t:
- Plague you with advertisements
- Add an annoying watermark on to your screen recording
- Require forty programs to download and install just to make one program work
- Have a million buttons that leave you thinking “which button do I press?”
- Expire because it’s a free trial
What it does is simply amazing:
- Nothing to install (provided that you have Java and a web browser)
- Simple to use
- Records everywhere, not just on the web browser
- Allows voice-over narration
- Pause and continue
- Choose the size and location where you want to record
- Publish online automatically in full resolution
- Screencast plays back on almost all operating systems, even iPhone OS
- Download screencasts in a movie format
There’s only one downside to this program: The maximum length that you can record is 5 minutes.
9.5/10. I highly recommend this software for those of you who have been digging for screen recording software with no success. This program really made my day, and I’m sure it will make your day too.
