Teacher in China
Having to learn on the fly, in the middle of my own quarantine how to do online lessons for my students was anxiety inducing and I had a steep learning curve. There were many issues in the begining with my students unable to open files etc. - all of us were learning. Once I got Record It, I was able to go "all Kahn Academy" on this by recording my powerpoints/embedded videos. My students are enjoying the lessons a lot. Recently there was a glitch and I could not use it - but it seems to have sorted itself out after I reloaded the app and shut down my laptop. Happy teacher riding this out still in China week 9.

Worked Great, Til I Paid For It
I feel as if they stole money out my pocket and there’s no way to get a hold of anyone that I’ve seen to get your money back. I teach, and I used this from literally the day that the Covid shutdown started to keep my students working. Without telling me there was a trial period that ended, it just stopped recording anything past a few minutes. After playing with it, I realized that there was a paid license. The lack of an alert cost me several hours, but I paid for it and it worked. Then, when it was time to update, it simply stopped working again. So, I’m out the money for the license and now having to locate a different program because they don’t have it set up for you to even express a concern. Honestly, I hope places like this fold when this is over. It’s really no different than if they went in my wallet and took the money, but I don’t have the chance to physically confront them for it, which I think I’d prefer over the money back.

Excellent App - Lifesaver!
Took a little while for me to get used to the features, but once I've had this working, I can't imagine running workshops and having calls now without this tool. The bonus ability to save as a GIF file is also pretty handy for making memes. One mistake I made earlier on was not selecting the right area on my screen with the marquee tool for recordings. I assumed that if I selected "window", it would automatically record the entire window that was selected. However, if you accidentally click into that window in the beginning, you may actually limit the size of the window and create a smaller recording area. I made this mistake, and realized later that I had only recorded a tiny 15 by 15 pixel box of a Hangouts conference call I was running. I still had the audio recording, so it was still useful, but I wish I could have followed a tutorial video the first time I used this app, so that I did not have to make this mistake. Overall, this is a great app that seems very stable, and never crashes on me! It just takes a little practice to use properly. NOTE: I use a Macbook Pro on OS Catalina

User Friendly
The app is very is easy to use even if you aren't very tech savy. The features are simple and self explanatory. I've had no issue with any of the functionality. There are two things you should know. The free version only lets you record three minute video, which means you'll have to pay if you need longer videos. The other thing is that I can't figure out how to have both me and the screen recording in the same shot. Usually, when I'm presenting a slideshow, it's helpful to have the slide plus my face in the corner. It makes for more engaging content.

Revised review...
A good basic screen recording utility. Good enough that I purchased the license. After you install Record It, it becomes the default player for MP4 files. If you prefer another app like QuickTime to open your recordings by default, find an MP4 file, right click and select 'Get Info.' Then select QuickTime Player in the drop down menu under 'Open with.' Next, click the 'Change All' button right below.

Unintuitive, strange sound setup
I got the Pro version of this (which is not inexpensive!) to record some streaming events on my Mac since the recordiing function Screenshot app that came with the OS just stopped working. How tough can it be to produce a similar app? Evidently, it's not that easy, because these folks are not even close. Instead of recording internally from the internal speakers like Screenshot, it's set to record the sound as it emerges from the speakers--along with everything else in the room! So, if you happen to cough or move your chair, all that's captured in the recording. Who thought that was a good idea? While can actually imagine some uses for this setup, it shouldn't be the default, and there should be an option to make the audio capture internal. With sound being recorded in this way, the result is garbled and, frankly, terrible. I would not recommend this and I wish I could get a refund. I did use their contact info to try to get information on how to do an end run around this foolish setup, but never got a response. Not happy at all.

Does not record in-system audio
Downloaded this purely for the claim that it could record in-system audio, which is the second feature listed. The description even distinguishes "computer audio" from "audio input device" and "system build-in microphone" (a nonsense phrase mostly used by this specific program; I should refrain from explaining what I took this to mean, lest I assist the scammers in appearing legitimate to future marks.) If you try to record in-system audio, it will direct you to a page called "Why Does Soundflower Installation Failed on Mac?" In most contexts, I don't mind grammatical mistakes at all, but look up signs of a scam and they're sure to be on the list. More importantly, Soundflower has been unsupported and considered risky to download for a long time.

Works great! Highly recommend!
I just needed a simple free app that I could do a couple screen recordings for my customers and this worked great! Within 15 mintues of downloading it, I was already recording a video :) It did take me a little bit to figure out how to allow the screen recording in my System Preferences, but once I figured that out, I was good to go! I love how easy and simple this is to use! Thank you SO MUCH for offering a free version for people that don't need all the "bells and whistles" right away!

Easy to use!
Record It does an excellent job at recording your screen without taking a lot of system resources. Recommend it for anyone who is considering an app with the features offered by Record It. Love how convenient it is to sit on the status bar and you can easy select to start recording. My favorite feature is the timer that appears on the status bar as you record. Very convenient feature!

Works OK, depends on what you're doing
I had a lot of trouble recording tutorials of After Effects. I don't know if it was becasue After Effects has a lot of information to process, but it would always freeze up and the audio would get all glitchy and often times it would just crash and not save my recording. Frustrating! I am teaching my classes online during the pandemic and I need this to be reliable and not take hours and hours to work. When it works, it's great... when it doesn't, it's very annoying.

Great UX, simple and works - would like to loop GIFs
This is a great interface, simple and does what it says. I immediately upgraded to get GIF exports as that’s what I was looking for. Wish there was a setting for controlling loop for GIFs, wish I could click to start recording rather than the countdown…makes it very hard to capture animations at the starting point you’d like. For this reason the app was not a great fit for me, I wish I’d saved my $ but great design overall.

Works well
The app works very well. But the 3 minute max is a little bit annoying. In order to record for as long as you can you have to buy a 30 dollar recorder. I can't afford a 30 dollar upgrade. And since its only 3 minutes you cant record for very long. The 3 minute limit pushed aside, it is a very good screen recorder. The audio works and it does save to my files. And even if someone can afford the pro version it will be very good for them. I just wish the pro version would be less expensive.

Fine app
I've used this app in both Free and Paid mode and it's worked great for me all the time. I even recourded 120 minute webinars with it. Video and Audio were fine and adjustable. I would suggest poeple read the description, the limits of the Free version and play wit it a bit before leaving reviews.

Love it
This app is user friendly, you can use with ease, record your voice, record your screen, record a recording. I do recommend that if you use an OSX that you record sounds in increments no more than 30 seconds. For some reason it long recordings stop and you get a metalic sound. Otherwise, I love the app.

Simple but watch your File Size
Works perfect for what I need even though my recent update only allows for 5 Minutes of Screen Recording. I don't need a long recording though but watch your file size, pick your Quality and Recording Size properly or you'll have to downsize the Video for emails.

I have a record it app for both my phone and my laptop. This one, which I use on my laptop, is trully an amazing. I've been using for months now and it has never failed me. I don't even remember if I got it for free, but if I didn't, whatever I spent on was worth it. I definitely recommend this one!!

Time limit on Record it
Everything else bout this app is good like a minmiastic, clean, safe design, ect. i tired it out and it was super easy to import or download the video which was super nice, because most recording apps arent like that. I was just so dissapointed to see that without any upgrades you can only record for 5 mins!!!!! i wished that was advertized, i was looking to record a final presentaion through a free app, i cannot afford any extensitons beacuse i am a student.

I did not like that we have to pay
I've seen better screen recording apps with editing and incoorperated audio free of charge. I'm sorry, i'm not paying a subscription just to screen record a screen. It's stupid! Aside from that, it works smoothly. The range of the windows you can broadcast is limited which is a little disappointing, but overall it records smoothly with no crashes so I guess that's a plus 🤷🏽‍♀️ (it all depends on what device you're using, I'm on mac)

Was great until the update...
Ugh…Mac installed the newest update automatically and now there is a 3 minute limit to videos. It was perfect for my class lessons that I now have to teach online, but now it’s pointless for me. I need at least 5-10 minutes for mini lessons and instructions. Sad, that I lost the perfect app that was making my teaching successful in the online platform. :( New update now has changed audio recording ability. So the screen capture videos I make don’t record the audio.

Solid App
Installation of the system extension required for this app to work properly was a bit of a challenge. However, once that installation had been completed, the app worked as promised. BTW, response to requests for assistance from seller throughout the installation was prompt and professional.

Ok-ish as of Feb 2022
Granted, this product will likely continue to be improved. At this time, I credit the developer for producing this much-needed product. I could not find anything better for my laptop, so I spent the $20 for the Pro package. However, The interface is confusing. I had trouble getting sound to record. If I left my screen recording for a few hours, I returned to find that the application had stopped recording and the entire recording was lost. User support response time was reasonably quick, BUT the content of the support was poor. They did not address my concerns and either did not understand my question or hid behind a pretense of not understanding it.

Great App, But So Short Videos
Don't get me wrong this app is great for recording. It's simplistic and intuitive. The only complaint I have is that you can only record three minute videos for free, which is irritating. I downloaded this because it was one of the only free recording apps for Mac. I understand the company needs money, but at least give us more time for videos.

Largest GIFs Ever!
Sure, you can record and save as GIF but you have no control over frame rate. All the GIF exports I've ever made are in the megabytes in file size. Using a FREE ONLINE GIF CONVERTER allows me to set the framerate of the GIF which makes them usable. I spent $20 only to realize that I can use the MacOS screen recorder and free online apps to get the result I need. This app literally cost me $20 and I can't use it for anything. 🤷🏽‍♂️

Recordings are blurry
Used this app to record a very important meeting. In reviewing the meeting, I see that all the text on my desktop is blurry due to low recording quality. I don't see the ability to change the recording quality and blurry recordings are pretty useless. Now I am screwed because I can barely makeout the text on my browser in my recordings.

Audio Does Not Work
This was a great app, and I had decided to upgrade! However, it only works with plug-ins that are not approved by the App Store, and when you bypass it in the settings it still does not work. Now the free version is only allowing a 3 minute recording time. I am a teacher trying to conduct distance learning during the pandemic. Needless to say, I am disappointed.

Five Minute Demo - Horrible Interface
Took four tries to get my first screen capture. First it made pop-ups telling me I needed to download a separate audio driver just to get system or mic sounds. Then it popped up a warning that the free version only lasts 5 minutes. Then didn't remember my settings (gotta tell it to do that, it's not the default). This piece of junk nagware belongs in the 1990s.

Horrible for Gamers
This screen recorder is horrible for gamers unless you are willing to pay monthly for things you can get on most screen recorders for free. It ends every five minutes and brings you back to your desktop, even if you are mid-game. You can get killed mid-fight when the recording finishes. And you have to pay for it to record for long amounts of time. It is just a waste of space

It says I have to download something else to get audio. WELL.. The description says it has audio. RIP OFF. And the third party to aloow sound gets reject by Apple software.
