Apowersoft Mac Screen Recorder 2.8

An efficient video recording and converting utility for Mac.
2.9.2 (See all)

Apowersoft Mac Screen Recorder is way more than its name implies. Besides helping you capture your screen activity, this program also enables you to convert your video recordings to dozens of media formats, burn the resulted clips to a DVD, or publish your movies on your YouTube channel with ease.

You can use this application to record video tutorials, webcam sessions, game walkthroughs, and many others. The output settings are very simple to configure and you don't need much video editing experience in order to get the quality results you require.

The program lets you record a certain area from your screen or the entire desktop, animate mouse clicks if necessary, and select the proper audio settings. The best thing to do before starting any video recording is to configure the output settings from the Options panel. You can choose a destination folder and an output profile from the General window.

Once you finish your recording, you can convert the video to another media format, burn it to a DVD or publish it online for other to see. The output quality is excellent and the exporting process takes a very small amount of time to be completed.

Another great aspect is that you can control the way Apowersoft Mac Screen Recorder operates by using global hotkeys. The shortcut keys are listed in the Options -> Hotkey panel and in the main menu of the app (located on your status bar).

The only thing that bothers me about this tool is that you need to install an additional utility (a sound plugin) in order to use Apowersoft Mac Screen Recorder. Still, it doesn't take long to complete this step.

To conclude, this program proves to be a reliable solution for recording video content on your Mac. It's effective, easy to configure, and affordable.
