When you’re reviewing an application or just talking about it, the first thing you’d want to do is take screenshots of the same. Now, we’ve already taught you how-to take screenshots on your Android device, iPhone and Symbian devices. It’s pretty simple, taking a screenshot, but there are some advanced ways too.
Recording a screen is even better than just taking a screenshot. For example, if you’re reviewing a really cool app or testing something on your device and want to show it others, screenshots are not cool. The person who’d be reading your review won’t really enjoy looking at the picture, unless there’s a video in the end. Now this kind-of-tutorial is for Android users only and yes you’d require an Android device that’s rooted.
We will be using an app to record android screen and share it on your blog, YouTube or wherever you want. So, since this is not really a step by step tutorial, you won’t have to break your head about following it.
The android screen recorder app we’ll be using to capture the screen on your Android device is known as ScreenCast & Screen Recorder. This app can record your screen at 15-50 frames per second, which is quite fast, and also take screenshots and share them on the go. And that’s why this app is awesome. It can record your screen, edit and rename recorded files and also benchmark your Android device.
How to use Screencast to Record Android screen?
After you’ve downloaded this app, you will have to select the Record button to start recording your screen.
The recorded items will be stored in your Internal Storage. It has it’s own gallery to view and play the recordings.
Currently, the screenshot feature and also a pretty useful live streaming option is being worked on by it’s developers. Expect them to be available soon. However, since this is such an amazing and useful application, it will be priced at $2.99 for the full version without ads and no recording limitations. Yes, this means that the free version will have a limitation of 30 seconds.
Do let us know if you are using any other app to record the screen of Android devices (tablet and Phones)?
