I didn't need to read any instructions, the app is self explanatory, especially if you have used an app of this type in the past. I am thrilled with my purchase.



Good tool for screencast recording on a Mac that saves video in MP4 which is playable on any platform.



Really easy to use. The interface is very simple which I like. I use it mainly for screenshotting but screen recording works just as great.
