Last week we at Articulate released a brand spankin’ new product called Screenr, which allows you to easily record your screen and share it anywhere online: Twitter, YouTube, your website, your blog, email, etc. You can also playback any screencast via iPhone, and you can download an .MP4 QuickTime version to use in Articulate-powered projects or anywhere else.
When we launched, ReadWriteWeb posted a review that was syndicated in The New York Times Online the next day. CNET contacted us to review the new app, and wrote a review called Easiest screencasts ever: Screenr, declaring that Screenr is “the best option for creating screencasts fast and getting them posted immediately. All you do is let the Java-powered recording app load from the Screenr Web page and hit a button to record a screencast of up to five minutes.”
And yup, it really is that easy. Here’s all you do to create a screencast:
- Go to Screenr.com.
- Click one of the Record buttons.
- Size the recording frame to meet your needs:
- Click the red record button to record and narrate.
- Click Done to finish and preview your screencast.
- Type an interesting description and click the Tweet It! button to publish & tweet your screencast:
- Optionally, check the box to Don’t tweet this screencast, and click the Post It! button to publish.
After that, sharing your screencast is just as easy. Here’s a quick screencast I created that shows you how to share it:
The review on Mashable says this: “If you want to create a simple and straightforward video tutorial that’s less than 5 minutes, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better tool.”
Comments from Twitter users echo that sentiment, and you can browse some of @Screenr’s favorites here.
