Have you ever been asked how to use a software? Screen recording allows you to record actions that you make on your screen and do with those recordings whatever you would like (share or save). I have compiled a list of the best screen recorders. Give these free applications a try and find the one that best suits your needs. Some of the applications below are totally free, while others have various limitations, such as watermarks and limited recording times.
There are two versions of Screen-O-Matic available, the free version and the Pro version. Some of the limitations of the free version include: 15 minutes of free recording and the Screen-O-Matic watermark is displayed on all videos. However, the Pro version has a lot of features that you may find useful if you are in need of the bells and whistles. Screen-O-Matic is very easy to use and downloading the software to your computer is optional in order to use the software, as it can run inside of your browser. [visit]
