Every now and then it’s good to have the ability to take a screenshot of what is on your screen at the time, Android finally implemented this into the core OS in Ice Cream Sandwich but what about video? This is where Screencast Video Recorder comes in, it’s an app that does require root access but it allows you to capture a video (with the option of commentary) of what is going on on your Android device.
The app costs $4.84 but there is an option for a Trial version –Screencast Video Recorder Demo and if you’re really serious the company who supplies it offers an option for 24 Hour refund as they understand the 15 minute Google Play window doesn’t allow you to test all the features.
I’ve used this previously in the Google Wallet and NFC Tag posts I did, but it lagged behind when I got my Galaxy Nexus as the app does not support either Tegra2/3 devices or the Galaxy Nexus. But it DOES support the Nexus 4 so I can start doing videos again! Check it out on Google Play, it’s available for devices running Android 2.2 and up and is 3.3MB in size.
