Latest reviews

  • (2022-10-05) Tyler Tomaszewski: They switched the pricing model. It used to be free to record as many as videos as you like if they were under 5 minutes. Now? No you get 10 max. Out. I'll find something else
  • (2022-09-26) Angel Dreammur: Not worth it. I record with it on a roblox app since I was making an animation and planned on posting, just to see that its super laggy. Tried again but not using the roblox app and it was still laggy. Don't recomend. And as soon as I added it, my computer sounds like a microwave now. DO NOT GET.
  • (2022-09-25) Tsuki Nii: terrible. the editing software doesnt even work half of the time and its so time consuming trying to make it work. i needed convenience and this is not it. so frustrated because screencastify is my final resort right now and it is not cooperating with me. so disappointed
  • (2022-09-21) Garrett Dunlop: so cool i my a intro with the 0 dollar package.
  • (2022-09-13) Olive M: It was fine for a while. I uninstalled it just to see if there were any better recorders, next time I signed in after reinstalling whenever I would press record it looks like it was trying to record but it just fails. PLEASE HELP!
  • (2022-09-07) Fairies Feast: BEST EXTENSION EVER!
  • (2022-08-30) JOAO VITOR DE ALMEIDA AIRES CORREIA: Fica crashando. Perdi muito tempo da minha vida. HORRÍVEL!
  • (2022-08-28) Black Viper262: Worst everrrrrrrrrr extension .. why it need google drive permission ? without google drive permission i cant record anything ? i never recommend this extension also i reported to google .. you guys have no right to access my google drive and see my personal data..
  • (2022-08-23) Boyd Petrie: UPDATE - 2022-08-23: Recent changes to the pricing and interface have made me re-evaluate my review and reduced the rating. This is still a decent extension, but it is limited to Chrome while other services span multiple browsers. The best thing Screencastify has is the editor which is fairly limited but it's a nice added perk. However, the move to hosting video on Screencastify's own servers has made me look elsewhere. I like having videos stored in Google Drive, which is what keeps me using it, but now it also seems to store them on Screencastify servers (which I don't want). There are other options out which are much more affordable which offer similar features. Unfortunately, this prices me out from using this. Windows has built-in screen capture, so using this was just a shortcut to something I can natively do for free in Windows. It is no longer needed. ORIGINAL REVIEW This is one of the finest Chrome extensions I've ever come across. It is well-designed, a lovely interface with a sleek design and a good UX. That it interfaces nicely with Google Drive is icing on the cake. While it is not a full-fledged product for professionals (it has some limitations that training devs might seek), it is more than adequate for anyone wanting to create quick demos or displays of issues with their systems. Amazingly well done!
  • (2022-08-23) Chris Gordon: i make you lag so hard when yo game and it froze my screen
  • (2022-08-20) Milan Mor Markovics: Google regisztrációval lehet belépni csak. Hát persze.
  • (2022-08-18) bill smith: Had it installed for almost 5 minutes. Would not let me use it unless I gave it permission to access my Google Drive files.... which I did, but it wouldn't sign in to google! "sign in page" just kept spinning and spinning. I'll find something else... and looking at other reviews, this is broken and no longer records anyway. I will send the developer an invoice for my wasted 5, now 6 minutes.

  • (2022-08-12) Romona Foster: UPDATED: This extension no longer works. I just spent weeks trying to resolve this with support with no resolution. Changing my review from five stars to one star. Sorry to see it go. I really like Screencastify as a tool to create my video tutorials. So far, it's worked really well.
  • (2022-08-10) Byron Injeeli: Awful - constantly causes browser crashes.
  • (2022-08-09) Conner Pierce: For being free and pretty easy to use I liked this very useful.
  • (2022-08-05) Hustle labs: Just no fit for purpose in BETA. Can't even download the video you've recorded. Avoid.
  • (2022-08-04) Adrian Ciocălău: The best screen recording app I ever used. Nothing to complain about!
  • (2022-07-28) Brooke Summers: Literally obsessed with this tool and my coworkers and clients have been loving these as well. Such an effective way to communicate things to others with a visual without having to hope on a screenshare.
  • (2022-07-26) Tyler The Creator: I can't even use this damm thing because whenever I'm recording, it immediatly pauses the recording, transfers me to a tab that says keep this tab open while you're recording, and then stops my recording altogether. And then it says error 500, but I've looked everywhere, and I haven't seen a single thing about error 500. What a garbage extension.
  • (2022-07-20) Naveen Nakka: good
  • (2022-07-19) Barbara Pegg: I do like screencastify, but it would not let me edit and export my videos. When i edit my video and finish, I try to export to screencastify but it showed an oops message. I tried many times but same thing. So I went to the website to get some help and I did some things, which made me sign out of screencastify. And when I went back to my account, my video was gone and the edited one was also gone.

  • (2022-07-12) Twilight sparkles: Omg i love this app thank you!!!
  • (2022-07-11) SamTurner: I am not sure what other people are talking about. I've used this extension for over four years and can confidently say that IT WORKS. No issues, no complaints. Need to save videos but the quality is low? Screencastify. Attend meetings with important notes? Screencastify. Songs that can't be downloaded but can still be played? Screencastify. It is my recommendation for anyone that needs something recorded on Chrome. Not downloading properly? It's your device, not the extension. Try troubleshooting by sending an email as opposed to leaving negative reviews when it could be solved within a couple of minutes with your patience And for those whining about free vs paid, guess what. It's the real world, people need to make money. Be happy that there's at least a free version, compared to other companies with only a "free trial". Why don't you go use that garbage Mobizen or whatever?
  • (2022-07-10) sarah kawaii: muito bom mais eu gravo vídeos para o yt e eu queria gravar 30 minutos mais não cansigo porque não acho aonde então por isso 3 estrelas

  • (2022-06-12) Darrion Flowers: To whoever made Screencastify It's really fun but every time I click the free plan for unlimited it takes me to the extension. I have no clue pertaining to why but if you could figure something out that'd be great.
  • (2022-06-10) hayeon hsiao: IT'S GOOD BUT SOME TIME I CAN'T UPLOAD ONTO MY YOUTUBE
  • (2022-06-09) Juan Carlos Gutiérrez Martínez: Es una herramienta útil para proyectos básicos. Le hace falta una licencia educativa y al menos 45 minutos de longitud para edición de vídeos. Le hace falta la opción de separación de la pista de audio del vídeo; también le hace falta la opción de trabajar en varias capas... Es una aplicación (A la fecha 2022/06/08), aun inmadura.
  • (2022-06-09) Naga raja: This is the bestest appp which i have seen so i have a problem that when we click on upgrade and it tells that for free we can make max 30 min video but i cant i can make max 5 min thats all pls help me
