- (2020-04-16) Ali Vafaei: I usually don't leave any reviews in stores but this extension is incredibly great; it really support all way you want 😍 I don't know if there is any bug in it or not because I just added it and checked if it supports my mind map. Thanks for thinking before developing 😉

- (2020-04-15) Dtayvionna Allen: I HATED THIS EXTENSION! BC IT STOP MY YT VIDEO AT 5 MIN AS I WASH FILMING AND TALKING TO MY SUBSCRIBES ABOUT HACKS! AND THE WORST THING IS THAT IT DID NOT TELL ME! I WASTED MY TIME ON THIS EXTENSION AND HATED IT! have a good day or night :D and blessings<3

- (2020-04-14) JACK EXTRAS: I Love this. Ive used it for years and dont want to change that!
- (2020-04-14) Ryan McGroarty: This is a pretty good screen recorder. I can do parts for my videos bc of the 5 minute limit.

- (2020-04-13) BillyBobJoe The Pro: dude i hate this this is literally the worst extension EVER
- (2020-04-13) Mike Fletcher: Because of the COVID, I am teaching lessons online using videos. This is the best screen recording software mostly because of the ease of use. It saves directly to Google classroom, which took out a couple of steps for me. The only request I would have would be to display a counter so I can see how long my video is getting. I tend to get long-winded, and that would help.
- (2020-04-13) Siraj Uz Salehin: The screen recoding is so smooth. I am very satisfy with that :) Geat work , keep going.

- (2020-04-13) elsa ines fierro sanchez: muy buena
- (2020-04-13) Wolfie Desu: The free version only records to 5 minutes you have to pay for premium to record more. They tell you that after you record more than 5 minutes and deletes the footage
- (2020-04-13) Dylan Vlogs: this app sucks i tried to record but it kept crashing definitely do not recommend

- (2020-05-12, v:1.39.47-de6764c7) Jennifer Crouch: Accessibility support
I have a student with a visual impairment that I work with through the NJ Commission for the Blind. His teacher is using Screen Castify to record slides for presentation. She is using the pointer enhancements and trying to make the recordings visually accessible for my student, however, when he is accessing the videos he is unable to see the pointer. The teacher has tried troubleshooting and provided this information: The problem is that these features are not available within the "Present" mode in Google Slides. They are only available when the slides are not in the present mode but then slides are too small to view for any student. Is there any way that we can access the enhancement features for the mouse/pointer while in "Present" mode? Thank you in advance.

- (2020-05-07, v:1.39.46-e04c9331) miranda ʕ •ᴥ•ʔ: To put it, this just isn't working.
This is my first time using this extension for my project and I just don't understand. I read the instructions and functions over and over again to see if I'm doing anything wrong, but it just doesn't seem that way. When I press record, its shows me how I want to share my screen then it goes away. So one, I can't see myself and two, I pretty sure it's not even recording since the light for my webcam turns off afterwards. Then I resort to using the other function for recording, Alt + Shift + R. The same thing happens all over again. I also check to see if this is just how it works and I actually recorded a video, but no. There was nothing. Whats happening? How am I supposed to use this extension for recording and it won't record?
- (2020-05-06, v:1.39.46-e04c9331) REOFFERATLANTA REOFFERATL: every time i try to select the Icon to record its not working

Hi Team, I have reported this already and also through email but still there is no response. I have purchased your annual license and having problem. When i record with full HD, it records to 1532 resolution and not full hd. Your urgent help will be much appreciated. Awaiting your response. Thanks
- (2020-05-04, v:1.39.44-2a9b745f) Megan Gill: Terrible Customer Service!
I am a teacher trying to work through this pandemic. I have contacted you twice with no response. I am very angry and soon will be demanding a refund for my subscription since no one is willing to help me! At the moment, the sound is not working on my recordings. I bought the subscription maybe a month ago and it was working up until last week. This is the last time I attempt to work with you before I start demanding my money back. The pandemic is difficult enough, please do not make my job any more difficult than it needs to be. Subscription is associated with [email protected] (I could not post on that account.)

Do you need the unlimited, because when I click edit video it says firing up forever. It will keep loading and it just is plain annoying.
