Screencast captures screenshots and videos of what's displayed in your device screen
This app runs only on rooted devices. It doesn't work on Galaxy Nexus or Tegra 2/3 yet, even if rooted.
Have you ever wanted to capture a video featuring your personal bests on your favorite Android game? Or a screenshot of your homescreen... or maybe to record a tutorial to show how to make some Android OS tricks. Whatever the purpose, the need is shared: capturing screenshots and videos of what's displayed in your device.
That's what Screencast allows users to do. Using it is as easy as tap on the central home button to start recording. However, there are some parameters you can adjust from settings. Thus, you can set video resolution, video orientation, frames per second (up to 40), timelapse multiplier, record audio (from mic), screenshot format, and many more.
In order to make the most of your device's hardware, you can make a benchmark that will show, for example, maximum frames per second supported. Videos and screenshot taken will be saved on a built-in gallery.
** Does not work on Galaxy Nexus or Tegra 2/3
** Samsung S3: Set recording mode to "High" in settings
** ICS+ devices: Make sure HW Overlay is disabled and "Force GPU Rendering" is enabled from the device's developer options menu
Screencast captures your phone screen at high frame rates into a high quality MPEG4 video with audio. It can also take snapshots of your screen by holding the search key on your phone.
This program includes a gallery to view, play, rename, delete and share your previously recorded videos or screen shots from within the same user interface.
Please contact the developer if you have question or issues, before rating the app low. The developer cannot help you if you only post a review and do not email for support.
You can also hit "Menu" and select "Report a problem" to get support.
**This app complies with the LGPL as it uses libavcodec by FFMPEG for the encoding process. The sources used are from ffmpeg-0.8 release, and compiled without modification.

Worked perfectly on my Galaxy Note 2 until I got the 4.3 update. Now it simply crashes upon launch every time. I've sent the reports to the developer several times and have not received any response
First app that really goes on my Highscreen Boost. But in output video content is moving by blocks, not entire screen picture, even in normal resolution. Bad.
If I meet the makers of this program I would pound them into the ground. It's go on about root then send u a website then try too set u up with joining up with a plan that cost $5 and another $5 a week so $20.00 a month IT A RIPE OFF
I all was wanted some thing to record my games
Keep getting an error and no response when I report it. Was working good but can't rate it higher knowing it's not functional right now
I used this app with one phone and worked well, then I changed for another phone (LG g2) and don't work, it take the shot and record the video but can't see anything only hear the sound and the screen is black. I sended like 3 mails to the owner asking fo
