About this app

Rec. is a beautiful screen recording app, providing untethered, flexible and fully configurable screen recording capabilities for your Android device; neatly packaged into an intuitive user interface.

Rec. (Pro) highlights include:
▪ No need to be tied to your computer while recording.
▪ Longer screen recording, with Audio – record for up to 1 hour.
▪ Audio recording via the mic.
▪ A beautiful user interface – no more messing with the command line/terminal.
▪ Save your favourite configurations as Presets.
▪ Automatically show screen touches for the duration of your recording.
▪ Customisable countdown timer so that you can get your screen recording set-up perfectly.
▪ Shake your device, or simply switch your screen off, to stop your recording early.

*** ROOT REQUIRED (for Android 4.4 only) ***
If your device is running Android 4.4, Rec. requires your device to be rooted in order to do its magic.
Rec. will work seamlessly, without root, on Android 5.0+ however.
Please read the FAQs below for more important information.

FAQs:
* Why can't I install Rec. on my device?
Your phone/tablet must be running Android 4.4 or above.
* Why do I need root?
If you are on Android 5.0, or above, then you no longer need root and can ignore this question (and the next one)!
However, if you are running Android 4.4, then your device must be rooted in order for Rec. to function correctly/at all.
* How do I root my device?
Unfortunately the process differs for every Android device, and so there is no universal rooting solution - however CF-Auto-Root is a good place to start. Otherwise, please search for a root guide for your particular device using Google.
* Can Rec. record audio?
Yes! Audio is recorded via the mic.
* Why is the recording laggy and slow on my Samsung Galaxy S2/S3/Note/...?
This seems to be an issue with Exynos-based devices not playing nicely with the native screenrecord function, so there's not a lot I can do about it right now (I also don't have access to any Samsung devices). Sorry!
* Does Rec. work with Intel x86 based devices?
It should work fine for devices running Android 5.0+, but probably not for devices running Android 4.4. Unfortunately, I don't have access to any x86 devices to test on, but if you do try it, please let me know how you get on.
* Are there any other known issues?
Enabling the Audio option may cause the recording to fail on the LG G2 (on Android 4.4 only). I will attempt to resolve this as soon as I have access to an LG G2 device to test with.
* Can you add translations for my language?

Top Tips:
1. Disable notifications in your Superuser app to prevent the notifications from appearing in the beginning of your recordings.
2. Switch the Size width/height values to flip the recording orientation.
3. Tap the Size label to get your device's native resolution.


Disclaimer:
Unfortunately, I do not have the time or resources to test the app on every device/ROM combinations, so your mileage may vary.

I absolutely love it. Nearly every aspect you can think of is customizable, even without Pro there is still a lot you can do. But there are some suggestions I'd like to see happen, like being able to change the bitrate to a fraction, with 0.1Mbps being the lowest. It's not of necessity to record with such a low bitrate, but if you're recording a live tournament as a player, it would be an amazing option. Or, on another instance, even multiple framerates/codecs. Cheers for the work done, SPECTRL!

Rec is a well made app for recording your phone screen. The free version has everything that a casual or occasional user could want from a screen recorder. I rarely used this app, but tested its features and performance, which were quite satisfactory. It hasn't been updated for over 2 years though, so you might face issues with the latest phones. Definitely worth checking out though.

This app is amazing and it can record audio from whatever game you are playing and your own voice at the same time! Also, it is optional if you want audio or not. The only improvement they need to make is that they need an option if they just want game audio and none of your own sound. Overall, I definitely recommend this app if you want to grow your YouTube channel.
