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.

* 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.

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

This app is EPIC. Its audio quality is great and the gameplay looks smooth, but there is a problem. So, I have a chromebook, which is the problem. Chromebooks have a wide screen, and this app did not specify that it is for mobile. It records on any ratio you choose, but no one knows how to do that. So until you can KNOW how the ratio will look, this is staying 4 star. At least until I figure out the ratio size.

This is the only screen recorder that works on my device. Thank you for that. Though, there's a problem. After one or two video it repeatedly says the service is killed and needs to be restarted. So I restart it every time. It doesn't change. I can't even change the five minutes to anything else or it'll do that repeatedly. Please fix this. If you do, I'll come back and change this rating.

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!
