Apowersoft Screen Recorder is a program that allows users to capture what's happening on their computer screens and to export those captures to video files. Audio recording along with the video capture is also supported. This software is a great solution for those who want to take screen shots, videos of their screens, screencasts and more.

When it comes to recording what you see on your screen, there are many options available. You can record the entirety of what's happening on your screen, limit your capture to a specified area or window, record a webcam stream, or even stay focused on the mouse. When recording audio along with the video, users have the ability to record sounds that are coming through the sound card, microphone input or a combination of both. The video is exported to WMV format, and the audio can be a choice between WAV, MP3, OGG or WMA.

Task scheduling is a feature of Apowersoft Screen Recorder that many will enjoy. With the scheduler, you can specify when you'd like the recording to start, how long you'd like it to continue recording, and even a stopping time. You can also specify whether you'd like the computer to shut down or not when the scheduled recording ends.

Most will find this application extremely easy to use and thorough with features. Each button expands to a menu that can be browsed to find the feature you're looking for. Some users might find the "false buttons" annoying. These buttons appear to be actual features within the program, but when clicked, the user is taken to the developer's website to purchase those features.

When recording by region, you can use a rectangle to specify particular areas of the screen that you want to record. Preset sizes are available, or you can specify exactly the shape you want and where it lies on the screen. Apowersoft Screen Recorder also allows users to set up countdowns that provide some lag time before the actual recording begins. The audio recording stops and starts with a beep to indicate when it is actually recording.

Apowersoft Screen Recorder is very non-invasive. The interface is extremely minimal and it is shaped quite small so that it does not intrude when recordings are taking place. The toolbars within the interface can be hidden, making it appear even more subtle for when you decide to record.

Video quality does not suffer from Apowersoft Screen Recorder being open, because it is quite light on system resources. The file compression is surprising for how high the quality usually is in the exported videos. Some users may experience problems when using the screen capture mode that follows the mouse. However, these problems generally appear only with resolutions at or under 640x480.

If you're looking for a way to capture and record your screen/audio, look no further than Apowersoft Screen Recorder.
