Important Notice and New Release

Hello everyone,

Hope you all are doing well and staying safe during these challenging times. It has been nearly 3 months since we posted the response to the COVID-19.

From April 3rd to July 10th

We have been providing unlimited access to and unlimited storage of screen recordings to all users for free since April to help remote working and teaching. The original plan was to reinstate feature limits on July 1st. Though the economy is reopened gradually in most of the world, some sectors are still hard hit. We decided to extend the offer for another 10 days. Limits will be reinstated after July 10th. 

After July 10th

If you’re on the free plan and have saved more than 20 videos, your access to more- previously saved videos will be limited after July 10th. Please upgrade to the professional plan to gain unlimited access if you’d like to continue enjoying the service, or download your videos before they are locked if you prefer not to upgrade now. 

New Features in 4.3.6 

We have spent a lot of effort in the development of new features in the past few months. Today, we’re releasing a new version 4.3.6. What’s coming with this update? First of all, we’d like to introduce the carefully redesigned popup menu, a more user-friendly and easy-to-navigate interface, allowing you to quickly switch between screen recording and screen capture when needed.

You can set either Record or Capture as the default menu based on your primary usage scenario by clicking the Options button then changing the related setting.

Next are the major changes made on the screenshot functionality. Now you can:

  • Capture a local HTML page 
  • Capture entire screen or app window after delay 
  • Directly copy a screenshot when capturing a selected area
  • Skip annotating for quick saving 
  • Select an area or annotate a screenshot with pen on touch screen 
  • Add timestamp and page URL to a screenshot 

Wondering how to enable some of these functions? Simply click on the Options button in the lower right corner of the popup menu! You will find various settings there. Check them out and customize the extension to your own preference 😀

We have also made some improvements on the recording feature and will keep working on more. Stay tuned!

Feel free to send us a message by clicking the Feedback button in the lower left corner of the popup menu if you have any questions, suggestions or any other issues.

  1. Just a quick comment on the settings: There’s a typo in ‘Entire Screen & App Window after Delay’, ‘Nerver’ should probably be ‘Never’.

  2. Hi Team Awesome,
    Thank you for the wonderful job in updating my old Awesome App to new one.
    I only heard it today that I can do all this newly added feature- Date June 24h 2020.

    1. How long can the video length (in minutes) is maximum permissible?
    2. Can one directly add this to Youtube and other social media sites including correctly formatted and complaint to all social media platforms?
    3. What are the limitations in 1 and 2 above?

    Look forward to your feedback,
    Best Success,

    P.S. Do you have the social share button on your blogs?
    I only saw it for Facebook and Twitter??

  3. Hello! I’m confused on how to take screenshots of full page websites now. The “full page” option only screenshots the portion of the site that’s visible… can you please explain? Thanks!

    (Also, there’s a typo in “My Local Recordings” — says “Lcoal” instead)

  5. The update arrived right in the middle of annotating a screenshot. Lost the screenshot. It wasn’t complicated but, yeesh, what timing. Also, now the ctrl+shift+E is not working and I’ll have relaunch my browser to get the control back and as I said, I was in the middle of using your app.

  6. Select image screenshot needs a togglable feature so we can disable the annoying auto-scroll which kicks in uninvited willy-nilly whenever one deigns and dares to approach an image end one is TRYING to take to the offending trigger of this state of unacceptability at either the top or bottom of the now offending page, which for me anyways is a useless feature. The rest of the app is usually nice though, I suppose… 😋

  8. For a very long time, the only thing that prevents me from buying the pro version is the very big capture flaw on the Desktop. It’s the only capture application that puts a bar at the bottom that indicates that there is a screen share in my image. It’s unusable. Even me, in C++, I wrote a program that allows me to capture the whole screen without any message, just by following some tutorials on the internet, it’s really easy. So as soon as you fix this huge flaw, I’ll buy the paid version. And if it takes too long, I’ll look for another application somewhere else. Too bad, because I’ve been using this great tool for years and waiting for this fix.

  9. Any progress on weird screen cap on Twitter? A lot of times I select an area and copy, but then it does something weird and copies not just the selected area (say, a tweet or a thread) but superimposes the Twitter icons from the left over the top, making it unusable. Can’t tell what’s causing it, sometimes it happens and sometimes it seems ok.

  10. Or as just happened, when I click capture, it suddenly shifts to the right and the capture ends up being just the right half of the tweet, plus the right-hand column on Twitter.

  13. Great job.
    Please add an option to select video quality like in YouTube, so that one can choose to watch at 240p, 360p, 480p or 720p. At times due to limited internet data plan or disturbed network conditions, one may need to switch the quality.
