Screen recording – screencast – part III

In my previous posts I have described my favorite solutions for screen recording(Screen recording – screencast – part I and Screen recording – screencast – part II). Applications are free, just have to create an account. They have some limitations, but for the basic screen recording and image editing, they will work perfectly.
This time I will describe some paid/professional and easy-to-use programs. When we are talking about professional image/video editing, we have to say that there are many applications for this purpose. Most of them are very expensive, but they give lot of tools for image/video editing.

Every tester will agree, that every well written issue should contain screenshots. Screenshots will help to explain the issues.

Mobile testing – Screen recording on Android – non-rooted device

In my previous post Mobile testing – Screen recording on Android – rooted device I was talking about screen recording on rooted Android devices. The easy way to get a screencast app is by installing the app directly on the device(requires rooted device and in 99% with rooting users will void the warranty).
Here, we’ll describe how a user can record the screen onto a non-rooted device(this way is a little bit more complicated than the previous one.)

Mobile testing – Screen recording on Android – rooted device

Along with the spreading of the Android smart phones, more and more Android applications have been published. These apps should be thoroughly tested before they appear for download in the Play Store.

When testing a mobile application, you will need to take screenshots and record a video to document the error that happened.

There are apps that can make screenshots simple and now if you have Android with Ice Cream Sandwich or above installed, screenshot option is built-in. That’s fine, but what about recording video on Android?
