Are you familiar with Apowersoft? Apowersoft is a free software that allows you to record your computer screen. In this article, we will explain in detail the basic information and actual usage of Apowersoft. We will also introduce other useful applications released by the developer.
The online tool version requires the installation of a startup tool for the first time, but does not occupy any more space on your computer after that. The startup tool as well as the use itself is free of charge, so as long as you have an Internet connection, you can easily record your screen. In addition, the software has a real-time editing function that allows you to edit the video while recording. Recorded videos can be saved not only on the computer but also in the cloud.
The app has a similar content called ApowerREC. It can record the phone screen and does not include advertisements or watermarks. Operation is also very easy, as you just press the red circle button on the screen to start recording.
There is also PC software that is almost identical to the online tool version. The paid version is free for 3 days, but after that, the free version has some limitations, such as a logo on the screen and a recording time limit of 3 minutes. The paid version offers a wider range of features and support, so please choose the one that best suits your needs.
ApowerMirror is an application for mirroring and recording iOS and Android screens, and unlike Apowersoft, it can be considered a tool for connecting smartphones to computers. Basically, it is available for free, but the paid version removes restrictions and adds useful features.
There have been no reports of viruses or other problems with Apowersoft. There is no problem with the installed version as long as you go through the official site. On the other hand, the installed version is said to sometimes freeze, but please be assured that this is basically due to the large capacity of the software. However, just to be safe, you should install security software on your PC.
