Overall Satisfaction with screenflow

Screenflow is a great tool for demonstrating software and for recording webinar-like presentations that easily be emailed to clients or posted to YouTube. It is a very intuitive and versatile video editor. It includes the capability to simultaneously record multiple sources - onscreen activity on your computer, smartphone and/or tablets, and a webcam. This all works together seamlessly, so viewers can see me talking as I demonstrate software or show my presentation slides.
  • Ease of use - the interface is very intuitive
  • Versatility - the ability to simultaneously record from multiple sources
  • Easy to export - the finished product can be saved as a file, emailed, or posted to online platforms like YouTube
  • It works only on the Mac OS platform, not on PC
  • There is no iOS version; it must be used on a Mac OS laptop or desktop
  • This allows me to make a presentation once and then distribute it widely. This increases efficiency and effectiveness.
  • It allows me to demonstrate apps and concepts, not just talk about them. This allows clients to grasp concepts much more readily.
While Final Cut Pro X is definitely more full-featured, the learning curve is also considerably steeper. Also, as far as I can tell, Final Cut does not have the built-in capability to record my computer screen. If you are a hardcore video editor, Final Cut is the way to go. If, however, you are looking to produce professional-quality screencasts for educational purposes, Screenflow is the better choice.
This is an exceptional product for anyone looking to make, edit and distribute videos demonstrating software or making webinar-like videos for presenting your ideas. If you work on a Mac, this is a great, easy to learn app. Unfortunately, it is currently not available for PC or for tablets like the iPad.
