There are many apps for recording your screen on Android, but in this topic I will be using  A-Z Screen Recorder. This app does not require root,it has no limit on recording length, doesn’t add watermarks, and it’s ad-free. Not a bad deal. Once you’ve downloaded it,

Features of AZ Screen Recorder:

  • Overlay Front Camera: you can record your face and your emotions in a small overlay window, which can be dragged freely to any position on the screen and customized to any size and opacity.
  • Magic Button: a button that controls your recording without showing anything on the screen. Thus, your video viewers will solely focus on the app, the game or whatever you want to screencast.
  • Countdown Timer: is there something you have to prepare before recording ? Don't worry, the countdown timer will wait until you are ready to start and snap at the moment you want.
  • Draw on Screen: this unique feature is huge when making a tutorial. You can emphasize, draw a symbol or mark something with any chosen colour directly on your screen.
  • Trim Videos: the screencast can be long and contains unnecessary information, you can trim the parts you don't want to make your videos even more impressive.
