I have used ScreenFlow for 3 years. Never in the first 2 years did I experience any problems. I then switched from the apple app to buy directly from Telestream. I have had so many problems and never found anyone to help. I have missed several deadlines in the last week and today began looking for the new software to replace Screenflow. It took forever to get the stock media working and now when I upload video it plays and then just goes blank. I restart over and over again and write you emails and have made some calls, but no response. Their back load of problems must be huge, because they keep telling me, I am in line. but that does not help when I have deadlines. Can no long recommend this product. It is great to work with, but the people who should support do not seem to work.

Not user friendly. It does not store the screen recording as is. It must be saved as a project or exported and converted. Nor does it drag drop video files into timeline and has no way of linking multiple screen recordings onto one project via drag drop. Creating different tracks in the timeline is nightmare as it keeps adding tracks that are completely useless. None the less I bought filmora x after I purchases this crappy as hell product. Movie Edit Pro is easier to use and has more editing capability and only cost $50. But its not a screen recorder. Buyer beware, even it was a windows compatable, it does not have the categorizing and organizing features as a windows program often does.

MacUpdate seems to be behind on the version showing as the latest available. According to the telestream support site 9.0.6 is the latest version which is also the version to use on Big Sur and M1 Macs. What's strange is, the automatic update in screenflow itself didn't alert me to this version either. The only thought I had was maybe it's a beta, but it's not listed on the site as such. After installing the update things seem to work as expected on Big Sur. I am running an Intel based iMac, so can't comment on M1 Macs.

Not sure why the poor reviews. Some call the software "pricey." I have been using ScreenFlow for several years, and have gladly paid the price. Developers have to eat too.

It is irritating that it does not pre-empt you that it requires additional permissions on MacOs catalina to record and that it cannot be connected to Bluetooth audio as output device. It would have been polite to put a notice at the software startup perhaps. Wasted 2hrs of recording attempt for a livestream - no audio and no screen capture because it only prompted for permission after the recording ended. And to think i actually paid for the upgrade.

I use Screenflow for assembling and cutting up videos from many sources, and capturing screens. It does a fine job with those tasks. It is half the price of its overpriced competitor and has most functions. I find especially cool is that one can rotate a video or still in three dimensions.

Screen Flow 9 doesn't work with MAC Mojave. I have enabled the screen capture permission in Security and Privacy on MAC, but still, Screen Flow tells me to do it.

It is true that ScreenFlow is amazing however it is only available for Mac computers. As I found out, it seems the developers are not yet considering creating a Windows version. So, if you are an avid Windows user, I can recommend Acethinker Screen Grabber Pro. As I experience, it can record and add annotations at the same time.

This app does not work. I have been unsuccessful in recording like presented in Telestream LLC's online Tutorial. When I tried to call the company, they refused to help me. Unfortunately, if you buy this product via iTunes, it doesn't give you a licence number. Without a license number, you are out of luck getting any assistance. I tried to get a refund... Apple refused. So now I'm out $134 (taxes included) with NO capability.

Used to be ok but every update now has showstopper bugs, is slower and slower, and is basically unusable now. Switch to Davinci Resolve instead - it's free with tons of features.

I wanted to leave a note here about an issue I have with screenFlow 8.2.2 on a 27" 5K iMac running 10.143. When enabled to start at login, the Screenflow helper prevents sleep due to coreaudioD. If I uncheck the option to start the helper on login and quit the app, and helper the issue goes away. Is this intentional to prevent sleep? I was able to get the info about this issue by issuing the following command in terminal: pmset -g The output is as follows: tron@iFrog5K ~> pmset -g System-wide power settings: Currently in use: Sleep On Power Button 1 autopoweroff 1 standbydelayhigh 86400 autopoweroffdelay 28800 proximitywake 1 standby 1 standbydelaylow 86400 ttyskeepawake 1 hibernatemode 25 powernap 1 gpuswitch 2 hibernatefile /var/vm/sleepimage highstandbythreshold 50 displaysleep 15 womp 1 networkoversleep 0 sleep 0 (sleep prevented by coreaudiod, coreaudiod) halfdim 1 autorestart 0 disksleep 0 tron@iFrog5K ~> As mentioned above, quitting the ScreenFlow Helper and app resolves this issue. However, I don't recall having this issue prior to version 8 of ScreenFlow, and 10.14 Mojave. If anyone has a fix that can be applied without having to quit the helper, please speak up.

Not a review but an important comment.
The upcomming new macOS 10.14 Mojave version has screenrecording build in as default. Just press Shift+Cmd+5
It captures in 60fps, has editing features and other nice things.
It does not have video-in-video possibilities, but many people do not need this.
This is one of the great new feature of macOS10.14 which I really like.
This makes a lot of screen recording tools obsolete.

Screenflow is a good tool to record your desktop. No doubt about that. Sadly, it is plagued with yearly very high upgrade fees. I have no problem supporting developers, but this company really is after your money on a very regular basis. 4 star for the app itself. 0 star for the very greedy developers.

In a foot race for the greediest developers on the Mac OS. I've been paying for and updating and dealing with buggy versions of Screenflow for many years now. Apparently just to get v5 to work now I have to put another $39. Telestream hide their older versions really well (good luck finding version 3 for example). The only version currently working on my Mac Pro running OS 10.11.6 for some reason is version 2 (I own up to version 5 and tried version 7 too). Does screen capture really have to be this expensive and complicated?

We've all been had by Telestream's marketing. I suggest you pick an alternative that won't want to empty your pockets every year as if on cue. OS X deserves better screen capture.

I use ScreenFlow almost every day, and overall it's good. But there are very long-standing bugs that have been around for years that have never been fixed and probably never will. The developer adds features to drive sales but puts little effort into fixing bugs. You can work around the bugs, and frankly, I've grown used to them, but they're still there. I work with video played back at different speeds. A whole nest of bugs appears once the playback speed of a video is changed: audio waveform synchronization is thrown off, audio distortion appears, volume levels change and more. ScreenFlow's Save dialogs must use a very old API because it allows the colon character - ":" - in file names but not the forward slash - "/". The Mac OS allows the opposite.
