Great little program. For the base price, it does exactly what I need it to do (replacing Snapz Pro, which is dead).

iShowU Instant at first appears like a very nice piece of software, with a lot of capabilities and a slick user interface. But then you discover that ALL the interesting features require you to pay extra money to gain access to. And then you discover a really annoying bug, causing you to constantly loose audio on your computer (because the iShowU Audio Capture plugin is taking over your audio output). So between making my computer's audio practically unusable for a long time--until I figured out the cause, at which point I just had to constantly waste time going into my system preferences to correct it--and not really offering me any remarkable features, I'm going to stick with my old video capture system. It was good enough, and it's not crippled. If you don't mind paying for the software twice, and you don't mind it royally messing up your system, then you should take a look at it. Apart from those problems it appears to be magnificent, but those problems are deal-killers for me. I'm uninstalling it.

iShowU Instant is a remarkably capable application that gets you from on-screen action on your Mac or iOS device to full-fledged screen recording production in just a few quick steps. With a handful of unexpectedly useful features, iShowU Instant delivers an experience that far surpasses what you might expect from an app in its price range. Particularly useful is iShowU Instant's audio processing capabilities, which allow you to boost or fill out recorded audio whether it's coming from your Mac or from your microphone. You wouldn't think to focus on audio when producing a screen recording, but you end up with a strikingly professional polished product. Area selection is deceptively feature-packed as well, letting you select entire application windows and accommodating pixel perfect nudges when hand selecting a portion of your screen. And once the recording is complete, iShowU Instant's built-in editing features are as intuitive as iMovie with simple, straightforward options to round out your project with precision. Basic and Advanced recording modes give you varying degrees of control over your final product, including how your screen is captured and how the recording is shared. The app's trial mode leaves nothing to the imagination, so go ahead and give it a shot!
