Android: Screen capture with AZ Screen Recorder

To use this method you need at least Android 5.0. Root rights are not required.
  • Download the AZ Screen Recorder from the Google Play Store.
  • When you start the app, you will notice a red button with the app logo. After tapping on it, you can start the screen recording (camera icon), open the settings (gear) and open the gallery of the recorded files (folder).
  • In the settings you can change various options such as resolution and frame rate. If you just want it to be quick, use the default settings as well.
  • If you have started a recording using the camera symbol, you will be shown small tutorials when you first start it. After a short countdown, the recording starts.
  • The AZ Screen Recorder records the screen content 1: 1. This not only works with the homescreen, but also with all applications.
  • You can end the recording by pulling down the notification drawer and pressing the AZ Screen Recorder icon with the word "Recording control".
  • Alternatives to the AZ screen recorder include Telecine and ilos .
  • We'll show you how to share your recordings on Facebook in the last section.
