GoReact Recorder is a companion mobile app to the GoReact web application (http://goreact.com) used in educational and professional settings around the world for video feedback, grading, and critique of speeches, presentations, lessons and performances.
The GoReact Recorder app lets you use your phone or tablet to submit videos directly to your activities in GoReact. You can record a new video or upload any video from your Camera Roll using GoReact Recorder. Once you post your video submission, it appears in the GoReact dashboard on the web and is available for feedback.
Videos created within GoReact Recorder can be trimmed before posting, so you only submit what you want to receive feedback on. Recordings are automatically compressed for upload on your device, making upload times and bandwidth requirements as light as possible. (GoReact Recorder can function over cellular networks, but you have the option to restrict it to Wi-Fi only. We don’t like paying huge data bills either!) Uploads that experience problems will be safely paused and stored on your device until you’ve got a better Internet connection.
The latest release of GoReact Recorder allows your iOS device to serve as the camera for recording live sessions! When you begin recording on a Live/In-Class activity in Recorder, instructors and audience members can submit feedback from anywhere as long as they are logged in to GoReact.com. Their comments will be synced and time-coded with your video as soon as it’s submitted.
Tons of bug fixes and improvements! Also, a new option to remove recordings from the device once they've been safely uploaded.
Ratings and Reviews
Would be great if I could even access my account
Look, you tried, I get it it. I downloaded it in hopes that I don't have to use the computer. More convenient. But of course, convenience is never a luxury. Or maybe it's just the stupidity of the app developers. I think it's the latter. I type in information and it says it's wrong, I do it about 4 more times, actually making sure I'm typing slow so I know I'm typing it right. Wrong every time. I go on the computer I type in the exact same thing I typed in here and it worked first try. Fix this, idiots.
Developer Response ,
Peace gurl, so sorry the login didn't work for you! We're actually aware of a login glitch around the time you posted, which was quickly corrected. Our bad on that. Please let us know if you're still unable to log in.
Caveat: this app is not a standalone full version of the GoReact software. It's a supplementary recorder for using your phone to make recordings and then submit them on GoReact assignments. So you need a regular GoReact account first. It looks like some of the negative reviewers may have misunderstood that or had problems related to their account and not the functionality of the app.
I've used it for both recording directly in the app and recording on my iPhone and submitting those recordings (from my library) through the app and it has worked perfectly.
One star for the app
Takes extremely long to load even a short video. If, for example, your assignment is due at midnight be sure to upload your video at least half a day in advance! The Houston we have a problem message is so irritating. That only adds to the frustration. Trying to get videos to upload takes much longer (hours) than the actual assignment.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
