I had no idea you all had an app to use on iPhone and iPads. I love your desktop version, so this makes me very happy. One question, the desktop version has a yellow cursor point to show where you are on the screen, does your app have that option? I didn’t see it, but maybe I wasn’t looking in the right place. If it doesn’t have one, do you think you will at some point? I love how easy it is to use. Thank you.

Thank you for your feedback and insights! We appreciate your positive review! As for the cursor, we don't currently have this feature on iPhone/iPad as it is a limitation of Apple's operating system. That said, we will continue to enhance our app as Apple allows for new features! Thank you for taking the time to reach out!

This recorder causes rage and depression

I cannot stress enough how AWFUL Screencast-O-Matic is. It has literally sent me into rage and depression because of how much time and work I’ve wasted trying to use it for school. It freezes constantly— just now I was recording an 8 minute video and had to shut down and force restart 3 separate times. On the off chance that the recorder doesn’t freeze, there is constant lag— each time I press record the video freezes for 5 seconds and then finally begins )meaning I have to edit out the 5 second of silence after each take). The support team is absolutely useless; they just tell you to uninstall and reinstall (even though that achieves nothing). I literally want to rage quit this app 100% of the time I use it. Hope I never have to see it again after this school year ends.

Videos not recording!!

I had been using screencast o matic all year. It was great, I used to record my lectures for my college classes. I’m teaching a summer class and began to record my lessons. I recorded 3 lessons with no problem about a couple of weeks ago. Then I updated my app. All of a sudden my videos stopped recording after just a couple of minutes and would not save or upload. I contacted SOM support. They asked me to check my storage on my iPad. I have more than 100 GB available and no other apps opened but my PowerPoint. Then I decided to use another iPad and the same thing happened. It’s not the iPad! So I have to record my videos on my computer now, the only issue is I can’t make any annotations on my computer.
