The application can be used to record tutorials errors obnoxious activities etc. Also the application is capable of converting the files to Internet friendly format. This means that the recorded files are originally saved in .AVI format however if users want to share them online they can convert the format to .SWF. Users can also record their voices while demonstrating any tutorial hence eliminating requirement of any additional software to record the sounds. With the help of this application users can capture either full computer screen events or they can specify the area on the monitor which they want to capture while recording.
