I've been using ScreenFlow for about four years now and I couldn't live without it.

But I'm surprised at the comment that there's no way to add text to the screencasts. There's a whole section for doing that.

  • Speed of how movies are saved before exporting
  • Very simple, yet sophisticated tools
  • No way to batch process a bunch of screen flow files
  • Easier way to crop screen
