Free Android screen-recording app with editing capabilities
Mobizen is a particularly helpful app that allows users to connect their Android devices to their desktop and laptop computers. The benefit of this is that users can view anything and everything happening on their mobile device through the larger monitors of their computers.
While connecting mobile devices to personal computers is the feature for which Mobizen is most well-known, the app actually offers other options as well. With this app, users can record the activity on the device or take screenshots of particular sections of the activity. These recordings and images are then stored on the Android phone or tablet for future review. The app gives users various options related to these functions, including choosing a video resolution and frame rates.
As an added benefit, Mobizen gives users the ability to manage the files on their mobile devices through their personal computers. This can be a great help since the computer monitor is much larger than the screen of the device. Being able to better view images, videos, and other files helps users better decide which files they want to keep and how they should be organized to best optimize storage space.
It should be noted that the Mobizen app can tend to run slow on less powerful apps, so users should consider the ability of their phones and tablets to support the full function of the app. Overall, however, Mobizen, is a good choice for those who wish to view, record, and screenshot mobile device activity through their personal computers and better manage the files on their devices.
