A Better Way to Show Off iOS Apps

With TechSmith AppShow, our newest Labs experiment, we’re exploring a different approach to content creation for people new to video editing. Instead of starting with a blank timeline, you begin with a storyboard. And instead of recording excess footage then editing it down to much shorter clips, you record just what you need. That way, your video takes shape as you record each scene, not after hours of editing.

What it Does

There's no need to be a video pro. Our stand-alone Mac software gives you all the tools you need to record iOS devices and make clear, compelling videos.

How It's Used

Create app previews, training videos about iOS apps, or just show a friend how to set up wifi on their iPhone.

Why You Need It

Making videos should be easy.

TechSmith AppShow breaks a complex process into bite-size pieces. Choose a template, record into each segment, and you’ve got an amazing video.

We’ll help your video look fabulous with things like music, transitions, and more.

Need to build this into a more robust video? Move your project straight into our timeline editor, Camtasia for Mac, and go nuts with camera video, green screen effects, and animations.
