10 Best Screen Recorder Apps for Android

Sometimes you just need to show everything that happens on the screen – when you prepare a presentation or when dealing with technical support service and so on. As the popular saying goes, better to see once than hear a hundred times, and this is probably true in this case.

Have you ever tried to explain to someone how to perform certain actions on the phone, without the use of video (or pictures)? If you just explain to the “fingers” of what and where to click – you will be understood by 1 out of 100 people! Agree?

It is quite another thing when you can record video on what’s happening on your screen and show it to others – and so it is possible to explain what and how to press, as well as to show your skills in this or that sphere.

That’ why we have prepared for you a top list of free Screen Recorder Apps for Android devices. Here they are:

Most users would probably agree that one of the most annoying features of all free apps is tons of ads. Luckily, the developers of this one expressed understanding for all the people and made this screen recording absolutely ad-free – we must thank them for that.

Overall, this is a very basic screen recorder but not in a negative sense – it is a very simple and lightweight app, which, on the other hand, includes everything you need to have in a good screen recorder. When you want to record your screen, you just tap on the icon in the app and then you see a bar on your home screen.

You open any program, any video, or other media that you want to record, tap on the recording button on the bar and the recording starts. Remember that the sound will be recorded only via the microphone – Android doesn’t support the recording of the sound from the 3rd party apps.

Apowersoft Screen Recorder

If in the screen recorder for your Android device you are looking for, first of all, beautiful interface design then this is a perfect app for you. In other aspects, it is a regular screen recording app that has some extra features, even though it can’t compete with the most powerful ones.

You can record the screen with the sound, but all the sound will be captured from the microphone. In order to start recording, you need to overlay the icon of the app on the screen and tap on the rec sigh when you will be ready to start. After your video is made you can trim it.



ADV Screen Recorder

A really popular app on Google Play. The design of the interface here also looks like a standard Android app. The feature that many users will find attractive is that it requires no root for the recording. Besides, ADV can make recordings with 2 engines (Default and Advanced).

During the recording, you can use the front or back camera. When you’re done, you can trim the video right in the app. You can also add some text. Moreover, for example, if you are recording but you need to make a pause you can do that on the video as well and continue whenever you want.



Super Screen Recorder

One more really convenient screen recorder without any time limitation and watermarks. This is the app for those who would prefer to have some additional features in their screen recording app but not too many at the same time. Here you will find the function of the screen zooming and video editor.

All the videos will be recorded in high-quality resolution. One interesting feature of Super Screen Recorder that is worth mentioning is its ability to turn videos into gifs. By the way, you can make your own personalized watermarks and put it on your videos.



Mobizen Screen Recorder

This is one of the most popular screen recorders for Android and it is even marked as “Editor’s choice”.  Mobizen Screen Recorder is especially appreciated among gamers because it is especially good for screen recordings for video games. It records everything in the highest quality possible – 1080 Resolution, 12.0Mbps Quality, 60 FPS.

No watermarks will be left of the video as in the case with some paid screen recorders. Anyone can use it with No rooting starting from OS 4.4. All the material that you’re recording will be saved to your memory card, so you don’t have to worry you will run out of the memory space.




The main feature of this app is that it’s the most standard Android app. If you’re looking for something with the UI that provides no-hassle usage, then this is a good choice. All the videos will be recorded in HD quality (up to 60 fps, up to 1080p, 32 Mbits/s bitrate).

RecMe also claims that it can record the audio from the internal audio source or mix it together with a microphone recording. Moreover, when you save your video files you can even choose in which format you want to save it. No watermarks will be put on your video.



ScreenCam Screen Recorder

For those who are seeking a more multi-functional screen recorder app, this is a pretty good choice. Also, the best feature of it is the fact that among all the screen recording apps for Android, this is the only one that can record the sound internally (which makes a huge difference, by the way).

It should be compatible with all the Android versions. Moreover, ScreenCam Screen Recorder has no ads and it is lightweight at the same time.



MNML Screen Recorder

Another cool screen recorder for Android that has no ads. It is probably the most simple app on this list – simply a screen recorder and nothing else. Moreover, the interface design is very minimalistic. The app would be perfect for those who like to work fast and do everything fast without distraction to non-important things.

The quality is very decent and the overall process is known to be without lags. MNML is the app that won’t be suitable for those who like additional functions and a wider range of actions.
