Share with Jing
Jing is a free screen recording app with which you capture your photos or record a video of your screen easily. Share it through a link, export to social media, or download it on your PC.
Record your desktop
Jing is a very easy to use app with a nice little interface, which provides enough features for most users to create their own desktop recordings.
This app enables you to do things on your computer and capture what you are doing so that it can be replayed. Specifically, if you work with a software that requires a lot of training, you could record the process and then provide the file to someone that needs that training. Or, capture a particular problem and share it with Tech Support through a video file.
The first thing you’ll notice after installation, is a little circle at the top of your screen. From here you can start a new capture, view the history of your captures, and more settings.
You start a new capture by pressing the button, specify the region on the screen that you want to record. Other apps allow you to start recording the whole screen immediately, but with Jing, record exactly what you want.
With the free version you can record a maximum length of five minutes, but with the premium plan you have unlimited recordings.
You can also share your screen with your friends, export to YouTube, or store it so you can watch it later.
Where can you run this program?
You can run Jing on any system, such as Windows 7 and up, MacOS, Linux, and more.
Is there a better alternative?
Yes, Screen-Cast-Omatic is a great alternative to Jing. With this program you can record your screen and have your webcam on a corner. With Jing, however, this feature is not possible, although the free service it offers is outstanding.
Jing is an excellent screen recording app. Its bubbly interface makes it very user-friendly. Anyone can start their recording in just one click.
Should you download it?
Yes. Whether you’re trying to show a friend how to do something, trying to capture an image, or just record a complicated process for a later watch, this app is great for you.
