The best screen recorders for Android


Whether you are running a YouTube channel or just want to share a screen recording with your friends, here are the best screen recorders for your Android device.


AZ Screen Recorder

Let’s start off with the most popular and feature-packed offering. AZ Screen Recorder is a totally free tool which boasts a truly massive feature set including different floating icons to control your recording, gestures for ending the recording, support for a front camera overlay, live audio recording from the microphone, a doodle feature and even a built-in editor the functionality of which can be expanded by installing the free plugin. Recording works seamlessly and this app is definitely worth trying.



If you don’t really need all the advanced features and just want the basics, look no further. Rec is a super-simple yet efficient screen recorder which I personally like for the smooth and high quality recordings it produces. There are some basic settings for the video and also a few available presets but the experience is mainly just about capturing the video. For the simple stuff, this is the right app.


ADV Screen Recorder

Another offering which shouldn’t be missed is ADV. It offers high quality recordings and very easy controls as well as some more advanced features like a simple video editor, two recording engines, support for pausing the recording, and a built-in tool to add your own watermark. ADV also allows users to draw on the screen or add a camera window. It is a great combination of simplicity and functionality.
