ActivePresenter Comments

Works fine

Positive Comment by stefanoazzi
about ActivePresenter Jan 2015

It allows to modify the recorded video, add sountracks, banners and many other useful things. I find it complete and effective. Due to its completeness, I can't find a better program to compare with.


Misleading ....

Negative Comment by Eric_Sebasta
about ActivePresenter and Wink Jun 2013

The freeware version is limited to 30 second demos with a watermark... something they never bother to tell you on the website. Crashed once during testing... doesn't really work any better then Wink... which is free.
