ScreenFlow is video editing, screen recording, and video sharing software for the Mac only.


Who ScreenFlow is For:

ScreenFlow is for business owners who need to edit video on a Mac. If you’re providing online training, free video content, or marketing materials to help sell your products, then you may want to look into this software.

Skill Level:

ScreenFlow allows any Mac user to easily edit videos, record their screen, and share videos. Its user interface is very intuitive even for a novice.


ScreenFlow is software you install on your computer (Mac users only).

Special Features:

ScreenFlow has a built in media library to help you add media clips to your projects. The software allows you to add in transitions, video animations, text animations, and more. You can also add in closed caption subtitles to your videos. In addition, you can record quick narrations without leaving the software or even the timeline which is very handy.


The biggest disadvantage is that you can only use ScreenFlow on a Mac and not a PC. Other than that there aren’t many issues. It’s easy to use, comes packed with features, and has a fairly low price.
