One of our more frequent requests from readers is to tell them how to record your screen on Android. The functionality has been around for quite some time but usually requires some tinkering and adjustment to get it. In Android Lollipop, they have a screen recording method building into the OS and that’s how most people do it these days. Let’s take a look at a few Android apps and some other methods to get you screen recording.
Screen Recorder No Root
Screen Recorder No Root is the coolest app to record the screen. And that too no root is required. This video screen recorder lets you record HD videos and you can stop these recordings by going anytime to the notification bar.
Floating window / Floating gadget always remain on top so that you can start the recording any time, and even stop too. Also you can press gallery button from the widget itself to see the recorded videos.
Do you want to know how you performed during a particular stage of a game? Then start recording the game using Screen Recorder No Root application.
AZ Screen Recorder
First up is AZ Screen Recorder and this is one of the many screen recording apps that were designed to work specifically on Lollipop. Some of the features include the Magic Button feature to control recordings without showing anything on the screen, the ability to capture your front camera as well as screen recording, and some cursory stuff like countdown timers and video trimming. It’s free to use with some in-app purchases if you’re interested.
Mobizen Screen Recorder
Mobizen is an option that lets you do all kinds of stuff including sending SMS from your desktop, transfer files to PC, and stream video directly to your computer screen. You can also record the screen and this is one of the very few ways you can record using an Android app before Lollipop without root. Unfortunately, the screen recording isn’t great and there will likely be jumps, skips, and frame rate drops. It’s not perfect but it is there and it’s free.

One Shot screen recorder
One Shot Screen Recorder tries to keep the process of screen recording simple. It puts the whole process into four easy steps for your convenience and that’s really all you need. The process aims to keep it easy to use over other options and it does fairly well at it. The free version is a trial that puts a watermark on your videos with the premium version removing the watermark, adds the ability to impose your own logo, hide the notification icon, remove ads, and more.
Telecine is the highest rated app on the list with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating on Google Play. It puts an overlay on your device so you know you’re recording and boasts that it doesn’t clog up your notification with various things you’d typically see with screen recording apps. It’s also totally free and has no watermarks. It’s also open source so developers can submit fixes and patches all on their own or build their own app based on this one.
