Mobile App Success Story: DU Recorder

Operating Systems, especially Android, have never really been in the habit of allowing users screen-record. Users were previously required to root their phones first before they could record anything on their screen. This whole process was tedious and a little bit risky because of the dangers associated with phone rooting. However, all these processes became a thing of the past, as a result of the advent of apps which support various phone versions, both Android and iOS. One of such apps is known as the DU Recorder.

DU Recorder App is a screen recorder for Android, which helps users record stable, clear and hitch-free screen videos. With a number of enticing in-app features like the presence of the screen capture option, video editing option and the video recorder tab, as well as the fact that the App requires no rooting to be set up, the App has been adopted by smartphone users who are always on the lookout for easy ways to record video calls, live shows, screen videos, game videos and so on.
