Decades of fascinating and enlightening documentary work by filmmaker Ken Burns form the core of his self-titled app, which draws on close to four hours of footage compiled from documentaries covering a huge breadth of material relating to American history. While we’d have liked to have some longer clips included, careful, almost meticulous design and curation underpins everything. Only the 13-scene, 31-minute innovation playlist is available free, though; the rest of the videos and the other five playlists are locked behind a $9.99 in-app purchase.
QuickTime Player is great for doing short screen-capture videos when you need only limited editing capabilities, but to do more professional screen captures with screen zooming and other niceties, you’ll want to turn to a screen-capture application like Screen Flow or Camtasia for Mac. These tools, while somewhat costly, provide excellent abilities for both recording and professionally editing your recordings in an iMovie-style interface. Alternatively, if you have the time and the editing prowess, you can use iMovie to import your QuickTime recordings and edit them to your liking.
