All good things come to an end

iShowU, iShowU HD / HD Pro and Stomp have been retired

Where did the old apps go?

iShowU, iShowU HD/HD Pro and Stomp were retired early 2018. Looking back over the old ‘family' album, iShowU was born in 2006 and it developed quickly over the next year. After that came Stomp and then iShowU HD. These were my first “real” products on the Mac. It was an amazing time. It’s now 2017 and in computer years, that’s ancient.

They’re now like some of our dear grandparents: showing some weird quirks (when on modern mac’s), and becoming increasingly difficult to keep up to date. They’re all built on old tech, old API’s … many of which have been deprecated since … oh, about OS X 10.7 actually. So I’ve made the difficult decision to find a retirement village for iShowU, iShowU HD/HD Pro and also Stomp.

the new apps are ready to rock!

Not sure which to choose?

iShowU Instant The closest match to iShowU and iShowU HD. Records from the screen in 'realtime', so that when you press stop, you've got a movie file that is immediately usable. It's simple and fast.

iShowU Instant + Advanced Features The closest match to iShowU HD Pro. It adds to iShowU Instant with recording from iOS, multichannel audio recording, enhanced visualizations, simple video editing, audio filters and more.

iShowU Studio 2 A different kind of app to the previous (none of the previous apps let you edit). Studio 2 provides a full post-recording editing suite, with text & annotation tools, layered tracks, transitions and more. It's a good fit if you need to cut out mistakes, add in additional clips, freeze frame or use pan/zoom effects to highlight sections.

Thank you for using our products and I hope I have provided enough detail below to help you make a decision!
