Luckily, this app gets 1 Million install on play store with over 424,341+ positive reviews. The sole purpose of this app is screen recording. But how it feasibly record video is the point. In this review I am putting my unbiased opinion about this mobile app.

  8. Best part is that you don’t need to click save anywhere to save the configuration.



Cons & Limitations

No app is without limitations. While using DU Recorder I faced various issues which developers might have to look upon. Raise my voice fellas.
  1. No preference or options allowed for gif recording.
  2. Video to gif is pretty straightforward. No option to set quality and resolution.
  3. Gif recording lags a lot.
  4. Gif icon stay visible while gif recording. WHY?
  5. DU should invest their time to introduce animated PNG recording in android.
  6. Video editing has very few options. Elaborating the word FEW it does not support to add text in either video or screenshot.
  7. Du Recorder does not record internal audio.
  8. No self hosted cloud feature, it would be better with paid option.

Is it better than other screen recording android apps?

Yes it does often. DU Recorder is 100% stable app. As I already stated that it never crashes. Considering the performance, it is both ram and battery efficient. Being a AAA app, it does not overlay annoying ads while recording. Neither show background/lockscreen ads while operating mobile.
Being honest about features, this app should support adding text – caption over videos. It would allow configuring gif recording. It would be even better if there is no gif recording feature at all. Gif recording is a nightmare in this app. They know it and that’s why they come up with separate app.


DU recorder is an app by a trusted publisher, which make hardware efficient apps. Practically saying, it does not hurt gaming by lag or stuttering. Okay, here is my opinion on DU Recorder, you are free to put your own in the comment section.
Wait, are you a developer, you can also get your app reviewed by following these terms (Its free).


  1. How do I delete a video that’s recorded on DU
    It automatically records when I just record a video
    I would like to be able to press the button to put it on du

    • Hi steven,
      I am not able to get what are you asking.
      I hope you clearify it. Also, their is no such option to force put it on any other place so the video you record using du goes under du.
