SCRATCH review by Jennylou R.

"Best software for beginners."

What do you like best?

I love how students from different level can adapt to its interface. The software is very user friendly but students can create a lot of cool stuff in it.

What do you dislike?

As a teacher it was difficult for me to check student progress if the students didn’t share their work well. Also when students animate the sprite they get confused with the positions of their character.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use the software to introduce programming concepts to students. We found out that students learn to apply math skills and creativity using this software.

"The best pro media player I've found. Waiting for better."

What do you like best?

I like the price (free or $5 isn't bad!) and I love how it supports any format i've thrown at it. The interface takes time, but once you dive in, you'll find pretty cool color correction features, easy comparison, and other on-set tools that will make life easier.

What do you dislike?

I don't love the quirkiness of the program. The interface ranges from "totally makes sense" to "what were they thinking". I can't find a quick and easy way to do a basic task like exporting a still. I really wish they'd use Finder instead of their own file system navigation to get to your media.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's free, get it if you have the problems I do; however, I think the market is RIPE for a lightweight program that can handle pro codecs with ease.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It fills in the gap of a pro media player that supports all kinds of camera and editing codecs.

What Other Video solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!
