Screen recording was added natively in Android 4.4 KitKat. Almost instantly, various screen recording applications showed up. One such screen recording app is SCR Screen Recorder by XDA Senior Member iwobanas, which has now been updated to work with newly released Android 5.0 Lollipop.

The vast majority of currently available screen recording apps require root access. SCR Screen Recorder, however, makes use of the android.media.projection API, which allows apps to capture the device’s screen without ADB. As a result, this application can be used on devices without root access. This might come in handy for those of you who can’t or don’t want to root your phones, tablets, or other Android devices.

With this application, you can easily record the screen to show off your development project or simply share something interesting with your friends. It will also work with Android 5.0 Lollipop–which will hopefully pop up some time soon on your device. The free version of the application can record up to three minutes of the video and has a visible watermark.

If you’ve been looking for a free and functional screen recorder that works on devices without root, SCR Screen Recorder might be right up your alley. Head over to the SCR Screen Recorder forum thread to learn more.
