If telling your friends about a cool new website or showing Mum how to get her wi-fi working is a little hard to achieve via mail or a blog you might want to consider screenr. At it’s heart, screenr allows you to record up to 5 minutes of whatever is on your desktop without the hassle of installing another application and then spending time uploading it to a service and sharing the link.

screenr couldn’t be easier. You hit the record button, a java applet loads in your browser and you simply drag the window to the size of the screen that you want to record. Hit record and whatever is shown in the viewfinder is captured, uploaded to the screenr servers and available for you to tweet or share as you please.

You can record any size you want up to 2560×1600 on a PC and 1920×1200 on a Mac and all screencasts are public requiring a twitter account to post.

Classic case of taking a task that many people perform on a daily basis and removing the friction to make it as simple as possible.

Viewing the public stream of screencasts reveals some really interesting new sites I hadn’t heard of before and the small snippet format is perfect to get a taste of a new service. We’ll be experimenting with this service in the future to show you folks fun stuff we find around the web on our travels.
