I downloaded the update and gave Screeny 1.1 a test run.
Unfortunately, the videos I got are still sluggish and the screen
tears from time to time.
I tried making 640 x 480 screencasts using the new frame rates.
Each one was a slow, tearing, and pixelated video. :( I then tried
making smaller sized videos, and saw that the quality is better.
But what would be the point of making tiny screencasts, right?
I don't really know what to do to make Screeny work for me
anymore. Any advice?
I recorded from 30fps to 15, using the 640x480 sized frame. I'm
using the newer Macbook Pro. Here's the hardware overview:
Model Name: MacBook Pro Model Identifier: MacBookPro8,1
Processor Name: Intel Core i5 Processor Speed: 2.3 GHz Number of
Processors: 1 Total Number of Cores: 2 L2 Cache (per Core): 256 KB
L3 Cache: 3 MB Memory: 4 GB

The exact same thing happens to me. MacBook 13 inch purchased in
Feb 2011. When I start recording my % of CPU designated to Screeny
BLASTS up to 134%. This is probably what is causing it. So if I
play Minecraft and try to Screeny it. The fps on the game doesnt
drop but when i playback the recording it tears and the frames drop
to about 3. Please fix.

Unfortunately apple does not offer refunds through and of their app stores. It is part of the terms that you agree to when you make an Apple ID. Since apple is the one you legally and technically buy the apps through, that is all up to them.
If screeny does not work for you after this next update please let me know. I'm sure this next update will work for you, and in case you missed screeny now automatically saves videos and images to the cloud or easy sharing :)
Same problem :
Here's my mac spec : Macbook Pro i7 2.7Ghz, 4GB RAM, Snow
I can't even get decent video quality in this settings : 320x240 px
