What we offer
The Megacool SDK helps you grow your user base by providing unique gameplay recording and sharing functionality.
The gameplay recording does not impact the game experience and no user interaction is required. This means that the user doesn't have to anticipate when something cool is going to happen, but can trust that it'll be recorded and available to share when the game session ends. If the game session is longer than what the resulting GIF should be, the SDK provides several methods to trim what is captured down to the essentials.
GIFs can be previewed to the user before sharing, and you can have multiple recordings stored for later if the user wants to preserve their best GIFs inside your game. You can read about how to customize your recordings in our documentation here.
Tailored sharing experience
A GIF is not a .gif. When we talk about GIFs we're talking about short, animated, muted video clips. This can be achieved either with MP4 video files, or an actual .gif. Our SDK intelligently produces what is best suited for each app you're sharing to, using MP4s where possible for efficiency, and .gif for compatibility. Some apps accept neither, but create previews of links shared, which we also utilize to display the GIF.
With our tailored sharing using multiple formats we're able to make the GIF shown on twice as many apps compared to just using .gif, while also including a link back to the game to drive growth. You can read more about our app support here.
Our SDK supports sharing screenshots as well as GIFs. This is perfect for letting users show off their new high score, achievements or their awesome game characters.
Megacool screenshots use the same optimized media delivery pipeline we use for GIFs, with individual tailoring for each share destination to make sure your screenshots truly shine.
Minimal impact on the device
We know that performance is essential to you, and we do our best to not negatively impact the experience in any way. All our operations happen on background threads and most games shouldn't notice that recording is going on at all.
The download size of the SDK is 700KB on Android (900KB unpacked), and 2.5MB on iOS (5MB unpacked). We support iOS 7+, Android 4.1.x and up (API level 16) and Unity.
The Megacool SDK gives a deep insight into the user’s journey, including frequency of shares, installs, re-engagement and which apps are most commonly shared to. On the Megacool dashboard you can track all these metrics as well as watching recently shared GIFs and the most popular GIFs from your game!
The dashboard is capable of being run in a kiosk mode that allows you to view shared GIFs in real-time! Put it up on a screen in the office and enjoy what players are sharing from your game!
