Happy Friday and for US folks happy Labor Day! With the US long weekend ahead of us, I thought I'd share some reflections on week two of our beta.
When we started Replay, we had a hunch that the best way to understand software was to record it and explore it after the fact. It's been super gratifying to hear that Replay has already helped folks
  • See why their application scrolled
  • Figure out why the loading pane appeared for a split second
  • Better understand react's internal render loop
  • Alter the way they conceptualized their application. WOW!
We're also hearing requests for more collaboration features: is it alright to share Replay with others, is it alright to share recordings with the rest of the team.
We're so excited that Replay is already helping folks explore their software and collaborate with their team members!

Accounts + Shared Recordings

We'll begin rolling out new features next week around private recordings and sharing recordings with other users. Let us know if you think Replay would be a great fit for your team!
