One of the main limitations of Morae 1 & 2 was that it could only do PC based user research. The new version offers dual camera support, which is a big deal. This means you can now use Morae to do mobile device testing (shown below), paper prototype testing, paper card sorts, participatory design studies, group activities… you name it.
Obviously the resolution and picture quality you get from a webcam isn’t going to be fantastic, but it’s passable for research purposes.
Amendment: Shane Lovellette of Techsmith informs me that Morae 3 supports recording from DV Cameras as well as webcams – which means you now get pretty good quality video footage. IMHO, that’s another pretty big selling point.
Well done Techsmith for responding to their customers’ needs. More info on the Techsmith site.
