Review of JayCut

JayCut Reviewed 10 Aug 2009 · Average score 73%


The editing and playing is all Flash based so there is keyboard access only in certain browsers and really this should be considered a mouse user's site. The site was easy to navigate and linearised well, test was small but zoom is possible in the main areas.
