    Are there any good (and free) screen recording apps out there?

    Copernicus is great, but it doesn't have the multitude of features like the apps you have to pay for...

    Not sure if you've considered this, and please correct me if you have, but surely you could just add the text in later in iMovie?

    or is that not exactly what you mean't?

    Whoa Jing looks pretty cool, but you can't change the FPS, or at least I haven't found anything.

    Copernicus Crashes like hell for me, once I start to record it decides to crash. Has there been any update to remedy this?

    I don't think you can change it but it isn't much... :(

    Actually, Jing doesn't work for me. It has a 5 minute video time limit, and it saves files as .SWF. Is there any working screen recording app for the Mac?

    I don't know your exact needs/requirements, but an online search found the following three mentioned a number of times:

    Display Eater
    iShowU
    SnapzPro

    You can figure out the freeware/shareware/payware side of things. I will say that if it's a program you'll be using a lot, and you expect to have some nice editing options, then it looks like you'll have to pay for some program.
