If you have ever tried to record an iPhone app whilst using it, you will know just how difficult it can be. With no built-in recorder like the Android, you are left with very little option besides jailbreaking your phone…until now. Today, we have iPhone Screen Recorder from Acethinker and here we are going to answer the most common questions so you can see whether the program is right for you.
How Does it Work? – With your iPhone, you will need to connect to the same WiFi network as your computer before touching ‘AirPlay’. After selecting your computer, everything should connect and you should see your iPhone display mirrored onto the computer screen. In truth, that’s all there is to it and, from here, you can choose your own settings, record in HD, take a screenshot, or simply watch something from your phone on a larger screen.
Can You Record Anything? – In short, almost. Sadly, there are some apps that block AirPlay and the SkySports Mobile TV app is an example of this. However, you can record all apps that allow AirPlay and this is the vast majority. After apps, you shouldn’t have a problem recording videos, video conversations, etc.
What Are Its Uses? – Ultimately, this program reaches out to a number of different users from those who want to record tutorials, those who prefer gameplays, and, again, others who prefer to just watch films on a larger screen as opposed to squinting at a small phone. Whether it is a video conversation or a high score on a game you are playing with your friends, the uses are almost endless. On a professional note, you can even project keynote presentations to your laptop screen and then beyond (onto a projector).
What About Live Streaming? – In recent years, live streaming has become an important part of the iPhone life cycle and the gaming industry as a whole. Luckily, Acethinker has clearly thought about this and you can stream directly to Twitch. If used with OBS (a free platform), you will be set up in no time and you can build your viewership by doing something you love.
Summary – On the whole, this is a superb program and one that should definitely enter your list of considerations if you’re looking for an iPhone recording program. Not only will you not have to worry about watermarks, there are no time limits and it also sits at a much lower price point than its competitors. If it matches your needs, you can record in HD and output to a variety of formats so go for it!
