If you are into iOS game development, sooner or later you are going to publish a gameplay video of your game. Unless you want to show how cute are your hands touching the screen and covering the entire game area, you will need to record what happens on your iPhone.
And even if you aren’t making an iOS game but just want to let the world know your awesomeness at Infinity Blade, you’ll still need a screen recording software.
Reflector wirelessly mirrors your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch screen to any Mac or PC, so you can see your iPhone or iPad on a larger screen, play games, watch movies, demo apps or present to your computer from your iPhone or iPad. Everything you do on the device is shown on the computer screen, wirelessly. And, obviously, you can record it.
Even better, you don’t even need to install anything on your iPhone. Let’s see how does it work:
1) Download, install and run Reflector
2) Select AirPlay mirroring on your iPhone:
iOS 7: Swipe up to access your Control Center. The AirPlay icon will appear beside the AirDrop icon in the second row from the bottom.
iOS 6: Double tap the home button on your device and swipe from left to right until you see the AirPlay icon. That’s one swipe for iPads, and two swipes for iPhones and iPods
3) Select the computer you want to use for the mirroring and enable it
And you’re done! Look at this photo:
Now everything you make on the iPhone will be mirrored on your computer and you also have an option to record what you’re doing in mp4. Oh, and it records sounds too!
With a 10 minutes trial version and a $12.99 full version, Reflector should really be the tool you are using to record your iOS sessions.
