Record iPad screen


A lot of people are asking, “Is there an app to record what is happening on the iPad screen?” while there are still some people don’t know why we need to record iPad screen. Let me tell you the wide use of recording iPad screen activities:

  • App tutorial or review or troubleshooting - The best way to show how one app works is to actually record what's going on and capture the iPad screen as a video.
  • Playback of how you play a game - You may want to record a video while playing a game on iPad for a review.
  • Record the creation process - Record how you draw a masterpiece with a drawing app, or how you make slideshow with your photos, even record the slideshow to a video.
  • Record anything you want to save - find some funny stories, useful passages or cool pictures? No need to figure out how to save them to your iPad, just recording while scanning.

In these cases, you will find recording the iPad screen activities is the best choice. You don't need to install any app on your iPad since it is possible to record iPad screen on your Mac.
