Display Recorder allows live iOS screen recording

Bugun Software has released Display Recorder, a new app designed to allow iOS device users to make live recordings of what is happening on their device’s display. To record, users simply open the app, tap the record button and then exit the app and carry on using their iOS device while the app records video in the background. Recordings are made in real-time directly to an H.264 MP4 format and include both video and audio; users can upload the resulting recordings directly to YouTube or save them to the device’s Camera Roll. The app also features adjustable video orientation and video and audio quality settings and hardware accelerated video recording; a Screen Capture recording mode is also available for capturing OpenGLES apps such as games.

Notably, Apple has not traditionally allowed third-party screen capturing applications on the App Store, effectively relegating such features to the realm of jailbroken devices. It is unclear whether this represents a change in Apple’s App Store policies or merely an application that has slipped through the review process and may soon be removed from the App Store. For now at least, Display Recorder is available from the App Store for $2. [via 9to5Mac]

Unfortunately, Display Recorder has been pulled from the App Store. It was useful in its short life!

My company does lots of mobile usability work, and we built an iOS screen recorder app as a tool for ourselves. It can only be used for websites. Apple disallows screen recording in other iOS apps. We hope they change this policy in the future.

We’ve now made this app publicly available in the iTunes App Store. It’s called UX Recorder. Hope this is helpful to folks.
