The app called Display Recorder just made it to the iTunes App store allows you to record your iPhone, iPad screen in real time along with sound, which makes it different from the one available on Cydia. The app is most likely going to be pulled down soon by Apple, so make sure you install it fast as it will cost you only $2. The developer is offering the app as a universal binary supporting both the iPhone and iPad natively.
Ryan Petrich has similar app available for jailbroken devices on Cydia, but it lacks audio support, which you will get with the one available on the official iTunes app store. Developer Bugun Software has used the same name as that of Ryan Petrich’s, and for that the latter has even posted complain for stealing his app’s name.
Unlike Petrich’s Cydia app, Bugun Software’s app has two major benefits:
- It offers Screen recording that at the same time record audio from the iPhone’s microphone and later merges it with the recorded video.
- The app records video in a format that is immediately accessible to view on your iPhone and iPad.
Note: Reported by iTunes, if you’re experiencing difficulty capturing screencasts, just change your Region Format in Settings to US.
The app has surely bypassed Apple’s strict policy against such application, and therefore, is going to be removed from the app store, so better be quick use the link given at the end of this post to install it on your iPhone or iPad.
The app is also loaded with feature that will allow you to upload the recorded screencast directly to your YouTube channel, together with facilities like adjustable video orientation, audio settings and the capability to export taped video to your image library.
