Recording the screen of your mobile device is really useful when it comes to testing. It helps clarify the actions leading up to the issue, especially with “in-the-wild” testing. However, many testers struggle with the best method for capturing that bug in video on that particular device or in the clearest way.
Based on reviews, it seems that iOS uTesters love Reflector which will wirelessly display your iPad or iPhone on your computer. Despite the small investment, those who have used the tool would say that it is worth it if you’re looking for a built-in recorder.
For Android users, there is MyMobiler which is a desktop application that allows you to capture the screen or video of your Android device through a USB connection or WiFi. Based on reviews, MyMobiler seems to be the best option if you don’t want to root your device.
Do you use either of these tools? Or do you prefer to use a secondary device to record your screen?
