This program is different from the iPhone Screen Recorder due to how you do not require a PC in order to record, as the application is installed onto the iPhone itself. Unlike other apps of this sort, you don’t have to go through the process of jailbreaking your iPhone. Upon recording, the recorded video will be stored on your iPhone in MP4 format.

This application is perfect for recording videos that you don’t want to go through the process of setting up your computer in order to go through with the recording. You are able to record videos of high quality as well as recording audio too, however when recording your iPhone 6 screen a red bar will appear at the top of your screen, which can be unpleasant to the viewer.

Shou (iOS Mobile App)

The Shou application is very different from the other 2 options as not only is it an application for the iPhone itself, but it has been developed with the pure intention of creating a smooth and clear recording. To take things a step further, you are also able to stream your recording to the app’s website. The only catch here is that in order to record your screen, another app (Shou.TV) must be installed too.

This application has no ads on it, no recording limits, and even better, no ugly irremovable watermarks, as well as being able to produce high quality recordings. However, in order to use this application, you are required to jailbreak your device and a red bar will appear at the top of your device.
