iRec Screen Recorder

For so long, iOS users have craved a decent screen recorder on their iOS devices and, in the absence of one from Apple, we’ve found some appearing in Cydia. One of those was iRec, a very popular Screen Recorder in the early days of jailbreaking but, after a few updates were missed, people stopped using it. Now the developers have revamped iRec, given it more features, and support for all iOS versions. Read on for more details on how to download iRec [ext link].

How to Download iRec :

You won’t be getting this through the official app store; you will need to download Cydia app installer first:

  1. Download Cydia on your iPhone or iPad 
  2. Open Cydia and look for iRec using the search facility 
  3. Tap the version that goes with your iOS version
  4. Follow the in-app instructions to download iRec 
  5. Wait for the install to finished and you can start using iRec  

iRec Alternatives :

iRec is a great screen recorder, full of useful features but it may not have what you are looking for. If iRec isn’t what you want, there are a couple of alternative screen recorders you can try:

  • AirShou

AirShou is a great screen recorder, simple to understand and easy to use.  At one time, you would only have got AirShou through Cydia but now we can all use it, without having to jailbreak and no matter what version of the iOS firmware we are running. Now we can all record videos in full HD, with stereo sound of the highest quality and we can do it by tapping a button on the screen that starts and stops recording. Check out all the other features of AirShou [ext link] and how to download it by clicking on the linked post

  • CoolPixel

CoolPixel is far more than your average screen recording app. Sure you can record in Full HD at up to 60fps and you can record whatever you want on your screen but here’s where it differs from others, CoolPixel is also a video editor. With a range of editing tools to choose from you can edit the videos you created on your device, you can find more at BGM online or you can import others that you have. The controls are simple; add subtitles dubbing and movie-like effects with simple finger swipes and do so much more, not just on iOS but on Android too. Check out the linked post and find out how you can download CoolPixel [ext link] today.

With the lack of decent screen recorder provided by Apple its no wonder that we turn to alternatives like iRec, CoolPixel and AirShou. These apps go above and beyond what a basic screen recorder should offer so try them; download iRec, see how you get on with it and have a go with the others too.
