Ever wanted to send more than just a screenshot to a friend or family member, showing them how to do something on their iOS device? The ability to record your iPhone's screen has only been possible for users who jailbreak, until now. A new app, Display Recorder, is now available in the App Store.

Display Recorder will record a video of your iOS device's screen, complete with audio, and allow you to share the video from within the app.

  • To get started, download Display Recorder from the App Store for $1.99.

  • Once recording has started, you can exit the app by pressing the home button on your device. Display Recorder will then record your device's screen until you go back into the app and press the stop button. The red bar across the top indicates that audio is being recorded along with the video.

  • You can then view your recorded videos and even share them directly from within the app.

If you prefer not to have audio recorded along with the video, you can disable it in the settings. With audio disabled, the red bar seen above will not be shown while you're recording. You can also control video quality, video size and duration in the settings.

This app is sure to come in handy for iOS users trying to help someone, or simply wanting to show off a feature or app on their iOS device.
