1. How To Record screen on iOS 11?

I suddenly noticed that user might not want to record a whole video session.

Sometimes a simple screen shot serve this title. So, I added it too.

  • Screen Capture:
    • Shift – Command – 3 (screen capture full screen)
    • Shift – Command – 4 (print screen selected portion)
  • Screen Record: QuickTime Player app

Yes. This built in app from iOS 10.6 or above has this feature. Just use the record button in the player that records the iMac screen.

Once you press the red record button, the player will go out from screen. to stop recording, press Command + Control + Escape.

2. How To Record iPhone Screen iOS 11?

Not much of a difference when it is iMac or iOS. Since both are running on similar operating system.

So, here is the trick for recording iPhone screen without jailbreak.

    • IOS 11 – iPhone, iPad & iPod touch:

3. How To screen Record on Android?

My favorite device. No rooting is required.

Screen capture: Press Home + Power button simultaneously and hold few seconds.

These apps are so perfect to record the screen.

  1. DU Recorder
  2. AZ Screen recorder
  3. Mobizen

I often use the 3rd app to record Videos of my favorite songs. Except for the watermark in the output video, you would love its simplicity.

There is other problem too. The output file will be of huge size. May be adjust the recording resolution.

4. How To Record My Windows PC Screen?

There are plenty. But, most used screen recording software list.

  • Bandicam
  • Windows Encoder

What ever the app be – they do add their logo in the output video file. If you want to avoid the watermark, then use the software released by Microsoft itself. It is:

Windows Encoder: Using this you can convert the screen records into wmv compressed streaming format. Only problem is that it performance is very slower than other apps.

Forgot the mention about Print screen. Just use the keyword that says “Print Screen”. 🙂

  2. This is super useful for my job. I sometimes have to train people how to use apps in my organization so they can properly record what they are doing/have done. This means I can now record me using the app properly and just post in on our intranet. Super awesome.
