How to Record iPhone and iPad Screen Using Shou

For all those folks who are envy to iOS 11’s screen recorder, Shou can be exceptionally useful as it's quite good at recording iPhone and iPad screen. Read on to know more about how it works!

iOS 11 allows you to record your iPhone screen with utmost ease thanks to the built-in screen recorder. But what if your iOS device is not compatible with the latest iOS version, how would you capture the screen of your iPhone?

There are two other ways through which you can record your iPhone screen. The first method is to use QuickTime Player on your Mac to get things done. And the other way is to use a third-party app.

Just in case, you don’t want to use QuickTime Player and wish to carry out the entire process right on your iOS device, I would recommend you to try out Shou app.

It’s an excellent iPhone screen recorder. As the app is not available in the App Store, you will need to sideload it on your device. It is compatible with both iOS 7, 8, 9 and 10.

How to Record iPhone and iPad Screen

Step #1. Open in Safari on iPhone or iPad.

Step #2. Download and install Emu4ios Store (Beta) on your device. You can download apps which are not there in iOS App Store from Emu4ios Store.

(You might need to enable Assistive Touch in order to record full-screen videos. Launch Settings app → tap on General → tap on Accessibility → scroll down and tap on Assistive Touch and toggle it on.

Even when we disabled Assistive Touch on our iPad, this app allowed us to record full-screen video. But, iPhone 6 didn’t record full-screen video even when we enabled it.)

If you to want to stop recording, either tap on the red banner on top of your device or go to Shou app and then tap on the recording button.
