I like recording the screen of my iPhone or iPad for various purposes. For instance, if I ever come across a smart hack, I choose the built-in screen recorder to capture the steps and share it with friends. It also comes handy when my grandfather asks me to show him a quick fix of a problem that’s killing his user-experience.
