iOS 7 and all previous iOS version comes with an inbuilt Screen Capture or Screenshot features, which let you take a screenshot of your screen and save it as .png format. Later you can view the same from iOS gallery. But what about recording the screen? Till now (up to iOS 7.1.1) Apple didn’t included any such features, may be apple will think about it with it upcoming iOS firmware but the thing is, Screen Recording feature is still missing on iOS 7.1.
However, that’s not the end, If you have jailbroken your iOS device then you can get this screen recorder app work on your iPad or iPhone. There are several such apps available on Cydia, but 90% of them either doesn’t work with iPad or work in such a way that will be too critical for you to handle. After doing a long search and installing almost all those iPad Screen Recorder App, we found one such cydia app which works good with iPad mini, iPad air and all other iPad model running iOS 6, iOS 7 or UP. (it may work with iOS 5 but we did’t tried yet)
