We recently came out with an exciting new feature in Voila which should be of immense use for when you need to capture your iOS device’s screen! Voila 3.9 introduced iOS Screen Recording; wherein you can capture the screen of your iPhone or iPad in an incredibly simple way. While some of you may not see the immediate need for it, there definitely will come a time when you absolutely have to! Whether it is for a presentation or simply something you need to show a friend, you’re covered! We’re going to outline how you can do so in a cool, calm and collected manner
You all probably knew that iOS screen recordings are nothing new as it’s been possible with QuickTime since last year. We wanted something to build upon just simple recordings. Voila introduces this feature and the possibilities with it are endless. With the app, you can now record videos and add your own voiceovers to make them functional! This makes it perfect for YouTubers, DIYers and those who need a solution where their iOS screen is under the limelight. Going further, Voila can also beautifully curate your video recordings and file them properly for easy retrieval later. What’s more, you can share them with the world in no time!
We’ve simplified the entire process of capturing the screen of your iOS device in all its glory. To begin, connect your iPhone or iPad to your Mac with the supplied Lightning cable. Next up, open Voila and hit ‘Record’ on the main Voila Toolbar and select your iOS device from the drop down menu that appears. The photos in this post should illustrate just how easy the entire process is!
You’ll now be presented with a view of your iOS device’s screen along with an option to select your choice of audio input. This is especially useful for those who want to add commentary or narration to videos.
Do note that you can only record an iPhone or iPad with a Lightning connector port as we wanted to ensure a certain quality during video captures. Also, to record a device for the first time, you’ll need to simply connect the device to your Mac and activate it on iTunes. To get the best results when using Voila to record your iPhone or iPad’s screen, we recommend using an iPhone 5 and a Mac model that is post-2011. You will also need Yosemite on the Mac and iOS 8 on your iOS device.
You’ll be impressed with Voila’s take on iOS screen recordings. For more info., you can always get in touch with us on Facebook and Twitter. If you haven’t experienced Voila yet, you can take it for a spin by downloading the no commitment, free trial! Happy screen recording!
