iRec Screen Recorder

At one time iRec was the screen recorder of choice for anyone who used Cydia, the only way you could download it. After the developers failed to keep it updated, it fell out of favor and people stopped using it but now the developers have revamped it. It has got more features than it ever had before, and more support, it now supports all iOS devices on all iOS versions up to and including iOS 11. What’s more, a jailbreak is no longer required.

How to Download iRec :

Because it is not an official app store app, iRec is not available for download through the iOS app store. It is, however, available through an app installer called ACMarket and we are going to show you how to get it:

  1. Follow the guide at the link to download ACMarket app [ext link] 
  2. When the installation has finished, open ACMarket app and go to the search bar 
  3. Type in iRec [ext link] and wait while the results are brought up
  4. Tap the one that matches your iOS version
  5. Follow the download instructions that appear on your screen 
  6. When the installation has finished, you can start using iRec to record your screen 

How to Stop iRec Crashing :

Because iRec is not an official app store app, Apple is not going to let it run for too long. They do regular reviews of all the app certificates and will revoke any that are not official, resulting in iRec crashing within a few days of installation. The only way to get it back is to reinstall it but you can stop Apple from doing this by downloading a VPN tool called Anti Revoke [ext link]. Find out how by following the linked post.

iRec Alternatives :

iRec is a good screen recorder, packed with features but it isn’t going to offer what everybody wants. If you find that iRec doesn’t have what you want then don’t worry, because there are alternatives, such as these popular alternatives:

  • AirShou

AirShou is a popular screen recorder and many jailbreakers will already recognize the name. At one time, AirShou could only be got from Cydia and was one of the most downloaded of all apps of its type but, eventually, the developers withdrew it from Cydia, leaving users having to find another one. AirShou is back, totally redeveloped and with support for all devices on all iOS versions. Some of the features include being able to record your screen in 1080p at 60fps, having top-quality stereo sound and a simple to use app with a start-stop button on the screen. Find out how you can download AirShou and what other features it offers by clicking on the link.

  • CoolPixel

CoolPixel is the next alternative to iRec, a screen recorder app that offers much more besides the basic screen recording features. As well as letting you record your screen in 1080p at 60fps, CoolPixel also offers video editing features. You can create and edit videos all within the same app, adding features like subtitles and dubbing with a swipe of the finger or choosing from a series of rich-filters to give a movie effect to your creation. There is also a search facility that lets you find more videos at BGM online or you can import your own. With support for Android devices as well, CoolPixel is one of the most versatile screen recorder apps and is easy to download. Find out what else CoolPixel is offering and how to download it by clicking on the link.

We all need a screen recorder at some time or other and, in the absence of a decent one from Apple, these are the best to turn to. Tell us what you think of iRec and follow us on Facebook for more app updates.
