Record iPhone's screen


X-Mirage is a Mac application that allows anyone to record what is being displayed on their iPhone’s screen in real-time. 

When we need to record iPhone screen activities? Well, make App review or tutorial, show off your game skills in Temple Run, Real Racing or any game you like, record a demo for your video blog, show others how you draw a picture, make slideshow and stuff like that. In a word, whatever is on your iPhone screen can be recorded with X-Mirage.

X-Mirage works on your Mac and mirror iPhone display to the bigger Mac screen, then record the mirrored iPhone screen on Mac. In this article, we’re focusing on the screen recording ability of X-Mirage though, which is extremely easy to use.
