I know that QuickTime Player can be used on iOS to record iPad screen. But what about Windows? I found Mirroring and it seems working (I failed to configure video resolution), but it's a trial version. Is there some free program to record iPad screen?

By the way, ideally I would like it to record taps on the screen like most windows screen recorders do with clicks, but this feature is not absolutely required.

How-To Geek recommends LonelyScreen. I tried it today and it's really easy to set up. To record a screen, click the carat in the lower-right corner to open the recording toolbar, then click the big red button in the center to start recording. The video is saved as an MP4.

There's not a built-in option to show taps in LonelyScreen. This guy suggests using Assistive Touch to show touches, which probably isn't what you had in mind. I tried it out in this gif.

  • Recording works, but is it possible to configure video resolution? Now it is 960*720.

  • Sorry, I forgot about the resolution part. LonelyScreen is pretty bare-bones, so I doubt it. Maybe the resolution is determined by the window size?

  • @Qwerity Sorry, I have only worked with SOHO networks. I don't have any experience with corporate networks. Your network admin should be able to fix it for you.
