Have you ever wanted to use your Mac to record the action on your iPhone or iPad screen? It used to be that you used to have quite an elaborate setup to do so.
Not any longer. The new Reflection App allows you to do so via AirPlay. And at $14.99 for a single license ($39.99 for a 5 pack), it is much less expensive than any other means we’ve used or seen.
What you get for your money is full iPhone / iPad (running iOS 5) mirroring, including audio, with orientation updates and video optimization features, similar to what you would get with the Xcode iOS simulator. In our tests, our iPad screen looked crisp and snappy on our iMac and audio sounded fantastic. In test recordings via Screenflow, we saw no frame-slipping, but had some audio recording issues that we’re digging into right now.
If you have a need to display your iPad screen on your Mac, esp. for screen recording purposes, Reflection is an app you need to have in your arsenal.
