iRec Screen Recorder

iRec always used to be the single most popular screen recorder app found in Cydia but, after the developers left it without updating it, users found themselves having to find a more up to date alternative. Now, with jailbreaking failing, iRec has been hauled out, revamped and released again. This time it is fully up to date with support for all iOS versions and doesn’t need Cydia to work. With all the extra features added in, iRec is definitely worth downloading.

How to Download iRec :

iRec is not an official app because Apple won’t sign the app certificate and won’t let it into their store, so you can’t get it in the usual way. You can, however, get it from TweakBox app, a third party app installer, and here’s how:

  1. Follow the linked tutorial to download TweakBox 
  2. Wait until it finishes and then open TweakBox app
  3. Look for iRec and, when the results pop up, choose the one that matches with your iOS version  
  4. Follow the download instructions on your screen 
  5. When the installation has completed, open iRec and use it to record your screen for whatever you want. 

How to Stop iRec Crashing Problem :

When you download iRec you will find that, for a few days, it will work just fine but then it will crash. The reason for this is nothing to do with iRec itself, but more to do with it being an unofficial app. Apple reviews app certificates on a regular basis and revokes any that are not official, leaving you with an app that no longer works. You can stop this by installing Anti Revoke VPN tool. Find out how by clicking on the link.

iRec Alternatives:

iRec is one of the most in-depth screen recorder apps, especially now it has been updated with new features, but it might not be what you are looking for. There are other screen recorder apps and two of the best alternatives are:

  • AirShou

AirShou is a name that most jailbreakers will remember from when it could only be downloaded through Cydia. Now it’s a free app, no jailbreak needed, and the developers have given it a much-needed revamp after it was removed from Cydia for updating. AirShou offers top quality video recording in 1080p at up to 60fps and the addition of high-quality stereo sound can give your videos that professional touch. With a simple tap on a start-stop on-screen button, you can soon be recording videos that you want to keep or share with others.

  • CoolPixel

CoolPixel is an excellent iRec alternative, offering a wide range of features to tempt anyone. You can create your video, recording whatever you want on your screen, in 1080p 60fps quality, saving it as an HD video. Then, before you share it with anyone, you can edit it, right there, in the app. CoolPixel offers a range of video editing tools, including the ability to add subtitles or a bit of dubbing with a simple finger swipe, or adding a rich-filter for a movie effect. The search facility allows you to find more videos from BGM online and you can even bring in your own if you want. With full compatibility on Android devices too, CoolPixel is one app you don’t want to miss.

Screen Recorders are popular apps, simply because most, if not all of us, have needed to use one at some time or other. Try iRec, let us know what you think of it or if you opted for one of the others and follow us on Facebook to stay up to date with the latest updates.
