xRec Display-recording App Already Pulled From the App Store
Just two days ago, it was discovered that another Display Recording application
, a feature that is usually only found on jailbroken iOS devices, had become available to the publicís reach in the iOS App Store.
The application, known as xRec, allowed the user to record the display as they performed actions on the device; it also enabled microphone audio recording. This kind of device recording combination makes for great step-by-step how-tos with voice overs.
Unfortunately, it appears that Apple didnít take the release of the application too kindly. The application is no longer available in the App Store after having been pulled. We assume that like other display recording applications
that have hit the App Store in the past, xRec fell victim to having went against the App Storeís terms and conditions.
Itís sad to see perfectly functional applications get pulled from the App Store for such tedious reasons. It really cuts down on innovation from iOS developers and keeps iOS device functionality right where Apple wants it instead of where the user wants it.
Luckily, those that snagged the application from the App Store while it was available will still be able to use the application if itís installed on an iOS device or stored in the userís iTunes library. If you didnít grab it, youíre too late, but if youíre jailbroken, you can still opt to use Ryan Petrichís famous Display Recorder
application in Cydia.
