iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite brings a really useful feature that allows you to record the screen of your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. It is a native feature that does not require you to have any third party app or a jailbroken device. Apple has added the support of this feature to QuickTime for OS X Yosemite. You can record the screen of your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch in a simple way. This feature is designed especially for the developers as a video demo of their apps can be more powerful than the static screenshots.

It is also very handy if you want to show someone how to achieve a task or if you want to show gameplay of a game.
