    I want to record gameplay and I can’t believe there’s so app that’s really suited for it. Most recording apps don’t record in 1080p (such as iOS’ inbuilt screen recording feature) and those that do, don’t record in 60 fps but only 30 fps. It makes a huge difference and I really want to record it in 60 fps. Also, the sound quality is often pretty bad.

    The closest I’ve found to what I am looking for is TechSmith Capture, it records in 1080p but only 30 fps and crap audio. I’ve seen other solutions where you connect the iPad/iPhone to the Mac and record it on the Mac, but that’s not really an option because the cable would be in the way for me to play properly. I can’t hold the device properly with that cable, I know this experience from the lightning recharging cable.

    Please anyone tell me I’ve missed an app that does exactly what I’m looking for! I can’t believe I haven’t found anything so far, it’s just ridiculous. What year are we, 2012? Thank you in advance for any advice.

    I know all of these but none of them do what I’m looking for.

    I’ve seen this one as well, but like I said I am really looking for one that records in 60 fps. The game I want to record has a lot of action going on and thus it makes a huge difference.

    So I tested recording with Quicktime Player. I basically connected my iPad to my Mac, launched QuickTime, selected the iPad as the audio and video source and started recording. The sound is high quality, the resolution is high quality too and it's more or less 60 fps. There are regular frame drops, however, and in the file information, it says the framerate is at 58. I guess that's an average, that includes these regular frame drops.

    Do you people know what's responsible for that? Is it my Mac's graphics card? It's an ATI Radeon HD 5870 1024 MB, so not the best. Or is it possibly the lightning cable reaching some limits of some sort?

    Also, when I select my iPad as the audio source in Quicktime, I can't hear the sound through the iPads speakers anymore.

    I still can't believe there's no proper solution for this very basic thing, but I'll try to experiment with Quicktime now if I could just get to hear the sound on my iPad while playing somehow and fixing those regular frame drops. The ideal solution would, of course, be an app on the iPad.
