It has always been difficult to do a screen recording of your iPhone or iPad.

If you remember clearly, Apple does not allow any type screencast or recording apps on their App Store (unless if you use QuickTime on a Mac). Some developers were able to bypass that. But it was a matter of time before deletion.

However, if you are willing to give up some of your free time to try out AirShou, the app that lets iOS users record their screen. This is going to be a piece of cake.

I made a compilation of screen recording apps before. But by far, AirShou is the best with its elegant interface and the ability to go live via its Shou.tv service.

Not only that it provide a basic screen recording feature, but AirShou is integrated with Shou.TV, a community for iOS and Android gamers to broadcast, host their gameplay and meet new people. Noted that if you upgraded to iOS 9, there is a similar built-in feature called ReplayKit.

But there are several problems with Apple’s ReplayKit

  • Not all games are compatible with the feature
  • No recording on the home screen
  • Doesn’t support any apps except for those under the Games category

This is when AirShou and Shou come in to save the world, isn’t it?

Both of these applications will let you record the screen of your iOS device, and if it happens to be gameplay, you can quickly share it on Shou.TV (similar to YouTube Gaming and Twitch). In case it’s just an ordinary recording, then you can save it directly to your Camera Roll.

How to Record Your iPhone Screen using AirShou

The AirShou app is now available for download from the iEmulators store.

  1. Click on this link from your Safari browser
  2. Scroll down until you see AirShou
  3. Tap the ‘Install’ button
  4. Go to Settings > General > Device Management and Trust

Now all you have to do is wait for the app to installed on your home screen. Upon opening, you will see two options: Start Broadcasting and Start Recording.

You know which one you want to choose right? Shou also provide settings such as Format, Orientation, Resolution, and Bitrate. Config it to your liking and tap on Start Recording.

Get out of the app and you should see a red banner on top of the screen. This indicates you’re currently recording your iOS screen. Tap on it to stop at any time.

The Recordings tab from AirShou is the recording viewer. Users also have the ability to Play, Open in, Save To Camera Roll, and Delete from the same tab.

Can’t Open the App? Here’s How to Fix

Just like any other third-party applications, since iOS 9, Apple has put extra restrictions upon them. As a result, users will have to trust the app they downloaded individually.

This instructions is from one of the post we wrote about on Untrusted Developer issue.

  1. Go to Settings > General > Profile
  2. On this page, you may find several enterprise apps
  3. Choose the app corresponding to the app that iPhone doesn’t let you open
  4. Tap on the Trust button and another one to confirm

Have fun!

What if AirShou Doesn’t Work or Can’t be Downloaded?

AirShou isn’t the only screen recording app for iOS. If you tried to download AirShou and it shows an error like “Unable to Download” or something like that, it’s time to move on.

Below you will find a list of other screen recorders for iPhone and iPad as well. Check them out and see if they work on your device.

  • iRec (now updated to support iOS 10)
  • Vidyo! (went from an official App Store application to sideloading app)

Be sure to let me know how it goes for you.

  • Jesicca

    AirShou is the best app if you want to record iPhone screen. Have been using this with Shou livestream as a combination. Thanks for the review.

    • jeffcard

      Thanks for the recommend, it works pretty good for me. I used to record my iPhone screen with an app call acethinker iphone recorder, easy as airshou.

      • Xos7

        Air shou will not work with iOS 9.3.4-iOS 10.0

        • LJ

          This^^^^^ I had it on my iphone until I upgraded to 9.3.5. It stopped working. I got the mesage that the ap wasn’t trusted. Went to settings et all and it would not let me “trust” the ap. I deleted the ap to see if re-downloading it would do the trick. Nope! Now I am not even able to download Airshou at all. FU Apple!

        • Zack V.

          I have iOS 9.3.5 and it works for me… is that a glitch or should it work?

    • Kmsswisher33

      I have iOS 9.3.4 and device management does not pop up. Any suggestions?

      • Jamar Jennings

        Only thing you can do is wait for them to fix the app if you don’t want to pay anything but I subscribed to the Buildstore that they advertised. It installed another profile on my phone and ten minutes later after my phone was added to their system I was able to download and use Airshou without any problems. It’s $10 a year which is really cheap so that’s why I tried it. The Buildstore also gives you access to other tweaked apps like YouTube and snapchat etc giving you way more features than the standard app. If you don’t want to pay then you can just keep checking to see if you can download Airshou. I’m sure eventually it will be fixed but apparently this is a regular occurance because the certificates are constantly being revoked. Using the Buildstore seems to be a more permanent solution.

  • Ly

    I am using iphone 5s ios 9.3.2. Its stuck at Airplay and choose mirroring. I can’t find Airplay at my phone. Please help. Can’t record.

    • Zack V.

      Air Play is in your control center. The thing with the flash light, the calculator, timer, and camera button options. There are 2 rectangle boxes next to each other.The one on the left is Air Drop, and it has a picture of a circle with many other circles in it. The one right next to it, on the right, is Air Play. Press on that rectangle that says “Air Play”, and it will then bring up another page for airplay. it’ll show your name of your iPhone, and turn on “Mirroring”. Then press done and you can then record from your device from there. It will be saved in the app itself and you can download it to your Camera Roll.

    Hi

  • Ted Aguinaga

    Make sure that you re using the iOS device while visiting the website in which you want to install the Air Shour Recorder app. After successful completion, get back to your home screen and search for the icon of Air Shou app. If you are on iOS 9 or later, you have to trust the application.
