iRec Screen Recorder

iRec used to be one of the most popular screen recording apps of all time. At one time, you could only get it by jailbreaking until it was released as a free app that didn’t need you to jailbreak. Sadly, the developers didn’t keep it updated as the iOS firmware moved on and it fell out of use, forcing people to either go without or use another no-jailbreak screen recorder called AirShou. The good news is, iRec is back and it is fully compatible with all versions of iOS . It needs no jailbreak, is free to download but you cannot download it directly to your device without using Cydia Impactor.
