Comparison of Mobile Screen Capturing SDKs

If you're looking for a way to record what's happening on the screens of your iOS or Android app users: This is a list of currently available screen capturing SDKs.

General Observations

Most SDKs listed here focus on one of these two use cases:

  1. Usability Testing during development
  2. Recording of Let's Play videos by users

The SDKs are generally easy to integrate by adding a few lines of code to your project.
