Record your mobile screen with an external camera or mobile phone You will need a camera for this and it is possible that the screen recording may not be very clear There may be issues related to sound and voice In the second method you need a PC You can connect the PC with your mobile phone via a USB cable A no. of apps are available that get activated via a PC and record your mobile screen With some apps you can see a mirror image of the mobile screen on the PC and can record it . The 3rd method is simple. You can directly record the mobile screen using an app For using some apps your mobile phone must be rooted There are other apps wherein rooting is not required. I am often asked – Which apps do you use to record the mobile screen? The first app that I used for quite some time is ASC I had bought the paid version of this app when I was using a Samsung Galaxy S3. This cost approx. 6 dollars This app needed to be activated via the computer each time and I could not use this app at all on my new phone Samsung Note 4 So I don’t use this app very much now The 2nd app that I have used is Mobizen Mobizen is a very user friendly app and there is no need to root the mobile . but you have to login each time you use the app and you have to do USB debugging as well You have to carry out a no. of steps to use the app Another advantage of this app is that you can project the mobile screen on the PC screen However I will tell you about an even simpler app The simplest app for mobile screen recording is AZ screen recorder In my opinion this is the easiest to use For this app you don’t need to root your phone nor do you need to activate it using the PC This app has a free and a paid version I have used both the free and the paid versions There is not too much difference in the 2 versions. Some additional features are available in the paid version Let’s install the AZ Screen Recorder on my Samsung S5 and learn how to use it’s free version This app works on Android Lollipop meaning it works on version 5.0 and above When I tried to test it on an old version of Android , I could not see the app on the Play Store If you have an old version of Android this app may not work on your mobile phone Let’s see how to use AZ screen recorder Click and open Play Store Type AZ Screen Recorder in the Search bar AZ Screen Recorder is displayed in the results.
