There isn’t any secret about the fact that iOS users can jailbreak, and Android users can’t. The Android platform is far more open than iOS is but there are still some things that they can’t get, a decent screen recorder for one. iOS users would get things like that from Cydia but, as this can’t be downloaded on Android, that option is closed. However, we do have an app called CoolPixel, a great screen recorder app that also doubles up as an app for video editing and creation. It works as well on Android as it does on iOS and we’re going to walk you through downloading it on your android device.

CoolPixel Alternatives :
While CoolPixel is a great screen recorder app, it is not the only one. Before CoolPixel, we had these two, both popular Cydia downloads. Now you can have them without having to install a jailbreak:
AirShou is a name that most jailbreakers will recognize, given that it used to be one of the most popular screen recorders ever released through Cydia. After it was withdrawn, users were forced to find another alternative but now AirShou has returned, bigger and better than ever before. With top-quality sound recording, videos at 1080P at up to 60fps, and an app that uses little in the way of device resources, AirShou now does not require you to jailbreak to use it. Get all the details on what AirShou [ext link] has to offer by clicking on the link.
iRec Screen Recorder used to be the most downloaded from Cydia but it fell off the face of the earth after the developers ceased the updates. Now they have updated it, added in loads more features and made it into a much better app. iRec offers auto compression so you don’t fill your device up with recordings, full HD Video Recording, a whole heap of settings and much more. You no longer need to jailbreak to install iRec and it has support for all iOS versions. Click the link and find out what iRec [ext link] is offering.
