iOS 8, OS X Yosemite enable simpler iOS screencapture
The combination of <A href=" ation.options/">iOS 8</A> and <A href="">OS X Yosemite</a> allows for easier screencapture of iOS devices, according to a new Apple <a href"">document</a>. In order to support the App Store's <a href="">future App Previews</A>, Apple has tweaked Yosemite to treat an iOS device as a camera input, meaning that any video recording software can be used to capture onscreen activity. Currently recording is <a href="">described</a> as "extremely laggy," but it will presumably improve as both iOS 8 and Yosemite get updated betas.<br /><br />Capturing video is already technically possible with iOS devices, but requires a more complex setup involving AirPlay Mirroring, or an HDMI feed into capture equipment. Being able to record directly to a Mac may make it both cheaper and simpler for developers to produce promotional videos.<br />

This could be really handy. I hope they give the option of recording/ignoring the "spot" that represents taps, swipes, pinches, etc.
