Did you know that you can do a screen recording of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using your Mac? Not only is this possible, but it is very easy to do!

First, you need your iOS device with iOS 8 (or later) installed connected to your computer with OS X Yosemite (or later) installed. Next, open the application called QuickTime Player.

Next, in the File menu choose “New Movie Recording.”

This will open a window for recording your movie and activate your computer’s camera.

In that screen is a control bar with a red record button. Next to that button is a little arrow with a drop down menu. In that menu will be a lot of items, including your connected iOS device. Choose the iOS device and the display in the recording window will go from your camera to your iOS screen!

All you have to do now is click record and the application will record whatever you want to do from your iOS device. This is also a great way to show an iOS device through your Mac without recording.

When you are done you can save the recording from the File Menu.

A very cool, very simple, and basic technique.

Have you ever wanted to add an app to your Dock for quick access? If so, here are two easy ways to accomplish this.

1. Open the app. Go to your Dock and control click the app’s icon. Go up to “Options” and choose “Keep in Dock.” To remove the app from your Dock do the same process and select “Keep in Dock” to uncheck it.

2. The second method is even easier. Drag the app’s icon from your Applications folder to the Dock. A space will be made. Unclick and the icon will appear in the Dock. To remove it from the Dock click and drag the icon off of the Dock until it turn transparent and has “Remove” above it. Unlock and it will turn into a cloud and disappear.

It’s as basic as that!

If you haven’t heard it on some of the Spotlight Network podcasts, or you don’t follow me or other MyMac writers on twitter, or just saw it in another source; I recently self published a children’s book called “Looking for a Dinosaur” to the iBookstore and Lulu.com. I thought it might be interesting for you, the MyMac reader to read about how I did it- since the book was illustrated and created entirely on a Mac and the iPad.

Macspiration 100
100!

On September 18, 2007, in Features, Macspiration, by Donny Yankellow


When I thought about what I should do for Macspiration 100 I though about making a list off 100 links, or 100 terms, or asking readers to pick your favorite articles from the past two years (WOW!). In the end I decided to pick ten of my favorite articles.

In picking the articles I gave myself some rules. I was looking for articles that had uncommon tips. I wasn’t looking for the “burning a CD” article, or the “changing icons” article. I wanted to find ten articles that cover more uncommon topics. I also tried to pick older articles. Why list something that was posted in the last month? I wanted something that might be off the radar.

So, without further ado, here’s ten of my favorite Macspiration articles, in no particular order.
