The challenge

Mobile user testing made easy

We design and build mobile web and iOS apps for a variety of audiences, and conduct lots of user testing on mobile devices as a result. Over the years, we’ve used a variety of products to record user testing sessions of our web applications. When testing on mobile devices, however, we were stuck usign expensive document cameras, webcams, or other mobile devices that could record video. It was very difficult to get screen-in-screen video showing the user’s face.
