Recorded With Reflector: Color Switch

Our Recorded with Reflector video of the week is Color Switch. Tap the ball carefully through each obstacle and your ball will switch color with some powerups. You must follow the color pattern on each obstacle to cross it, but be careful not to pass through the wrong color, or you’ll have to start again.

You can download Color Switch for free in the App Store or in the Google Play Store.

How to record with Reflector 2:

Pro tip: You can also mirror and record Android gameplay by connecting to Reflector using the built-in Google Home Cast technology on your Android device.  

  1. There are two ways to record your mobile device once it’s wirelessly mirrored to the Reflector software on your computer. You may click the “Record” button on the top left of the mirrored device (shown below). Alternatively, you can begin recording from within the Reflector menu (the little orange icon at the top of the image below).

Reflector provides voiceover support so you can include your voice with a device recording. This feature is often used in tutorials, presentations, lesson plans and mobile app reviews. In addition, you can enable your Facetime HD Webcam from the Reflector menu to include a video of yourself with the mobile device recording.

Pro tip: You can connect and record multiple iOS devices at the same time. This is ideal for educators and mobile gamers who may need to display and record multiple devices simultaneously.
