Tips about iPhone screen capture
Since the remote screen sharing depends on Wifi and does not require any cable, the frame rate of the video is about 15 FPS, so it is little bit hard to record games. If you want to record screencast about how to use apps or other onscreen activities which require lesser FPS, Veency plus DemoCreator will be a decent choice.
Presently, you cannot set any VNC password on Veency. And to disable Veency, you can only disable Wifi or just uninstall the program.
