iPad App User Testing
Iím new here and I have had a good look through the forum Ė I hope this is a suitable question for this forum (if not, I apologise). I just wanted to find out if anyone knows or is currently doing any user testing on their apps for the iPad? I would love to find some who knows a lot about this area and maybe we can chat? I have included a brief summary below for more detailÖ
I want to test a application, and I have this vision of being able to track what the user is touching, and also track the gestures which are being performed (such as pinch or scroll) and view this back in a visual way. For instance, I would like to give someone a prototype of the app on a phone/tablet, and for the user to go through the application, and then at a later date I can review the direct feed from the device whilst viewing the touches that they performed on another screen. I donít know if this is possible at all, so any help will be amazing! I basically want to find something like UX Recorder - however, this app is only for web based testing, and I canít run the app through a browser. It is a standalone application.
If anyone has any knowledge in this area, I would appreciate it if you could get back to me and we can chat. If this method of user testing isnít appropriate, I would appreciate a point in the right direction!
Thanks for everyoneís time who read this.

You could use userlytics.com for this.
Basically you can have a test done where you will be recording the participant face and verbal comments through their computer webcam and at the same time you will be recording everything that happens on the ipad screen while the participant goes through the app and their ipad screen is mirrored wirelessly onto their computer screen.
What you get after the test is a Picture in Picture of the participant (through their webcam) and a simultaneous image of their computer screen where you will see an exact wirelessly mirrored image of everything that transpired on their Ipad.
You will not see the actual finger movements. However, by seing how the screen changed, you will hopefully know what finger movements were used (and/or by listening to the participant explaining their actions).
This is a new service that userlytics is rolling out, you can use your own participants or those that userlytics recruits for you.
