When testing published iOS apps or apps that are otherwise unable to captured by our mobile screen recording software (due to security or technical restrictions), your participant's activity can be captured via external webcam. Webcam tests are also useful if you wish to capture the participant's full hand motions or gestures while using your app or mobile website. External webcams are pointed directly at a mobile device and do not capture the participant's face.
