Making a Movie of an iPad/iPhone Screen

On several occasions I have needed to make a movie of an iPad or iPhone screen. I ran across an excellent method for that today. The OSX/MS Windows app called Reflection (http://www.reflectionapp.com) runs on the computer and presents an AirPlay interface to iOS. It works very well, is very low priced ($15) and because it is using AirPlay requires no change to the iOS device. It also has a record to .mov option that produces a very workable movie. Another side benefit of this is that you can show iPad demos/presentations without having to have an AppleTV if one is not available.
