Recording games on your console or PC is pretty easy these days. But, what if your game of choice is on mobile? Search Google's Play store, and there's a bevy of apps promising to record your screen with ease. Sadly, most of them require you root your device, or simply look a bit dodgy. If you're a Samsung user, there's a legitimate choice that won't require you meddling with your device -- it's called Game Recorder+. The app lets you record any game (along with your grinning mug, and commentary as you play it), and captures the game sound direct from the device, too. We'd find it even more useful if we could just record whatever we wanted, but this seems like a good start.

There are other features that should smooth out the whole experience. A "game boost" feature reckons it'll optimize your phone's memory while you play, and a floating menu widget lets you start recording without having to pause the game and go back into the Game Recorder+ app if you were already playing. Clips can be recorded in 1080p, edited/trimmed afterwards and uploaded to YouTube direct from the app. There is, of course, a massive catch: as alluded to already, you have to have a Samsung device to join the fun (currently Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, Note 4, S5, Note 3, S4 and Note 2 handsets).
