If you’ve tried jailbreaking your iPhone, then perhaps you’ve probably heard about Ryan Petrich’s “Display Recorder” Cydia app. Cydia enables iOS users to install software packages on a jailbroken iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. As the name of the app suggests, the Display Recorder app will basically allow iPhone users to record what’s on their screen. But it seems that another app of the same kind has appeared over at the App Store, surprisingly, bearing the same time. Sources from the web are saying that Apple reportedly allowed an app of the same name, with the same recording functionality into the App Store.

The said app is developed by Bugun Software, and it is currently sold at $1.99. CultofMac notes that the app appears to be identical to its Cydia counterpart at first glance, but there are some glaring differences once you inspect it closely. Essentially, the Display Recorder will reportedly allow iPhone users to export to YouTube, adjust video and audio settings, and record audio from a the built-in microphone. But the app might not be available for long. That’s because Ryan Petrich sent out a tweet today saying, “Filed my first complaint in iTunes Connect today. Display Recorder in the App Store is not mine in spite of it using the same marketing.”
