I'm not sure if this is answering your question, but you might want to contact Jenn Downs a researcher at MailChimp. I just saw a presentation she did on testing applications on mobile devices. She needed to capture what was happening on screens while people were actually using the devices.

I couldn't find a website for her, but she's on Twitter! :)

> I've been looking into ways of capturing tablet screens (i.e., I want to

> demo the same way we do withl desktop software). From what I can see,
> this is possible, but you need to use a capture card, which my laptop doesn't
> have and I'm pretty sure it's not even possible to install one internally.
> So I believe what I need is an external capture device.

> So... my questions are:
>
> Has anyone ever done anything similar to this? If so, how did you do it?

> Has anyone ever used an external capture card type device? I'm looking at

> Any suggestions are appreciated! Thanks!
