What is Reflect in ScreenFlow?

Reflect in ScreenFlow is a feature that allows users to display the screen of their iOS device on their Mac. This is particularly useful for individuals who want to record or stream content from their iPhone or iPad directly onto their computer. The Reflect feature essentially mirrors the iOS device's screen, enabling users to capture whatever is happening on their device in real time.

To use this feature, users need to connect their iOS device to their Mac via a USB cable. Once connected, ScreenFlow will automatically detect the device and users can then choose to reflect their device's screen. This feature is beneficial for creating tutorials, demonstrations, or any other content that requires the display of an iOS device's interface.
