These instructions explain how to turn on gesture recording so that customers can see where you're tapping and swiping as you test their products.
The Trymata app is already set up to record your screen and voice, but to record your taps, swipes, and other gestures, you’ll need to enable a special setting on your phone.
Once you’ve installed the Trymata Android app, follow the instructions below.
In your settings, find the “Build number”. The location will be a little different for every phone. Below is the location for some common Android phones
Once you’ve found the build number, tap on it 7 times to turn on Developer Options. (After a few taps, you’ll see a countdown showing how many taps left before you unlock the Developer Options.)
After tapping on Developer Options, you’ll see a lot of different settings that can be turned on. The only one you need to change is called“Show taps” or “Show touches” – find this setting and switch it on.
Make sure to always turn on “Show taps” before taking a Trymata test so that customers can see how you are interacting with their products.
While not performing Trymata tests, feel free to turn these settings back off.
You can leave Developer Options on and simply switch off the “Show taps” setting; or, you can turn off Developer Options entirely (you’ll see an on-off switch at the top of the Developer Options screen).
