    it would be
    but, really
    how hard is it to take your camera, any camera, and record it
    i know this would be easier, but would take a lot of battery life, and memory

    it would look WAAAY nicer.
    who cares if it takes more battery power? just plug in your iPod during the time you want to make the tutorial.

    seriously, I would pay $$ for an app like this (i hate paying for stuff unless its like absolutly necessary like enigmo, labarynth, crash nitro kart, and iCopter =P)

    You could use a VNC Viewer and veency on your iPod touch and use your computer to screen record it. But it would be horribly laggy.

    Oh well, but it probably won't be made. Or at least for a while.

    someone should fix that =D
    lol thats why I made this thread. Becasue there were a few threads about this a while ago (but like when 1.1.x was out) and nothing was done.

    Hopefully now, someone will take on this project

    its been discussed after 2.x was released
    the only thing is finding the code that triggers a screenshot
    finding this is the hard part, everything else would be easy

    Imagine taking 24 - 30 screen shots per second. Now imagine also recording sound. Now add to that, what you are currently doing adding to what you are recording. How much power, and I don't mean Battery power, I mean Processing power. How much would that take? Its hard enough to create a screen recording app on the PC itself. There are barely any out there. And they're not cheap. Jing, the only free one, does it only in Flash. And it took quite long to build. Better to have something that records it from your computer, where it can do the capturing while your device is free to do what it needs.
