Lookback, the app testing feedback recording service for iOS devices, has acquired QuickCast, a company that makes a screen recording app for OS X. It’s also released new tools to record beta tester feedback on Android devices and Mac desktops.

QuickCast has been updated and renamed Lookback for Mac. It lets users record their screen, face and voice as they use apps and browse sites on their desktops, in order to deliver app testing feedback and bug reports to developers.

Lookback-for-Mac

The tool is compatible with Safari and Chrome, and uploads recordings automatically to Lookback’s site for companies to view and share them.

The all-new Android app offers similar functionality on phones and tablets. This complements Lookback’s original app for iOS. In addition, the Web interface has also been given a bit of a visual overhaul.

Lookback scored a $2.2 million seed investment last March. Apart from buying QuickCast, the company has also brought on board Mai­Li Hammargren, founder of Mutewatch and Tobias Ahlin, a designer previously at GitHub and Spotify.
