Sim Genie Overview

Unlock the simulator’s hidden power-ups
Xcode’s simulator is a powerful tool able to do so much more than just Build & Run … if you know its secrets. Sim Genie lives in your Mac's menu bar granting you access to a treasure trove of productivity-boosters you probably didn't think were possible.

At Your Command
Trigger the last Sim Genie action you took (like opening a deep link) with Sim Genie’s Quick Repeat hotkey, making debugging a breeze.
(Oh, and of course there’s another hotkey you can set to delete derived data. Because, Xcode.)

Record the Sim
Grab marketing-ready screen recordings right from the simulator.
Plus you can one-click restore an app's data from a snapshot you saved off instead of having to re-create staged marketing data every time.

Look Your Best
Of course, marketing videos and screenshots wouldn’t be complete without that perfect status bar. Apply status bars without adding custom code, or needing real hardware.
