    This might have been discussed many times, so I make no apology,in fact I too may have posted about it befor, but here goes anyway.

    Taking screenshots with ipad during skype calls.

    Yes it's a case of pressing power and home screen buttons at the same time, using two hands trying not to wobble, how can this be achieved with a modicum of success?

    If you want to hold your iPad with one hand, enable Assisitve Touch on Settings - General - Accessibility before the call. A small, dark, transparent button will appear and slide to one to sides of your iPad. When you intend to take a screenshot, tap the button.

    I have that, but after touching the ipad icon, ah, I did it, thanks, can't wait for skype again later.

    Coincidently, my ipad pinged at 6.30am, my daughter in the Middle East said "skype?" So I started skype with my wife still fast asleep, and our daughter was saying "wake up mum, happy Easter" . How's that for an unexpected wake up call

    Not sure why this was needed. How steady you hold the iPad during a Skype call is not going to affect the image of your daughter when you capture it. Only the smaller image of yourself.

    Of course, that might be the point.

    This new (to me) floating button to create a screen capture works a treat with the large incoming picture captured so easily.

    An example is that we watched our grand daughter open an Easter egg via Skype from her home miles away, as as she did it, I captured screen shots. Then as soon as the Skype call ended, via Facebook's Messenger, I sent those pics to our grand daughters mummy (our daughter) and they were much appreciated.

    So all in all, one good and worthwhile tip.Thanks again.
