    Screen captures? Press the home button and sleep button simultaneously and it will copy whatever's on the screen at the time.

    I don't think this is possible for now unless there's an app out there that we don't know about which can do this..

    Actually that's a screen cast from his Mac, using the iPad environment...which I think can be done if you're a ios developer.

    I am not sure about that terry. He mentions that he is now able to do this with the ipad2 without jailbreak. The fact that he is mentioning the ipad2 makes me think that the solution might be related to the newest features introduced with it.

    Basically no need jailbreak and not a solution that could be done on ipad 1

    The screencast/ screen recording is done on Screenflow, that is for sure. What is interesting is how is he able to display his ipad screen on a window on the mac?

    That is the real question. How can you show your ipad screen on your mac? As well, whatever the solution, must be something that works on all ipad apps.

    Any ideas out there?

    Well maybe you're right. But to answer one of you're questions...how to show your iPad on your Mac...if you're an iOS app or a Mac app developer, you're able to show your iPhone or iPad on your Mac. It's a virtual environment to test apps. That's one way to do it. That's why I figured he was recording the screen cast from his Mac and not from his iPad.

    Ok after looking at it again, yes I'm positive he is recording this ON his Mac. And yes most likely using screen flow. And most likely he's using the iPad environment you have for app development unless screen flow has somehow added that function now.

    What I thought was the root question, and how I eneded up in this thread, is: can you record a screen cast of your iPad FROM your iPad. And I still haven't found that solution.

    Hi terry, yes he is totally using Screenflow to record his mac screen and on his screen he has an app or something displaying his ipad in realtime

    Pully I think you are right because he mentions that before he used to jailbreak his ipad 1 to be able to do these screencasts but now he doesn't have to with the ipad2.

    This makes me believe that indeed he is using the hdmi output. The thing i can't figure out is how to then connect your hdmi output to your mac. Not on a monitor or tv but instead to have it on a window on your mac so that you can use screenflow to record your screen...
