Take an iPad Screenshot

Thursday, April 19th, 2012 by | Filed Under: iOS

Okay, big day – you’ve finally beaten Angry Birds, with three stars on all the levels, and you want to show off. So, what’re you going to do? Carry your iPad around with you everywhere and never play the game again?

No! You take a screenshot so you can post it and e-mail it to everyone!

Here’s how:

First, make sure your iPad is on the screen you want to capture. Now click and hold the Home button button and press the top button on your iPad. You have to be pretty nimble, otherwise you might get sent back to the home screen or put your iPad to sleep. 

If done correctly, however, you’ll hear a camera noise and the screen will flash.

Now simply go into your Photos. You should see your screenshot, and from there you can share or e-mail it.

    Great tip! It will be a great help capturing web pages also. I use springpad for capturing web pages but some times I’m just wanting the picture. After you press the home button and hold, the trick is to click the top button quickly and let go otherwise it won’t work. thanks Steve I love this tip.

    Thanks Andrew.
