How To: Record Skype calls on your iPad

Its merely been a day since Skype for iPad was launched and users have already begun searching for a way to record their Skype calls using their iPad. While there are numerous Skype recording tools available on traditional computers, iOS users have found little joy. Until now that is.

Recording your Skype calls on your iPad is, in fact, an easy task. More of a ‘smart’ workaround than an out-and-out solution. To get started, you’ll need a good voice recording tool (Quick Voice seems to be the most recommended). After that, you have to launch Skype and make a call, as you normally would. Then comes the big trick: Switch away from Skype, launch your recorder and start recording (Keep in mind that nothing will be recorded before this point). This method is the most easiest and most convenient one out there as of today for an app that’s just released yesterday.

P.S. As is obvious by now, this method uses your device’s built-in microphone and speaker to capture the audio. There’s no actual Skype integration involved. For this very reason there is only audio recording available for now. We hope to crack a video recording solution for you soon. Till then try this and let us know of your experience in the comments section below.
