Hello, I am wondering what the best way to record my ipad mini screen while I use it. I was wondering what the Experts think, as the only way I know is to hold a camera up to the screen, which is not the best of quality. I am wondering if you guys know of any apps or something. Thanks Experts!

I haven't tried it, but according to:  http://www.imore.com/how-to-take-screenshot-ipad

Also: http://www.wikihow.com/Take-a-Screenshot-With-an-iPad

To take a screenshot with your iPad, simply press the Home and Sleep/Wake (Power) buttons at the same time. If you nail it, the screen will flash and you'll hear the same camera shutter sound that's made when you're taking a photo.

To access and share your screenshots go to Photos and open the Camera Roll.

Currently, I'm using a desktop app call acethinker ipad screen recorder that mirrors my iPad screen to the computer and use its screen recording function to make videos. It's not that direct, but it works.
