    Beautiful and simple, this is Skype built especially for the iPad. Call, video call, or instant message anyone on Skype. Plus, if you add a little Skype Credit, call landines and mobiles at really low rates.

    Many people want to know how you backup Skype texting history, recorded voice and contacts. Now here’s a brief tutorial:

    You Need:

    » iPad
    » i-FunBox (Official download site: )
    » SQLite Database Viewer

    • Open iFunBox

    • Click “User Applications”, then “Skype”


    • Then copy “main.db” to PC or drag “main.db” to PC directly:


    • Using the main.db file select ‘messages’ from the ‘Table’ drop down menu and you will be able to see all of the messages currently on your iPad


    • Export your texting history, recorded voice or contacts to .csv:
    From the SQLite Database Browser’s File menu, choose Export> Table to CSV file. Save the resulting comma-delimited file, and open it using your spreadsheet of choice.


    • Done
