at this point in time I dont think its possible to prevent the user from taking a screenshot.

You can make it harder for a user to screen shot an answer by only showing the answer when the user touches the screen (like snapchat does). When the user tries to take a screenshot they have to take their finger off the screen which makes the image go away. Its still easy to capture a screenshot though, but its better to make it harder than to not do anything at all I guess

This would be your best option...

thanks for the answer

This is only restricted by the OS so I hope Apple (someday) allows us to disable that feature in iOS.

lets cross fingers then
