Convert Web Page with Dynamic Content to Image or PDF

    I've installed a number of Web to PDF and Web Snapshot type apps, looking for one that will generate either an image or, preferably, a PDF snapshot of a web page as it appears in my browser at the moment I create the snapshot.

    So far, I haven't found any apps that work this way - everything seems to go back and retrieve the page from the original URL, which means that the generated image or PDF file doesn't look exactly like the web page I was looking at - all dynamic content or dynamic changes that I've made to the page are 'lost'.

    Are there any such apps that will do what I'm looking for?

    Use a Samsung Note.

    Thanks for the tip, but that's out of the question. I need a solution that isn't tied to a specific device. I'm looking, specifically, for a solution that will work on the 10.1" Samsung Galaxy Tab and the Toshiba Thrive.

    I'm not going to purchase a new device just to get this functionality.

    I believe that pressing home and power buttons together will achieve what you're after on some other devices, don't know how on those you've mentioned, but surely such useful function must still be available even with stuff designed for 3.0 +

    I do know how to take a screenshot on these devices, but that's also not exactly what I want - I don't want the bottom bar in the image. I need just the web page, as it looks in my browser, without anything else surrounding it.

    I'm in control of the web page, by the way - it's an online app that can be used to generate a bid for a job. I need to convert that bid, with dynamic content, into a PDF or image, without any of the surrounding Android UI elements.

    Thanks again for the help, btw.
