    For rooted devices you download an app from the market.

    The quick way to take a screenshot of an Android phone is to hold down the power button and radio the home button at the same time.

    No need. The SDK method is the same, with the only difference being that your phone has to be plugged into your computer (but you have to do that anyway with ScreenShotIt every time you reboot your device), and it's free!

    It really depends on the phone. What model are you using?

    I know not many of us are using ICS yet, but it is standard in 4.0. You press power and volume down and hold for about a second. You can even take screenshots of your lock screen.

    That is a difference though. You have to be plugged in to your PC with SDK. You dont have to be with screenshotIt.

    Yup this worked for me too! Using a Galaxy Wonder; just in case there is someone like me who knows almost nothing :D, the picture is saved in gallery, under screen shots...

    What do you mean by "radio the home button?"

    It worked for my HTC one that I got yesterday!
    Held down the power button and tapped the home button.

    I just did a screen capture on my Kyocera Hydro -- by accident. Now I'm trying to figure out what I did. I believe it involved the power button, but none of the above suggestions works. (I don't have any app for this installed.) I've been trying all sorts of random stuff but so far no luck. (Can't believe this isn't documented anywhere, not even in the obsessively detailed 189 page user guide for this phone.) Anybody have any ideas? Thanks!

    Oops, sorry. I didn't read carefully above. (Of course, the one post I didn't read was the one that worked for me.) Ignore the above! Thanks!

    I am 80 so please bear with me. I have a Samsung GT-S5830i. In my gallery is a photo which appears to have got on to the phone from an email. I want to delete that picture from the phone "gallery" but every time I select the picture, the "delete" instruction vanishes and as a result the picture remains. any ideas please, I took the phone into O2 but they could not suss out how to get rid of the picture. kindest regards Jeff P

    I have a ROOTED UMI X2 running Android 4.2.1. None of the key press methods of screenshot do anything. I downloaded a few apps all of which work but they do something strange: they take a screenshot of some previously visited screen and not the one I am sat on when the shot is taken.
    Thoughts?
