Does anyone know how to take screen shots with the 4.0???
any help would be much appreciated thanx
Screen shot apps generally require rooting.
Check out This Thread tcat007 says Screen Capture Shortcut works on the SGP
Other threads you might want to check out:
http://androidforums.com/samsung-mesmerize/315638-screenshots.html several people talk about pressing Back+Power on a Samsung Mesmerize (but it looks like a Galaxy Tab may not support it so the SGP may not either)
Also, dixie_boysles states that "ShootMe" works without rooting, but again this is on a Mesmerize
http://androidforums.com/samsung-admire/463688-how-take-screenshot.html DealerMan suggests going down the SDK route and taking snapsots while connected via USB, while ethood1999 suggests using "No Root Screenshot It" which requires a desktop app to set it up via USB but after that can make screenshots without being connected
As I don't yet own an SGP, I haven't been able to try any of these myself tcat007 hasn't said anything about the Back+Power idea but I'd try that first.
Screen Capture Shortcut Free
You pull down the notification "curtain" and there's the Screen Capture "activator" . It will take screen shots from any app that lets you get to the notification bar. NetFlix, for example, won't.
The paid version (or Donate Version)- as they call it) will let you trigger the capture via "shake". Files get saved to a folder on the internal memory called Screen Capture
I also vote for Screen Capture Shortcut
AirDroid is also a posible solution.
Just found out the button combination
Press the Home and Back buttons simultaneously and the screen capture will go into a folder called ScreenCapture (same as screen Capture Shortcut). You get the camera shutter sound and a message at the bottom of the screen so you know it's been made.
