    (Root Users only of course, unless your using Home++)

    I think I have tested them all out and I like "drocap2 for root users" the best; "Screenshot It" is nice but I can't stand the icon.

    Here are both the "Screenshot It' and "drocap2 for root users" icons in the status bar:

    1. "Screenshot It" uses a green Android bot


    2. "drocap2 for root users" uses a camera image


    Which Screenshot App do you use?

    i like "shootme" all you do is turn on and shake or yell and it automatically takes a screen cap and puts it in its own folder for easy finding

    I like shootme the best. It just works. I tried the other 2 mentioned, but prefer shootme. Screen shots was the biggest reason I finally rooted my phone. :D

    The ability to take screenshots is what makes me think of rooting my original Droid. Can you actually take screenshot of any screen, from any application, or are there some limitations? And--any problems with Froyo 2.2?

    Well, so far I can take screen shots of any screen. I have not tried to take one while playing a movie, only still things. I have taken shots of maps while navigating to send to someone without GPS so they knew where something was. However, since it was on shake to take the pic, I wouldn't leave the screen capture app on while driving down a bumpy road with GPS on or it might be taking pics in the background.

    I rooted after I got 2.2 and the update. I was waiting so that I didn't have a problem with an OTA update not getting in or being in a loop to update. I followed easy instructions from another forum.

    do you guys mean the little bitty orange one? (actual the color changes from cyan to orange depending on whether it is AM or PM) if so that is "Clock Droid Pro"

    If you Root I highly recommend utilizing the 1-click root found here:


    That way you can Root without voiding your warranty (if your still under warranty)

    Also I have two online galleries solely devoted to pictures and screenshots that I take with my Nexus One, you might find them interesting to see some more screenshots I have taken:

    old:NexuSix (photography taken with Google Nexus One)
    (Photographs and screenshots)

    new: NexuSix.org
    (the new one is predominately screenshots but that will change)

    My fave used to be Shootme but now I use the one built into MIUI: press Vol down + Menu

    I use ShootMe because it also captures screenvideo. Albeit at only 10 frames per second, but it's nice for simple tutorials. I chose it for that feature, but to be honest, I don't know whether the other screenshot apps support video capture of the screen.

    Where can I find this "shootme" app at? It is nowhere to be found in the marketplace.

    I believe the developer pulled it from the Market.
