    If you miss CaptureIT from the BB days, or just wanting an easy way to take a screenshot and don't mind using Home++ well this afternoon the new release includes snapshot. It captures great and the colors are excellent.

    It's weird though...the pictures captured have no file extension. I tried appending a .jpg, .tif, .png, but photoshop wouldn't open them.

    I take that back, adding a .png works

    Unfortunately, it only works for taking a screenshot of the home screens.

    Noticed the lack of screen shots beyond the home screen as well.

    I want to take screen shots of web browser and e-mail clients for QA and testing.

    Don't want to root my device and would prefer not to install SDKs and JDKs and connect the phone if I don't have to (my company would prefer I don't do that as well).

    Hopefully he updates the screenshot function to allow this in the future. The developer of Home++ is awesome; he's constantly adding and tweaking things. I wouldn't be surprised to see improved functionality for screenshots. The fact that he added it at all is a good sign.

    From what I have gathered is that the only way for them to add screen shots beyond the home screen is on a rooted device. Been that way for a long time. Maybe it will change in the future.
