    On the free version, when you launch it you'll find "capture from notification." Check that. Just below is "capture delay." I set that to 1 second. Then exit the app. When you want to capture a screen drag the notification bar down and click on the "Screen Capture Shortcut" notification. After the delay period (1 second in my case) the screen will be captured and written to a folder in internal storage named "ScreenCapture." It appears that the donate version has an option to "capture on shake."

    I was hoping the age of those comments had something to do with it, as all the ones I saw were posted before the release of Froyo for the Captivate.

    Weaksauce.

    I just had the same thing happen to me. I somehow accidentally took a screen shot. The phone made the camera shutter sound and there was a screenshot in my gallery. I'm trying to find something somewhere explaining how it's done on purpose. I realize there are apps out there, but obviously it's built into the phone. I just want to know how it works.

    Hi. I've confirmed as well that you can, in fact, take a screenshot on a samsung captivate with button presses.
    I did it by accident. I was trying to exit an app by pressing the back button quickly. The phone made a shutter sound and the words "screen captured" popped up on the screen.
    I went to the gallery and found a new picture folder labeld, "screen capture".
    I haven't been able to do it again...
    I am running android 2.2.

    While I noted above that I'm using "Screen Capture Shortcut," today I accidentally took a screen shot WITHOUT using this app. I had started WeatherBug by accident. As other users of WeatherBug will know, it's not quick to start. I didn't want WeatherBug running so I began pressing "Back" to no avail EXCEPT I got this pop-up saying "Screen Captured" and a couple of images appeared in the "ScreenCapture" folder.

    I accidentally took three screen shots today while pressing the home button on my captivate. My phone was going slow and freezing so it must have thought I put the screen capture combination of keys in and they shoe up in my gallery under screen capture... I can't seemto repeat it though. I don't know how I did it, but I know it's possible.

    I was reading a text message just now, and when I pressed the home key, my phone froze. I pressed the back key and got no response, then the home key again with no response, then I tried locking my phone (I'm almost positive it was in that order). When it finally came to, it said something along the lines of "capturing screen shot", then it created a new folder in my images gallery called "ScreenCapture" with an image of my phone screen when I was in my text conversation. Maybe it takes a combination of a frozen phone and button mashing to make it work.. :p That being said, I haven't been able to duplicate it.

    (I updated to 2.2 about a month ago, and I don't have any screen capture apps installed.)

    Few questions:

    1) Are you updated to 2.2?
    2) Are you rooted?
    3) Does using the QR code work?

    Hopefully one of these works for you. If not, I'll see if I can grab the .apk for you.
