    What app does everyone use for capturing screen shots for posting in here? I know there are several, just wondered what everyone uses.

    Thanks!

    I think ShootMe and drocap2 are the most popular.

    drocap2 and (lol ;)) adb (edit: via the Android SDK's) ddms.bat device screen capture function) for those so-inclined. :p

    Can any of these screen shot apps be used to post on a computer.

    I upload mine to Picasa (Google), then post them from there. You can upload them here, but you are limited to a smaller pic size tho. There are other free photo sites you can upload to, then grab the url and post them here.

    You mean from a computer? If so, then yes, the ddms.bat (Dalvik Debug Monitor) utility runs from the Android SDK (PC, Mac, Linux).

    I mis-spoke earlier when I said "adb"...meant ("SDK") ;).

    If you've got the Android SDK installed, you can run the ddms.bat script to invoke the utility. Then, after you've connected your phone via USB cable, there's a "Device" menu item with a "Screen capture" function. Pretty cool.

    Cheers!

    The Android SDK (ddms) is the only way to grab screenshots w/o being rooted.

    edit: I'm sure you meant for the Droid X too...(not trying to be contrary here :)).

    Actually, on some phones, you apparently can take screen shots without being rooted. I (re-)searched this a couple of weeks back...bizarrely, its true (but I don't think it is for the X).

    "Screenshot It" (free trial and paid version available), "Screen Capture - No Rooting 2.2" (requires adb manipulation of a library file on your phone :eek:), "Screen Capture Shortcut" (Galaxy S and Tab only). There's probably more too...

    Cheers!

    Yes, I meant on the DX. (I assumed that was still the case.) :D

    Yeah, I'd be very surprised that any of these apps would work on the X, but I haven't personally tried any of them. I am curious as to to what makes some of them workable on the other phones though...maybe its the library or hardware permissions that allow this...dunno.
