    As you can see in my info I have the Optimus M, and there are quite a few apps for taking screenshots so I don't know which one to get. Which app do you guys use on your phones, and recommend is best for taking screenshots on mine?

    The shake to snap feature is the best.

    ShootMe has this feature also but, I think you have to be rooted to use any screen shot app.
     

  9. I use this app too. It says you need to be rooted but I'm not and it works fine.

    Why do you like it better? I've never used screenshot but, I know shootme can do some weird stuff with colors, brightness, etc. sometimes. I might have to give it a 'shot'.

    Apologies - should have mentioned that I really haven't used ShootMe all that much - but do like Screenshot by Kastorsoft cus - low space required, it's free and very user-friendly. Also trying Screen Shot It by Esther Kim now and like that as well.

    When I first open ShootMe - gives sort of black frame screen with green(hide) and red(quit) button selection, then you just shake from there. (lol at first I was like, ok what am I supposed to do from here??) That's pretty basic and it works pretty good, tho I didn't view pic yet and rather not shake phone too much?

    Please try Screen Shot by Kastorsoft and let us know your opinion on differences (think you'd like it). Thanx :)

    I used Shootme for a while, and liked it. There really isn't a problem with shaking your phone, so don't worry about that. When you get the initial screen, just click the hide button. It'll disappear and you can go about your business; get up what ever it is you want in your screen shot and then shake. Once you've gotten your screen shots, go ahead and open the app again and select quit. I don't have it anymore, 'cause it's not on the market, and I'm using the long press power button screen shot ability in the CM ROM's. However, I don't like that the pictures taken with that are png's rather than jpg's.

    Thanks for suggestion - I had no idea and good to know. Also, APlus several weeks ago had a link for ShootMe in a thread. I'll see if I can find it. Screenshots is pretty good also if you want to try that.

    Yeah, that's fine with me, It's not my app. Although, I can't guarantee how long I'll keep it in my dropbox. Also, thanks for the reply.
