Capturing your screen could be really important at times , whether its taking screenshots from a video or taking game screenshots to brag your achievements or reporting app crashes to support forums . At times it could be also useful to take screenshots of your homescreens to remember the layout before a factory data reset in avoidable circumstances .
Previously there were only a couple of ways to take screenshots of phone screen shots which were complicated and had several limitations , one of them being the Android SDK where you need to connect your phone to PC everytime you need to take a screenshot , root access being the main cause behind these limitation . But as rooting became popular many android apps which made use of root access became popular . One of them is Drocap2 which offers functionalities missing in apps made for non-rooted device .
DroCap is powerful but simple app which lets you perform your task with ease , DroCap2 comes with three modes :
- Shake Trigger : This offers screen capture when you shake your device , no hassles of buttons or timers.
- Timer trigger : An easy way to capture your screen , if you are afraid to throw your device while shaking it .
- Notification Trigger : Slide down the drawer and just tap the drocap2 trigger notification , a screenshot is created instantly
Save screen captures in “jpg” or “png” format by changing the options in preference (Prefs) menu , togglesound tick effects , change the default folder name which is held on the memory card . Also change the filename prefix ex: name it as “screenshotDROCAP2″-12Jan-xxx.jpg . The application can also register a notification on startup which automatically which can be toggled from the Prefs menu .
Once you have set your preferences leave the app by pressing home button and start capturing screenshots by the method selected .[learn_more caption="Android Market description"]Screen Capture Utility.
