Android screen grab

I needed to publish an Android app for one of our clients today. Screenshots of the app is required for publishing.

To do it, extremely simple.

  • Get application onto testing Android device
  • Connect Android device to computer, make sure device’s debug mode is enabled.
  • From the computer, start the DDMS program that’s shipped with the Android SDK
  • From DDMS, highlight the connected Android device, and go to menu “Device” - “Screen capture”

Not too hard. Have to say Apple’s native screen capture feature on iOS devices is a lot simpler.
