Screenshots With Ice Cream Sandwich
So, for most Droid users, taking a screenshot on their phone has not been possible without rooting your Droid. For the average user, this is just not practical, but taking a screenshot is actually a useful feature. Motorola has been rolling out the update for some of its devices and more are on the way. If you have not received your update yet, be patient, it’s coming. The good news is, that taking a screenshot is now an available feature.
Simply press the Volume “-” and Power/Sleep button simultaneously and hold them for a brief second and a screenshot will be taken. You will see it displayed in your notification bar as it is being saved to your phone. You can now go to “My Gallery” and view it, share it, etc.
That’s it. Pretty simple huh?
For those of you who are still on an older version of Android, or your device will not be receiving the update. There are alternatives. Like I said earlier, you can root your device, but that may not be something you want to do. There are also apps that will allow you to take screenshots. One of them is a paid app on the Google Play store called “Screenshot It”. There may be others, but I have heard good reviews about this one.
