Screenshot apps for BlackBerry are nothing less than abundant. There are various ones, both free and paid, and all get the job done. Where we're partial however is one that is "Crack" branded and sports a badass CB logo. CrackShot does just that -- it's the CrackBerry of screenshot apps -- and we love it. CrackShot has a few different options for grabbing the screen on your BlackBerry. There is a single CrackShot mode that can be accessed from your device menu or via the App Switcher after "arming" the app. Fire off your shot and the CB logo pops onto the device, cracks your screen and grabs your capture -- awesome.

Need to take more than one shot? Use the Multi CrackShot and go on a snapping spree, then disable it again when you're done. CrackShot also puts a sweet CrackBerry watermark on your image so you can show your love of this sweet application. It may sound a bit confusing, but it's all super simple when you get going. There are a few options to change the image format, vibration and help popups as well. Check out the video above for a look at CrackShot in action, then hit the link below to download and for more discussion. If you're looking for simple, no watermark screenshot app, be sure to check out QuickShot (it's the bones of CrackShot) as well. 

Note: CrackShot is currently avaialbe for OS 5 and higher.  It's also still in beta, so should you find any bugs be sure to swing by the forums and let us know.

Many thanks to LSphone for the hard work on this one!!

Sometimes I wish you were banned from the internet all together.

I feel like such a noob, but when I click on the OTA download, my computer won't put it on my phone , it just tries to open it ? what do I do?

PS< just answered my own post. I just loaded it from the mobile CB, DOH! sorry crackberry nation for the dumb@ss question!

Kevin Michaluk

Love it...looks sooooo coool lol...another great feature

Dafunkhead

I do not see why the CB watermark needs to be on the image...love CB and all for plugging it & all but defeats the purpose when the watermark obscures a part of the captured image. Is there a way to use CS without the watermark?

I also don't like watermarks on my screen shots, so I use Screen Grabbber, it's free and you can send your screen shots via BBM. Here's a link: http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/23993

quick question guys and gurls: what are some possible uses of such an app? I'm not trying to be an @ss, just can't think of a real world use for it

etlahrs

Best scenario I have used is when you get an error in an app, the developer may want to see what the error was. An easy way to show them what happened without having to try explaining it.

murialita

It's very useful when writing instructions on how to do something to actually have screen shots. This way people can read through them and know what to expect, or easily see what step they are on.

I'm still gonna stick with my old CaptureIt app. Not as flashy, but it's free, gets the job done, and no watermarks. Or if I happen to have the phone hooked up to the computer, BBSAK works too. Still, I like the "cracking" of the screen!

xazizx88

same here, CaptureIt FTW, still the smashing of the screen is cool :D

TIMSHULL

Ya me either but wth would you take a pic of your screen ???

diego.roscetti

Loving this app. So simple and easy to use. Much better than the other ones out there. Love how you can keep the "Multi" option running. Just as simple as holding down the menu key and viola.

Great app Crackberry

knowledge_6

haha did you guys make the watermark so you can use this app for your blog posts? since your images got STOLEN----http://crackberry.com/hey-vodafone-get-your-own-screen-shots

RoseBud68

Great app. Very simple to use & free is even better.

rkopsie

Whoa!.. How he heck did you get a red notification icon on the Twitter app icon?.. Mine has never ever shown that before!!!

RoseBud68

Mine does the same thing, which version are you running?

stormsurvivor

Didn't see anything about the capability to send the screens via email. QuickLaunch does that and doesn't lose that Meg of app memory this one requires. No watermark to deal with either.

phone9

Well, it's a bit of fun for CrackBerry fans

kazn3r

crackshot? not sure about the name.

igotberryfever

so nobody saw he was using a att bold 9900 with H+

Biulet

I use CaptureIt... Same thing without the CB logo on the captures.

Graheem

Yep, CaptureIt here too, on my 9900. We don't need NO STINKING WATERMARKS!

Kennedy.L

Adam you do a great job with CrackBerry! Great posts and videos. No offense to your coworkers but I like your work the most.

mrskittens

I am on both sides of the fence:

"QuickLaunch does that and doesn't lose that Meg of app memory this one requires."

and:

"Well, it's a bit of fun for CrackBerry fans"

Therefore I will keep it unless memory becomes an issue. It is cute :)

ironwiller

hey there.
it seems nice on video but 1,2 MB for a simple snapshot app..come on... you re killing the previous bb models. i have 9700 and i would not download it because of that..please fix the size of it. others snapshots doesnt take more than 100-150kb..ty

phone9

The download size could be reduced by a couple of tricks, but it would still be as large in memory on the phone after unpacking. Unless the graphics are cut down to boringness or BB gets the ability to rotate images on the fly, it'll be big.

ryanwilyamz

I just downloaded it to my 9930. Works like a charm! Great application.

jorgeblackapr

Do I see ATT on the Bold screen with H+? if thats the case, wich Bold 9900 or 9930 is the one who works on att H+ network?

shrek325

I love this app- thanks CB!

swaps1986

The download link does not seem to be working. Any clue where could I download it?

xMatter

placroix

Thanks
