ScreenShot updated to 2.0 - free version now available!

One of most important tools I use is a screen capturing application. When reviewing applications, it’s important to realize that the phrase, “a picture is worth a thousand words”, really does hold value. It’s one thing to talk about an application; it’s another to be able to view its images. Not only that, but it’s good to have images as proof in certain situations, or to even help with troubleshooting.

S4BB recently announced that version 2.0 now brings a free version of ScreenShot, on top of the already existing full version. ScreenShot supports the following image formats: JPG, GIF, BMP, GIF, TIFF, PNG and WBMP. One feature I like is the ability to set a delay, enabling you to capture hard to get shots (this is available in the full version only). Main features for both versions include:

  • Screen shot can be viewed right after it was taken
  • Screen shot can be sent out by email conveniently after it is taken
  • Camera shutter sound
  • 1 click image capture

The full version also allows you to change the shutter sound, modify the file name and select the image format. The full version typically goes for $4.99, but it’s on sale for $2.49 until July 22nd at the CrackBerry App Store. Funny, BlackBerry App World has the same application on sale for $4.99 from $9.99, go CrackBerry!

Neither one let's you capture a screen shot of camera views. I was hoping this would be a work around of the annoying camera sound.

I just installed the latest Captureit (version 1.4) on my 9700 and it allowed me to screen capture my camera view. Quality not the greatest but it does the job. Downside is also has blue square with camera in middle and other icons. Thanks for the idea.

The app QuickLaunch also has a built in screen capture that does the same thing. I had CaptureIt as well but deleted it once QuickLaunch added it to its app.
