ZonaSnap screen capture utility updated to v2.0.5

By Michelle Haag on 1 Feb 2011 05:02 pm EST

ZonaSnap is one of my favorite and most frequently used BlackBerry applications. This simple app allows you to easily take screenshots and share them in a variety of ways. ZonaSnap, developed by Javiergv of ZonaBlackBerry, was recently updated to v2.0.5 and there are quite a few changes that are worth mentioning. See the full list of features below. The full version of ZonaSnap costs $1.99 but there is a free 7 day trial available. At the end of the trial the app still functions, however your screenshots will be watermarked.

  • Zonasnap added as an menu item with options to remove.
  • Send snap of your screen without saving straight from the screen as email, to Photobucket, Twitter, BlackBerry Messenger Contact or simply save to SD card under your pictures folder.
  • Can be added as a convenience key.
  • When used from the menu it gives you a preview of your screen shot.
  • Files can be saved as jpg or png format.
  • After the capture is sent to Photobucket, you will receive a notification in a window reporting that the image code has been received and it has been inserted into Memopad.
  • Short vibration to let you know the snap has been taken with option to remove this alert.
  • Options for add a Water Mark and rotate it, add Opacity, Scale and Align into the Capture, this Water Mark can be selected from the SD Card pictures.
  • Full 7days Trial. After the expired will be available all the main options except the selection of the watermark, will be set a default water mark in the capture.
  • Options to change the quality of the capture in the format jpg.
  • Must enable all permissions requested by the application.
  • Storm users should disable the compatibility mode.
  • We have detected problems with the Water Mark in some Non Official OS.

ZonaSnap screen capture utility updated to v2.0.5


Hi phishgirl3, thanks for the post about the Update.. could you please contact us?

ZonaSnap Developer

The picture quality isn't so hot on this. I hate myself for deleting Captureit. There hasn't been a screen capture app like it.

This version let you choose from 30 to 100% the picture quality in JPG format, you can also choose PNG format if you prefer.. and many other things old apps do not do.

So sad... This was almost the only free app to make screen captures without any watermark. And now it costs $2 when most of this kind of apps only costs $1.
I'll keep my free version, maybe test the updated one to see how ugly the watermark is, but I think I'll eventually download CaptureIt again.
Anyway, screen capture should be a built-in feature for a smartphone.

@johnpaul12 : I won't post it here or else my comment could be deleted, but there's an new OTA link for CaptureIt somewhere in the CrackBerry forum ;) PM me on the forum if you can't find it.

Google "zonasnap" & scroll down to the mobihand link for the free ZonaSnap which is watermark free & has good quality photos. You can email, delete, save or photobucket the picture, way worth not upgrading to that.

I completely agree with everyone that I have had this app on almost all my blackberrys dating back to the 8900 curve and its been free with no watermark. I look at other peoples apps with watermarks and I say "oh that is so tacky" never will I update my zonasnap and I also hope that they do not remove the free one from online services, however I believe its only a matter of time before they do.

I guess eventually I will have to try capture it and see what that is about.

BBSAK is your best friend. Just back it up and make a .jad or just install the .cod later. You will never have to worry about a server shutting down then.

This is one good app! totally worth it. i've been using it since i had my BB 8310 now on my torch works flawlessly

Ok when the hell will there be an option to send to Facebook? Main reason I dont buy any of these apps :S

I have used zona for a long time, and I still use it but it stopped sending links to my memopad. In addition to sending you an email link, after posting to Photobucket, it would also send a link to Memopad that you could use to copy and paste in different forums. Maybe PB changed something on their end to cause it not to do that anymore, but I miss that feature.

I miss that option too, I just bought this new version which states that it will send an IMG code to your clipboard, but it doesn't. I would like to know how to get that option to work.

Hi, I'm checking this. Because the Popup is recieved in Some OS and BlackBerry Models and not in others. Probably the bug belong to the OS. Can you please tell me your OS, BlackBerry Model and if your OS is Official or not?

QuickLaunch is $4-5 and will do this and on certain models will also disable your camera shutter sound, and it lets you create extremely handy shortcuts to a wide variety of actions you most likely do multiple times on your BlackBerry everyday.


I am not affiliated with QuickLaunch, other than the fact that I've been using it for, must be, years now and wouldn't go without it. When I get a new device and QL has not yet been installed, I press my left convenience key to launch it and just stare and freeze when it doesn't load amd I have to go back to the manual way of composing SMS' to specific people or loading apps from within apps without going back to the home screen and finding the icon.


I think this is the best app on this style, it have many funtion that other app dosen't have it and also i think that it is very easy to use and with a couple step you can send some picture by email, twitter and bbmsn, it is really easy and fast. I recommend this app 100%
