A few days ago, Doug and I were discussing how we were going to take screenshots on the applications we review, once we had upgraded to firmware 2.0. In the past, we used Capture…an application available through Installer on our jailbroken iPhones. However, firmware 2.0 has not been jailbroke yet, so we could no longer use Capture. Well, no worries, Apple has actually added the ability to take screenshots into the 2.0 firmware! To take a screenshot (a picture of what is on your iPhone’s screen), just quickly press and release your Home Button and Power Button at the same time. The screen will flash white, indicating that a screenshot has been taken. The screenshot is added your iPhone’s Camera Roll. To view the screenshot, select the Photos option on your SpringBoard and then Camera Roll. What is really sweet is that the screenshots are saved as .PNG files. Which means I do not have to covert them before uploading them to AppleiPhoneSchool.com! Very nice!
Note: If you are looking for information on how to take screenshots of your lock screen. Please see these two posts; How to take screenshots of lock screen (firmware 2.0-2.1) and How to take screenshots of lock screen (firmware 2.2).
