Available In: Cydia       Price: Free

How to Take Screenshots

I get a lot of questions from people asking how we take our screenshots. There are actually a few ways to take screenshots…I have used all of them (sometimes all of them to take screenshots for one post)! Below are some of the options.

The Dock application comes with a screenshot feature. A lot of people miss it because the screenshot icon is grayed out. To take a screenshot with Dock you just bring up the screen you would like to take a screenshot of and then open the Starbust that Dock puts in the lower right corner of your iPhone. [Read more…]
