Over the past couple weeks, I’ve been getting a lot of requests to develop a Screenshot App for iPhone; and although I love the idea, the fact is, you don’t need a separate App to take Screenshots on your iPhone. There’s already a feature built-in the iOS that allows users to take Screenshots of their iPhone screen within seconds. It’s really quite simple.
All you have to do is, Press the Hold Button (Power Button) at the Top and the Home Button at the same time. That’s it. You’ll see a quick flash on your screen, indicating that you Screenshot was taken successfully.
The Screenshots are saved to your camera roll.
From there, you can Message, Email, Upload To iCloud, Share on Social Media, etc… the Screenshots.
As for a Screen Capture video, there aren’t any Apps for that yet. Right now, the only way you can create a Screen Capture Video for your iPhone is by running your Apps in the Xcode iOS Simulator. You’ll need a Mac OS X for installing Xcode. I’m not sure about this, but I’ve heard rumblings among the App Developer community that Apple is planning a version of Xcode for Windows. But that’s for another post.
At the moment, I’m not sure whether the iOS Library supports a Video Screen Capture App. I’ve had the idea for a while now, but nothing has materialized yet. The Screen Capture App is certainly in our pipeline and we plan on developing it once Apple makes those Libraries available for the iOS. Until then, the built-in Screen Capture feature of the iOS is your best bet.
Also, BEWARE of all the fake Apps on the iTunes App Store that market themselves as Video Screen Capture Apps. They’re lying. Those kinds of Apps are one of the many Apps specifically indented to dupe unsuspecting users of their hard earned money. Don’t fall into that trap.
