How to take screenshots, with an app or your own code

Published by at

You know what's missing int Windows Phone? A simple way to take screenshots. Unlike the built in system on iOS, you'll need to unlock Step forward Jeff Wilcox, with his really simple screenshot solution for writing a screen capture application. just give it an interval of time and it’ll take screenshots every few seconds, storing the resulting image as a JPEG in isolated storage. This is useful for apps that need to be running on a real device, or if you need to capture transitions or difficult-to-reproduce actions.

You will need a developer unlocked device, and if you'd rather just grab an off-the-shelf application we can recommend Screen Capturer by Jerry Jiang, but if you want to get your hands dirty with code, this is a great starting point. Thanks, Jeff!
