This past month I had asked if a on device screenshot utility was possible for the BlackBerry. Neil of DevBerry.com answered the question by stating that in OS 4.3 there is a handle for such a thing but nobody had implemented its use yet.
Well I guess the developers of SnapScreen, VirtualViews, decided to prove Neil right. These are the same guys that came up with BerryIcons and Imagewallet back in the day. The only caveat is that the application is only available for devices running OS 4.3+. That means only BlackBerry 8110 & 8120 devices need apply. The application simply adds a menu option to every menu that lets you take a screenshot and store it to your SD card or memory.
From their website:
Take an on device screenshot of your BlackBerry with SnapScreen!
There are two ways to use SnapScreen:
1. System wide menu option
2. Activation via a convenience key
- When you are viewing a screen you want to save, select SnapScreen from the menu or push a convenience key.
- SnapScreen will show a preview of the screen with a thin red border around it and ask you if you want to save it.
- SnapScreen will save the current screen in .jpg format on the SD card if you have one inserted or to internal memory.
- The images are saved at high quality and are typically around 20k each.
- You can use the Media Application to view the pictures or compose an email and attach a screenshot.
Pretty cool stuff I have to say. You can pick up SnapScreen at the BerryReview store for $4.99.
