How to take screenshots on Android?

Android screenshot on how
We all get to know that you can take screenshots easily by pressing the power and home buttons together.Then you can locate the current screen saved under Camera Roll.Unlike iPhone,Most Android phone doesn't support to take screen directly,expect for the Android smartphone which runs on Android 4.0 offering a built-in way to take a good screenshot.But we have to get other ideas if you’re still using an older version of the Android operating system without rooting your phone.

1 Take  Screenshot with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
It is easy to take screenshot if you’re using Android 4.0 or later. What you have to do is to press and hold the Volume Down and Power buttons at the same time. Then,you’ll see an animation on the screen, which means the screen photo was saved. Android will save the image to your Gallery. You can go to the Gallery app and tap Screenshots to view and share your screenshot.
2 Android SDK
You can take a screenshot on any Android device using Google’s Android SDK(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_development_kit). After you’ve set up the Android SDK, all you have to do is connect your Android phone or tablet to your computer with its USB cable and fire up the SDK.This isn’t the most user-friendly application to set up, but it’s easy to use once you’ve set it up. You can visit this page http://www.addictivetips.com/mobile/what-is-adb-and-how-to-install-it-android/  for the specific guidelines.

3 Screenshot Apps at Google Play Store
As we know there are thousands of Apps at Google Play Store.Of course there are some about screenshot apps for you.For example, Samsung Galaxy S, Galaxy Tab, and Galaxy S II (pre-ICS) users can use Screen Capture Shortcut Free to capture a screenshot without rooting their phones.Another example of a device-specific app is AndroSS, which can take screen images on Android without root access on Tegra devices. If you’re not sure whether a device-specific app exists for your device, search the Google Play Store and see.

4 Root your Android Smartphone
As someone guessed that it could be a security problem since Android doesn't allow apps to view the screen – For example, a malicious app could spy on your online banking sessions.There’s no permission apps can request to take snapshots of your screen.So you’ll need to root your Android to give an app permission to view your screen. After rooting your Android, you can install one of the many screen snapshot applications that require root from Google Play Store.There are many options to choose from. Screenshot UX Trial is a free app that worked for me. You can take a screenshot in a variety of ways, including shaking your device, tapping a notification, or setting a delay. Other apps have similar features.
