Hey guys,

I wrote a screen capture app that works for my Atrix since I couldn't find one that worked that was on the market. Here is the first version so I am looking for suggestions/bugs/improvements, etc.

I've only tested it on the atrix because that is the only phone I have, but if you guys could test it on other phones and let me know if it works or not on them, then that would be great.

Edit: Finally posting a new version. *Should* address most of the issues/requests I've seen unless I forgot something. Still haven't had a chance to test on any other devices but it will actually display errors now so I can see why the devices are failing.

Version:
0.6 - Fixed some bugs, screenshots should show up right away in gallery now, added an option to shutdown the services after grabbing the screenshot.
0.8 - Fixed shake sensor bug, added option to invert colors to fix colors for some devices, and service should stay on after reboots.
0.85 - Fixes for some crash reports. Better support for other devices.

Also, I finally added the app to market for those who want to get automatic app updates. I'll still post newest versions here for those that prefer to download from xda.

Market link

update: I haven't had time to work on the app at all lately so if anybody wants the source to fix any bugs or improvements then you can get it from https://bitbucket.org/mindphaze/screen-grabber

so, what was the roadblock that was impeding capturing the screen with the actual programs? is it something tegra based? or was it something way easy? where did you find the information needed to make this?

Nice app. After the app takes a screenshot, does it save to gallery b/c I can't find it for some reason.
