Hi. Nice app. But I am having a problem. Most of the time, only a white border will appear around my screen, but no screenshot was taken. I had to close/reopen app, or try numerous times.

Android 7.1.2, OnePlus One

Just to confirm, this worked perfectly on my Huawei Mate 9 running Android 7.0 Nougat with EMUI 5.0. Yes I know EMUI already has this feature built-in, but just chiming in to say it works :)

How do I return the long press to Google Assistant if I uninstall?

Go to settings and search for "assist". You should find a setting to set the default assistant app. Choose the Google App.

I have only one Problem, OK Google don't work any more.

When you change the default Assistant app, I believe you have to go into the Google App's settings once again to enable "OK Google" voice detection

Can you send me a screenshot (power + volume down) of this case?
EDIT: Does this phone have a battery saver? It could be a problem. Screenshot Assistant have to be exluded from battery saving.

Phone Settings -> Apps -> Tap setting icon in upper right corner -> Assist & Voice Input -> Assistant App -> Choose Google Assistant

I have only one Problem, OK Google don't work any more.

This app replaces Google Assistant which is responsible for OK Google. Maybe I could fix it somehow. I'll look at this problem.

Wow, this is extremely responsive on both my axon 7 and oneplus 3.

I would definitely be willing to pay extra for a version with a scrolling screenshot.. This app is too good!!! ?? Excellent work!

You can see in 1st attachment, there is a white border, but after that, nothing happen. Also sometimes, very rarely, the screenshot taken after a few seconds that white border gone.

In 2nd attachment showing that I excluded this app from battery optimization.

If you cant figure it out, maybe a logcat can help? I can try to get it if you want. This app is supercoll because my power button will be dead soon, so Im trying to use my power button lesser than before.

What do you mean by "scrolling screenshot"?

Such behavior indicates that something is killing Screenshot Assistant.
I've seen on the screenshot, that you're using Greenify. Make sure Screenshot Assistant is excluded from Greenify's hibernation.

On oneplus 3 you can take a long screenshot. If you have an article it can scroll down and capture more than just size of screen. Like doing a panoramic pic but vertically

Interesting. It works only in a browser or also in applications like Messenger or Phone contacts? Does it work with Google Chrome?

I'm afraid I can't add status bar and navigation. The app receives screenshot from the system after you hold Home button. System sends it without status bar and navigation bars, so I don't have a control over it.

    Doesn't working for me on LOS 14.1! :confused:

    EDIT: Yes! Working now! All I had to do is change Long Press Setting on Buttons!
