Works great on my P4300 (Wizard) with WM6.1 The only thing it is missing is support for storage cards. I can select where I save the files, but all options are on the device. I am a Linux user so this requires an extra step to copy them to the SD card so I can mount it and pull them off. Other than that, it is a great app!

Looks great, but do I need to extract this zip file from a PC? When I try & unzip it from my Tilt (using Resco File Explore '07) it says "Nothing to extract. Selection does not contain any files".

Thanks.
I used built-in compression in Vista to create the zip so maybe that is the problem. You can unzip on the PC and copy to your Tilt.

Thanks for trying it.

Thanks for giving it a try. I am working on adding the storage cards to the folder browse. Coming soon. I will update the first post when I have a new version.

@ oldsap
I cannot use a listbox on smartphones so not sure how I would implement the task list option. However, I would be glad to do a smartphone version if there is enough people that would use it.

@ Moe5508
Thanks for the kind words.

@ All
I'll have a new version next week that includes Storage cards for the Save folder. In the meantime, note that the box that has the Save folder is open to typing also. You can type a path there without using the browse feature. That should be a temporary fix to allow you to save your captures anywhere on the device.

Post #1 is updated with a new version that supports Storage Cards. I had to do this by brute force. My library woudl only return network folders so to get a storage card to appear in the folder browse it must have a name that starts with Storage Card. That should be the default anyway.

Hope it works for you.

@all
Thanks for testing. I really want CapSure to be the best screen capture so I'll keep improving as long as there is interest. Everyone has been so great to test my app and the kind words are greatly appreciated. I've finally been able to give back to the community and I'm proud of the results.

@iiiox
Can't thank you enough for creating the cab. You're awesome.
