Yesterday, I posted a test version in wpxap.com, and now this is the updated version.

= Step =
  1. Click "Start Capture Task" to start capturing (A timer will start, and during this period, application will listen to Camera button event)
  2. You may need to wait one or several seconds, a message box will show up to let you know you can start catpuring.
  3. Navigate to any application, and touch Camera button to capture the screen
  4. A message box will show if the capturing is success, you can capture 20 images a one time (yes, you can ask for more if you want)
  5. When the Capture Task ends, a Toast will show up to let you save the captured image, tap the Toast to return to application
  6. The thumbnail will list and the captured images will stored in Pictures Hub
  7. Tap the thumbnail will delete the temporary image file in the application folder

= Settings Help =
  • Prevent Capture Task auto run: Capture Task uses BackgroundAgent to run and wait for Camera button event, BackgroundAgent may auto run in some case, enable this option to stop auto capture.
  • The Capture Task duration: How long will the Capture Task run before it stop to accept Camera button event.

= Notice =
  • Game and movie is not supported in this version.
  • The Capture Task only save temporary file, you need go back to application to trigger saving file to Picutres Hub.

Great improvement compared to V2 ! Thanks for that.

Now I know who you are: The creator of Chome Visual Editor.

Nice to see you here. Long time I used your tool for editing cpr´s on my OMNIA II.

Also (late) thanks for that app !


Best regards

A suggestion from my side:

Let the user decide whether he wants to save the captured image or delete it inside your app.

This means when the user has finished his capture session by pressing "no" go straight back to your app (remove the toast for saving the image). By long-pressing on a captured picture appears a menu:

view (if possible)
delete
save to picture hub
send via sms or email (if possible)

Installed on my HD2 running official Mango. I installed using Tom's XAP installer v1.2. Also not working with my hardware button. It says the action is complete, but it doesn't show in the recent area of the application.

I still say the layout and design is great.

The HD2 camera button issue is allready known since fiinix has released the first version of the screen capture app...

    Could someone look into this question?

    Just curious - I am new to WP7. Is there any reason why an app such as this cannot be certified by Microsoft and offered through the Marketplace?
    No one seems to be able to answer this, either in this forum or anywhere else.

    Is there a technical reason why a screen capture app cannot be developed for a locked Windows 7x phone?

    If not, is there any good reason why this has not been done?

    Why is this program not for sale on Marketplace?
    Because it uses interop to access the bitmap of the screen and Microsoft doesn't allow that for marketplace apps.

    Great work JerryJiang!

    I have been to say "not motivated" to release The Dllimport as "ATL" compiled to work on Mango (devices). Great anyways that you/creator succeeded to make it to work.

    Ill be releasing a next version of The Dllimport today (Mango compatible); (that i have been holding for too long locally on my desktop in a folder.... -.- Bout 2 month done....)
    - What a shame...

    Well, great helping me out.
