    I use un-rooted galaxy r to capture screen by pressing and holding down Home key followed quickly by On/Off key. You need a bit of practice to get the timing right.

    Am I missing something? Why would I get this app? Screen capture is a standard feature on my galaxy s2.
    Holding power button and volume down takes a screen capture (ICS) or those running gingerbread press power button + home button.
    No additional software needed.
    Am I right or am I right?.
