What is the best way for you to capture screenshots? For Android 4.0+ running devices, it would probably be using the Power and Volume down buttons together. That stores the captured screenshot to your device’s storage. If you were to store the captured screenshots to your windows machine, you would probably connect your device to the PC and transfer them. But there’s always a better alternative way to doing things traditionally. One such alternative is Advanced Screenshot Creator developed by XDA-Developers forum member Diamondback. It is a light tool for windows machines to capture screenshots of an Android device connected to it via USB cable.
The tool adds some functionality to the Dalvik Debug Monitor Server (DDMS) tool which provides port-forwarding services, screen capture on the device, thread and heap information on the device, logcat, process, and radio state information, incoming call and SMS spoofing, location data spoofing, and more.
To get started with Advanced Screenshot Creator, all you need is a PC running Windows Vista or later (including Windows 8), Microsoft .NET 4.5, properly set up ADB drivers for your device and the tool itself.
- Take screenshots from any ADB connected device
- Automatically save all taken screenshots to a user specified folder
- Show you each screenshot in the tool, so you know exactly what you already have and what you still need
- Replace existing screenshots in case you are not happy with them
