How to Take a Screenshot on your Android Smartphone?

This is a question that I was asked so many times, that I decided to write an article about it.

Last week, two of my friends who have asked me how they can take a screenshot using their smartphones. The first guy is in his mid thirties and the second guy in his late fifties. Both of them used to use iPhones but have recently changed to Galaxy S3.

Both of them were telling me about the simplicity of taking a screenshot on the iPhone. According to their story, you just need to press the camera shooter and that’s it! The screenshot is taken.

On the Android world, things usually do not work the same way, especially when it comes to screenshots. But it is not the end of the world. By installing an app, you can easily overcome this issue.

There are several different apps that you can use, but my favorite one is Screenshot Ultimate.

With Screenshot Ultimate, you can take a snapshot of your screen and edit/share with friends.

The good thing about this app is that you can take a snapshot easily on your Android device (no root required and it is possible connect the device to the computer and run the app). You can take screenshots on your tablet, phone or other Android device for FREE!

Share, draw, add text to a screenshot or even send/edit multiple screenshots!
