If you're making use of a rooted device, chances are you have a screenshot application installed. If nothing else, rooting your device for the fact you can then easily take screenshots is enough alone. Being unrooted and trying to take screenshots just sucks. That said, many of you out there are likely using ShootMe as your screenshot app of choice and if so you'll want to hit the Android Market as soon as you can and grab the latest update that is now available.

Having been just a pretty basic screenshot app in the past, ShootMe has now evolved into a screenshot and screencasting app. A new user interface is now in effect and ShootMe is looking pretty damn awesome. The new screencasting portion, while not perfect, is a pretty sweet inclusion to the app allowing you to record videos off of your device right up to 10 frames per second on supported devices. No audio recording is present, but that's not essentially vital to the apps working as you can easily voice over a video at a later time if need be. Plus, there is always the chance it could be added in a later update. Awesome update to say the least. Hit the break for the download link if you're on a rooted device. Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

I use an app called "Screenshot it" on my UNrooted EVO. Does the same thing

Unibrow says:

yup, great app. unrooted evo here too with Screenshot it

ksuwald says:

After or before the update? I have it currently on my Evo, unrooted.

rickyrajat says:

both. worked before and after the updated. never rooted my evo.

icebike says:

Probably the EVO is the only model it works on unless rooted.

There is a story about this here:

Nope, works on an unrooted LG Optimus S as well.

admiral70 says:

Pretty slick and works well on the Droid X, once you start the continuous what is the easiest way to turn off? Hopefully without going back into Shootme and Quit.

Bla1ze says:

Yeah.. you do have to click on the icon until the quit pop up comes up. Not that big of a deal though.

Windfrenzy says:

I'm hesitant to upgrade to this version as it's working on my unrooted Epic and does what I need.

onixblack says:

I love it abut wouldn't it be easier to use a feature like HOLD THE BACK button for 3 seconds instead of shaking my phone lol. Also I have a EVO 4G unrooted and it works perfectly.

onixblack says:

Its weird how it works on my EVO 4G unrooted but a friends Droid Incredible unrooted it doesn't work at all....Verizon!!!!

MikeYasuragi says:

My guess is that audio recording while screencasting will come eventually. Why? ShootME requires permission to record audio.

Bla1ze says:

The developer is working on it. It's listed in the update information on the Android Market. Should have said that in the post itself but I didn't notice it until after I had already posted.

Works fine for me before and after the update on my unrooted LG Optimus S.

robby2769 says:

Don't work on droid 2 unrooted.

8rian says:

Works on my unrooted Epic 4g!

mike340t says:

Any Epic with 2.2 dk28 runnng has screenshot built in however with no app needed...

Ytaay says:

the screencast is pretty cool; works just fine on my rooted and unloved ("No FroYo for YOU!") FASN8. too bad the frame rate isn't a little higher and the video a little bigger but thats ok. me likey. :)

kinster02 says:

Still works and has always worked on my Evo.

weehooherod says:

I live ShootMe, so much better than drocap2.

bradleynj219 says:

Just tried this app and I love it!

svargas05 says:

Hmmmm.... looks like only Sprint devices allow this to work unrooted.

Coincidence? Sprint's just badass.

rodohmes says:

Also works great on my unrooted EVO, before and after the update.

veteranmina says:

Works on my U.S. Cellular Samsung Mesmerize 2.1 non-rooted.
