Tomi - Minor edit

Hi Chintan,

I like this compact article of yours. I hope you don't mind that I edited the introduction section; I added the info how to take a screenshot with WP8.

Blegs38552 - Screen Capture for Windows 7.5

Is there any good reason why this capability cannot be made available for non-unlocked phones (i.e., for all Windows 7.5 phones)?

Many users would like this capability, and apparently, it does work in the Win 7x operating systems.

Maybe Nokia can develop and release the application to the Windows Phone store?

Hamishwillee - @Blegs38552 - Yes

Its possible that Nokia could, but I doubt there is any business case (benefit for the cost) for doing so.

Probably right, but where is the business case for developing any of the free apps? If you are talking about ad support, I'm sure that they could use the same business model as they use for their other free apps.

hi Blegs38552 Nokia is not developing apps to earn money per download but Nokia is trying to create app which helps users a lot for example cinemagraph in Windows Phone 8 and other apps from Nokia. Also Creating a screenshot app is not too much useful for Nokia in case of business for Windows Phone 7 device. Though all windows Phone 8 devices has this feature in built.

I am not sure but I think new update Windows Phone 7.8 should have this screenshot feature inbuilt like WP8.

Hey everyone I've downloaded the xap file and trying to deploy / install it on my device (Windows Phone 7.1 lumia 710 developer unlocked)

I try to use Application deployment tool (I have windows 8 pro with Visual Studio Express 2012)

Chintandave er - @Elmcl - post tech question in DiBo

Hi Elmcl , I suggest you to post your question on Dibo for windows phone rather than in any article's comment section. You will get answer if you post your question on dibo.

Tripaabh - Foolishness to not to provide Screen Capture for Windows Phone 7

It's good to know that the Windows Phone 8 devices have an inbuilt feature for the screenshot, however this looks utter foolishness to not to give the same to Windows Phone 7 users. We obviously have paid for our mobiles and have the rights to have such facility.

I tried registering as a developer to get the Screen Capture app, however at the end it asked for some fees to register as one. I'm obviously not a Developer but I require the feature and I don't want to pay for it more when I know that I may brick my phone itself in the process. I don't know where to post this comment but it frustrates me like nothing else.
