Morning all,
Was wondering what you all use to do a screen capture on Android or iOS? I see some folks posting captures but I cant find any info on other posts that told what you all used. I'd like to be able to grab some screens for a bug report.

If I remember correctly you do a YODA type Jedi sweep of the screen on android to screen shot for androids

When you upload the image it should give you a link with the <IMG> tag. Copy the <IMG>www.photobucket/mypicture.jpg</IMG> into your post and voila. I use tinypic.com but there are many sites to choose from.

On Photobucket in the Image links Toolbox copy the code which says IMG code and paste it in your post.

A lot of android phones you need root to screen capture. On galaxy nexus/ nexus 4 power + volume down does it. Not sure why you need root as it is a stock android feature that manufacturers have disabled.

on most android phones: power button + home button = print screen
on ipad: power button + home button (the only button ipad has :D) = print screen
