Best Screenshot Apps for Android

Best Screenshot Apps for Android 2
The two-button combo for screenshots is easy but what if our smartphone has a fragile lock or volume button, we wouldn’t want the buttons to break, would we? Along with that, we sometimes need editing
tools for doodling, arrows, boxes etc.. to point out something in screenshots before we can post them on social networks. There are a number of screenshot apps on the Google Play Store that not only allow you to take screenshots with ease, they also bring some cool additional features.

We tried many apps on the Play Store and here are the best screenshot apps for Android (in no particular order):

Note: Most of the screenshot apps on Android come with various triggers
to take screenshots. Not every trigger will work on all smartphones due
to access or hardware limitations.

Best Screenshot Apps for Android

Screenshot Easy

Screenshot Easy is a very popular Android app for taking screenshots
with ease. The app has a very simple UI, which works well with Android’s
Material Design UI guidelines. There are various triggers in the app,
which lets you take a screenshot. You can choose to take a screenshot
through an overlay button, which keeps floating or using a button in the
notification center or by shaking your device. The app also lets you
set your hardware camera button to take screenshots and that’s if your
smartphone has a hardware camera button. If the app is running in the
background and you take a screenshot the conventional way, it detects
that and opens the screenshot in the app for your editing needs.
When it comes to the editing features, it lets you crop your
screenshots, ZIP it or print it. You can also change existing colors in a
screenshot to the one you like. There are options to show date &
time on screenshots and save the images in PNG or JPG format. Other
features of the app include themes, support for locale & tasker plugins. Moreover, the app is available for free on the Play Store.
Install: (Free)
Compatibility: Android 4.0 and up.

Screenshot Ultimate

Screenshot Ultimate is not the best looking Android app out there but
if you want a ton of features in a screenshot app, Screenshot Ultimate
won’t disappoint you. It has the most number of triggers to take a
screenshot and you might find some of them to be really convoluted. You
can take screenshots through an overlay button, notification bar button,
shaking your device, power connect/disconnect and more. There are
advanced triggers like audio trigger (blow into your device’s mic to
take screenshot), interval (set time period to automatically take
screenshots), cronjob (set when to take a screenshot in a specific app),
proximity (put finger on proximity sensor to take screenshots), intent
(tasker & locale support) and more.
Along with the various triggers, the app lets you make adjustments to
your screenshots, change formats and more. There are also editing
features like draw, crop, add text, rotate, mirror, effects and more. It
also lets you share images directly to Imgur. The good news is
Screenshot Ultimate is available for free on the Play Store.
Install: (Free)
Compatibility: Android 2.1 and up.

Screenshot Snap

While the Screenshot Snap app doesn’t really bring any intuitive
methods to take a screenshot, it makes up with its diverse editing
features. The app detects a screenshot being taken and loads it up on
the app. You can then edit the screenshot on the go and share it
quickly. You can doodle on an image with the pencil or paintbrush tool
and you can also insert arrows, boxes, text and more.
The app brings you the option to save images in PNG or JPG, increase
or decrease image quality. Screenshot Snap is available in a free
version but it is limited when it comes to features and the ads can be a
little annoying. The paid version of the app brings some cool stamps,
blur tool, cloud uploading and removes ads.
Install: (Free, Paid $0.99)
Compatibility: Android 4.0 and up.

Perfect Screen Shot

Perfect Screen Shot is another cool screenshot app, which stands out
due to its unique features. The app feels smooth in operation and it
embodies Android’s Material Design UI, if that’s a deal breaker for you.
While the app does not take screenshots for you, it detects when one is
taken and opens the app with the screenshot right in front. It lets you
frame your screenshots inside a device’s frame and you can edit the
colors, background and more. There are various options to edit the
frames and you can add glare, shadows & blur to the images. You can
get frames of various devices ranging from Nexus devices such as Nexus
6P, Nexus 5X to Galaxy S6 Edge, One M9, Moto G and more.
The free “Classic” version of the app is pretty limited when it comes
to the number of frames and editing features. The paid “Ultra” version
brings you 3D frames, various editing options like background color,
custom background images, optional blur and more.  You can also choose
to edit your screenshots without a frame, if frames are not really your
thing. The app also lets you import screenshots from any cloud storage
services that you use like Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox etc.. To sum
it up, Perfect Screen Shot is a cooler way to share screenshots and
those screenshots certainly do look better inside a device frame.
Install: (Free Classic, Paid Ultra $1.99)
Compatibility: Android 4.0.3 and up.

Capture Screenshot

Capture Screenshot is very similar to Screenshot Easy but Capture
Screenshot is a great screenshot app in its own right. The app is fast
and is designed beautifully, so full marks to the developers on that
front. It brings you various triggers like overlay button, notification
shade button and shake to capture. Once you click the “Start Service”
button, the app starts running in the background and detects whatever
screenshots you take.
Once a screenshot is taken, Capture Screenshot lets you crop, draw,
rotate, invert, add text and more. It also brings a number of filters
like Boost, Grayscale, Gamma, Hue, Vignette etc.. There’s ability to
save screenshots in PNG or JPG image formats. Along with that, the app
brings you themes and you can choose the color you like for the app to
give it a personalized look. While the free version of Capture
Screenshot packs in most of the features, the “Pro” version removes ads
and brings more filters.
Install (Free, Pro version $3)
Compatibility: Android 2.3 and up.
