Quick Tip: Take a Screenshot of Your Android Phone Without Rooting It

Android , Android development Add comments

Just a quick note about something I learned yesterday:  a few blog posts ago, I said that when you publish your Android app, you want to provide a couple of screenshots, and I said that you could do that either by using the emulator to simulate your Android phone and getting the screen via a normal computer screenshot, or by rooting your phone and using one of several screenshot apps.

Turns out that one of the tools that comes with the Android SDK lets you take a screenshot from your actual Android phone screen without the need to root the phone:  you just need to plug your phone into the computer where the SDK is installed and run the tool.  Here is the page I found that described the tool and where to find the screenshot option:
