What is it and what does it do

This apps functionality and objectives are very simple. It aims to simply make taking screenshots significantly easier than before.

  • Take a screenshot no matter what you are doing
  • Share screenshots
  • Edit screenshots
  • No root required
  • Over 10 different capture methods
  • View Screenshots to zip and share
  • Set folder and image format

Cons

  • Buggy and temperamental

Discussion

Screenshot Ultimate is designed to replace every other screenshot app out there. By using over 10 different capture methods, the application can virtually take a screenshot anywhere in the operating system. Once you have your screenshot you can choose to edit or share the images. When it comes to editing, you can draw on the image, add text, crop, and other editing functions.

Unlike most of the screenshot apps on the market, this app does not require root access. However, that is not always true because it requires some phones that are not rooted to connect to the computer. This incredibly misleading and incredibly inconvenient. You can create a library of screenshots, where you can zip multiple captures into one file and send them to anybody you like. You can also have complete control over the image format and the output folder.

Unfortunately, Screenshot Ultimate is not always easy to use. For starters, the app can be incredibly buggy and unstable. This causes errors when attempting to create screenshots, slow capture times, and other annoying inconveniences. On top of that, the app itself is very complicated. There are a ton of options that only serve to confuse basic users.

Conclusion and download link

Overall, this app is miles ahead of other screenshot apps. However, the instability and complexity take away from the overall appeal. If this app were to create a more intuitive and simple interface and combine it with the already existing features, then this app would be the only screenshot app necessary for Android.

    I’d have to question all the references to needing root.

    AFAIK, this is a stock feature on Android. All you need to do is press power+vol down. Instant, no extra software needed. Tested on a Atrix HD and a Nexus 7. Granted I don’t get the editing or cropping but that’s what desktop software like irfanview is for.
