Capture screenshots within or outside of an application

Tags: Windows Phone

I earlier wrote about a simple solution to capture screenshots within your own application, but unfortunately the solution has it's flaws. You can't capture the Application Bar or content visible in a browser control. Instead I'm now leveraging the excellent solution published on XDA-developers. It's an application that can be installed on all developer unlocked devices which leverages a background agent to react to the camera shutter button and when pressed will capture the current screen. It also has some flaws in that it can't capture a video or anything rendered by XNA, but it still very useful until Microsoft includes this feature natively in the OS.
