    The screenshot app requires your phone to be rooted.

    If you install the Android SDK you can use DDMS.bat to do a screen capture of the device:

    Yes do as stigy said, it's the only way to get a screenshot that i know of.
    Resistance is futile.

    How come getting a screenshot is so difficult? Why can't it be a simple app?

    Agreed mitch. Iphone has screen capture native. Home ++ added screen capture but only of the home screen. I want a free app for non rooted droid for capture of any screen your on. Any developers reading this? I know I'm not the only onw who wants this feature

    The problem is an app would have to access the framebuffer (which stores frames processed by the GPU to display the screen) which is processed by the OS directly, so that would require root. It most likely also requires root on the iPhone as well, but since Apple wrote that feature, it's safe.
