    Android 2.3.3 to allow screenshots without rooting


    Changes in the Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread source will allow applications to take screenshots without rooting your phone. We've always been able to take screenshots using the SDK and the ddms utility (which you can see above), and some third-party manufacturer skins have enabled it -- both accidentally and on purpose. But with Android 2.3.3 it appears that applications will be able to do it without rooting on stock Android.

    Thanks to wicked

    That is good news... Android should be as open as possible.

    iOS has been able to take screen shots for 4 years now. About time Android catches up.

    Sorry for bringing Apple up, but it's ridiculous that it took this long to get a very simple feature

    I'd care more if 2.3 would ever be released for the Droid X.

    I remember the old days before the Android was rooted that there was a way to take a screenshot but you had to jump through many hoops to get there. This will be nice for those who don't want to root their android devices.

    So the boatloads of other things iOS CANT do means nothing because of this one simple feature?

    Seems like an odd thing to not be able to do in the first place.

    I've always wondered what the reason for that is.

    Lets face it, the people that really want to take a screenshot have probably already rooted anyways.
