    The first two that i downloaded (and they do work well):

    1. Drocap2
    2. Terminal Emulator

    Any other suggestions?

    Subscribing. Are these apps that require the phone to be rooted usually available in the market? I have seen a few apps that say a root is required, but I don't recognize either one of the apps that the OP listed.

    to use drocap, i find it easier to use the "timer" method.

    1. start up drocap. and change the setting to "timer". make the timer as long as you want.
    2. Press Start.
    3. Navigate to the screen you want shot
    4. Wait until the timer is up. then wait for the clicking to stop. and voila you have the screenshot saved in /drocap folder

    With the open home app, you can program it to use the camera button to screen cap. Seems much easier.
