    App Request: screenshot (on device, no PC)

    Dear dudes who like to write tiny freeware applets for us heathens and mere mortals,

    I am fully aware of the screenshot solution that requires a PC (I forget the name, but the author is on Pinstack a lot), but this doesn't help us mac/linux users one bit. I would love to get my grubby hands on an app that works like Antony Pranata's app does on the S60 (Symbian) platform, it's what everyone uses and I miss it:

    http://www.antonypranata.com/screenshot/



    Is anyone out there willing to take up the challenge and provide the community with a little bit of codery? My gut instincts say:

    - hotkey definable, defaults to something compatible with 8700, 8100 and 71xx series (maybe ALT+MENU?)
    - defaults saving a JPG to SDcard if present, but user-selectable save directory
    - JPG format with basic option to choose quality (default 80% compression level)
    - ability to define filename beginning, defaults to "ss_" or something (so "ss_001.jpg" and onwards up)

    ...which is basically how Antony's works -- he developed a great UI and set of choices that didn't leave you wanting for anything. It just works.

    @hayden - thanks, heh.

    metsfan took a quick look and responded over on BBF, I'll link in that thread. It gets a little confusing with everyone using two message forums at the same time.
