Usability Updates for the Android Screenshot Tool

Thanks to some tips and feedback from the folks at xda-developers, I've been able to make some handy changes to the Screenshot application:

  • Screenshots are now captured much faster; images are being decoded directly from the R5G6B5 format.
  • Screenshots are now automatically saved to the SD card.
  • You can now use the camera button to capture screenshots. (The Screenshot application must be started first)
  • If you assign a hotkey to the Screenshot application, you can use that hotkey to also instantly take a screenshot. (The Screenshot application must be started first)

Love this app -- thanks so much! Only problem is when I use it says something like screenshot.raw is not found! And doesn't work -- any idea why that might be?

screenshot.raw is not found! - anybody knows what the problem is and how it can be fixed?
