Capture Screenshots On WP7 And Send Them Directly To Your PC

We’ve previously covered Screen Capturer, which allows you to save a screenshot on your Windows Phone by pressing the camera button. However, it’s a bit cumbersome to get those screenshots transferred to your PC, since Windows Phone requires the Zune software for synchronization. In order to provide an easier solution to that problem, forum member N37-L0RD  has developed WP Screenshot.

It consists of a desktop application, which displays the screenshots, and a phone app in which you have to type in the IP address of your computer (hit start, type “cmd”, enter, and type “ipconfig” in the command prompt to get the IPv4 address). Once you press the “connect and start” button on your phone, half-press the camera button and a screenshot should show up in the desktop app, which you can easily save by pressing CTRL+S.

The only minor issue is that this becomes unusable with the HTC HD2, as it does not have a camera button allowing half-presses. For everyone else, check out the application in the forum thread.

Best of Matias Duarte – “Ask Me Anything” Summary

Matias Duarte, VP of Design at Google, is perhaps one of the most prolific software designers of recent times: Material Design, the highest exponent of Android beauty, is Matias' own brainchild. Without him and his creation, the biggest Android update of all time wouldn't have been what it was and our favorite platform would still carry a look that many deemed outdated even before Material Design was shown.
