Web Scrapbook Lets You Capture and Crop Screenshots from Websites More Efficiently

It’s been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. This certainly holds true when providing instructions for complicated tasks. In fact, one need only look so far as the vast number of screenshots seen in the nearly countless guides covered here on the XDA Portal to see how useful these screenshots can be. In addition to their role in educational content, carefully crafted screenshots also have plenty of other uses when conveying thoughts or emotions.

Despite their usefulness and practicality, screenshots aren’t used as frequently as they should be. Unfortunately, much of this has to do with convenience. Sure, taking and editing a screenshot is a simple task on a traditional computer. But if you’re on a mobile device, this quickly becomes a bit of a hassle when basic editing is required. Luckily, XDA Forum Member OctoberApps hopes to solve this with his new app Web Scrapbook.

As its name implies, Web Scrapbook helps you take screenshots of the Web. But rather than simply using the native screenshot functionality in Android, Web Scrapbook optimizes the experience by letting you crop the snippet from within the app itself rather than the gallery app or another photo editor. In order to use the app, you must first navigate to a webpage that you’d like to capture. Then, use the Android share functionality to send the URL to Web Scrapbook. Once opened, the app will let you crop the image, as well as share it to your social media sites if you so desire. Once captured, all of your screenshots will appear in the app’s built in album viewer.

If you’ve ever wanted to take screenshots of the web more easily, head over to the application thread and give Web Scrapbook a try.

Would The LG G4 Fare Well With The Snapdragon 808?

The LG G4 has a lot to prove, given that last year’s LG G3 was among the best smartphones of 2014. The Global Mobile Awards given out during the time of MWC 2015 named it the Smartphone of The Year (SOTY?) alongside the iPhone 6, and at the time of its release it packed the very best in Android specifications, from the powerful Snapdragon 801 to the class-leading 1440p display. The camera, battery life and feature set were also deemed...
