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.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
