Whip2Snap for Screenshot Capture Now Available
There are many apps to take screenshots of out devices screens. But none of them are nearly as fun as this little program made by XDA member eried.

- Customizable behaviour (single/multiple screenshots, with/without confirmation)
- Cool “whip” sound effect
- Multiple image format supported as output (png, jpeg, gif and bmp)
You can find more information in the application thread.
