Screenshot for OS 5

Great way to share what you're doing

by Shawn Barnett

Posted May 23, 2003

It's been a long time since I've fiddled with "hacks" on my Palm device. Once I realized many of them were slowing things down, I dumped them right there. The only thing I missed was ScreenShotHack. The good news is that they're back, and without the hack. ScreenShot 5 is a standalone program that works a lot better than the old hack. There are several methods to invoke the program. In the screen at right, I've chosen to draw a single stroke from the Find icon to the Favorites icon on my T to activate the screenshot, and I've chosen the opposite to select a 3 second delay capture. After capture, you can view the images on the device, or HotSync them to the PC with a special conduit. One thing it can't do is capture Sony Graffiti areas, but otherwise it's flawless and easily worth the US$12.
