App Review: PicMe (Screen Grabber)
PicMe is a tool to capture the screen from your Android device, however it can only be used on rooted devices. It has been tested on Dream, Magic, Hero, Galaxy.
To get a screenshot from your Android device, you can install the Android SDK, connect the phone via USB and use the Dalvik Debug Monitor (ddms). Or you can use Screenshot (only rooted devices), it will save the captured screen on your memory card (or sent it by email) but you will still need to transfer it to your computer.
PicMe will get the screen capture directly to your computer, in your browser. You just need to point to the IP address of your Android device (displayed when you start PicMe), then you can save the graphic and refresh the page to get the next one… this is very easy and simple to use.
According to the developer the “next version will embed a VNC server and expose VNC applet to support more dynamic views”, very promising!
UPDATE: The latest version 0.6.2, available on the Market, has now a live mode, with a refresh rate of 1 to 2 seconds depending on your wireless.Â You can see what is displayed on the screen of your Android from your browser or a Java standalone player. This tool is going to be very handy for demos and tutorial.Â Good job Johan!
