Hi there and happy new year!
Not that it's not easy to find this information but I recently signed up on Snapchat and let's be honest, it's not easy to capture the device screen when long tapping the screen.
Fortunately, Android development kit comes with a shell that allows to control your device from your computer through adb. No teaching you anything today.
I quickly wrote a tiny script that would allow anyone who found the way to install adb to capture your device screen remotely.
Create a screenshot file in the same folder of the adb binary and paste the following content inside:
#!/bin/bash FILENAME=$(date +"%F-%k%M%S").png ./adb shell screencap -p /sdcard/$FILENAME ./adb pull /sdcard/$FILENAME ./adb shell rm /sdcard/$FILENAME open $FILENAME exit $?
Make sure your file is executable (
chmod u+x screenshot) and that the USB debug mode is enabled on your device.
From your shell, just launch the script whenever you wish to capture your device screen:
$ ./screenshot 4193 KB/s (80136 bytes in 0.018s)
That's it. You're a Snapchat hero!
