As a mobile developer, its been always painful to get a screen capture from the mobile device. Usually, the pain is caused by the need for a capture including both the context (environment) and the device screen itself. You have to come up with your DIY solutions involving another video camera and a tool to get live capture from the smartphone at the same time.

If your concern is only about to get capture from the device, A-Shot looks like a nice tool to try! I’m starting using it, gonna comment on the software after… The only issue about its installation I had, was also pointed out in the comments. This issue is caused by an android SDK update, and adding platform-tools to the PATH didn’t work for me. I used the dirty solution of copying the adb back to the tools folder.
