Rico, search for "Screen Capture Shortcut" in the Market.  This app will work on an unrooted phone.  Rumor has it that there is a way to do screenshots built into Froyo using the back and home keys, but we haven't been able to do this on purpose yet.  Many people have done it accidentally.

Re: ANDROID: Which Apps Do You Have

Is your Aria running Android 2.2? I think that Screen Capture Shortcut will only run on Android 2.2.

Re: ANDROID: Which Apps Do You Have

Yep upgraded the weekend that the FroYo 2.2.2 update was released. When I tried to open the app to view any settings and to find out how it worked, it gave a message "this device is not supported" and went to the home screen.

Re: ANDROID: Which Apps Do You Have

Sorry about that. I saw this on the Vibrant forum and didn't realize it only works for the Galaxy series.

ANDROID: Which Apps Do You Have (MyBackupPro)

MyBackupPro (www.rerware.com)

 

I have installed MyBackupPro that allows you to backup to your SD Card and/or to an online repository thats password protected. I have run several at my SD Card level only and like the app.  Compared to the Dell  backup that came with the phone, this app works for both unrooted and rooted androids .  The Dell restore would constantly throw an error when i tested restoring a backup file.

 

 

You can download a free 100% fully functional (for 30 days) version from the Android Market .  Purchasing the app is very inexpensive .

Re: ANDROID: Which Apps Do You Have (MyBackupPro)

I was finally able to download apps from the Android Market last night (over Wi-Fi), and I am very pleased and excited to finally be able to have them on my Android phone. Here is what I have...

 

Angry Birds

 

Angry Birds Rio

 

Angry Birds Seasons

 

Ant Smasher

 

Fruit Slice

 

Action Potato (Smiley Very Happy)

 

Flashlight Professional (Awesome!)

 

As well as some awesome live wallpapers.

 

This is absolutely amazing. I never knew that Android could be this cool. I am so happy I have decided to go with an Android phone!

Re: ANDROID: Which Apps Do You Have

Live wallpapers really are neat. I just downloaded this one particular one where there are the Android robots crawling and wiggling around all over the screen. You can ever change the colors of the Droids and the background. I also have this one that looks like a galaxy of stars - it fits my phone perfectly, as it is a part of the "Galaxy S" series.

I love how customizable Android is. It sure beats Apples iOS... Smiley Wink

LOL that last comment WB! Smiley Very Happy

Since they actually work on the Aria, I too have downloaded the Angry Birds trio. I'm terrible at getting a good score, but it is a good time waster.

Learning to like WeatherBug. The Weather Channel application was been disappointing lately. I had to try something different.

Re: ANDROID: Which Apps Do You Have

While live wallpapers are cool. I have read that they can add extra drain to the battery.

I found some wonderful static "android" wallpapers on Android Central forum.
