Recently launched on the market, Nokia N9 comes with a brand new operating system based on Linux, MeeGo
Even though it took Google quite a long time to make it possible for basic users to take screenshots on their Android devices, it appears that Nokia N9
received this feature at launch.
Obviously, the feature does not come embedded in the phone, as part of the MeeGo's software, instead you will need to install a third-party application that will enable this feature.
The good news is that you won't need to search for this application on shady app stores, instead Nokia is offering it via its Ovi Store
, free of charge.
If you own a Nokia N9 open the store application and search for ScreenshotMee. Developed by Ionascu
, the application is free for download and use.
While other similar apps for Nokia N9 allow you to take screenshots using a timer, ScreenshotMee only requires you to cover the display of the phone to be able to take a screenshot.
In fact, it's quite alright if you just cover the light sensor placed just above the display with your hand, instead of placing your hand on the whole display.
As soon as the screenshot is taken you can save the image and click on the “Make new
” option to take another snapshot.
It appears that the developer of the application offers great support, as the application is still in beta and a work in progress.
The latest 0.3.3 version preserves the aspect of the screenshots taken and allows users to rotate the snapshot before saving it.
With ScreenshotMee you won't have to worry about size, as the latest version offers a reduced package size. In addition, support for landscape mode is included as well.Feel free to suggest your own Nokia N9 tips and tricks, especially if you're an advanced user.
