VITO ScreenCapture Review

Lately Tracy and I have been reviewing more PocketPC and Smartphone software and we needed a way to capture screen shots to illustrate our reviews.

In the past we used the screen capture tool that’s part of Microsoft’s power toys, however, this tool doesn’t work with WM5 devices. We needed to find something else.

I had a good look around the web and asked other people what they like to use to capture screen shots from their PocketPC. There are quite a few products out there that can do the job but many of them are rather expensive.

VITO ScreenCapture

I started having a look though the products available from our ClickApps Store when I came across VITO ScreenCapture.

VITO is a name that I knew and I had seen their products before but I had no idea that they did a Screen Capture application. So I decided to give it a shot and download the trial.

Installation could not be easier, you simply run the Executable on your desktop PC and it’s all done for you. There isn’t anything to install on your PocketPC or Smartphone, it’s all done from the desktop. Just connect your device via active sync and start the ScreenCapture application.

ScreenCapture Window

You are presented with a very simple window which gives you three buttons. ‘Capture Screen’, ‘Copy to Clipboard’ and ‘Save to File’. It’s dead easy to use. You press the capture button, you see a screenshot from your mobile device and then you can either save the screen as a file or copy to clipboard. That’s all there is to it!

Having played around with this for quite a while I haven’t found anything that it wont capture. It works equally well on PocketPC or Smartphone. What’s more the tool costs less than £5!

Description :
VITO ScreenCapture is a small utility to make screenshots of your Pocket PC or Smartphone from a desktop PC. With VITO Screen Capture it’s a matter of two clicks. VITO Screen Capture automatically detects your Pocket PC or Smartphone when you connect it to your desktop PC and start ActiveSync. Now you can capture the screen image on your Pocket PC. It is immediately displayed on the desktop PC, you can save it as a bitmap image file or copy it to the clipboard.
