How to take a screenshot on your Mobile or Tablet

How to take a screen shot on your Mobile or Computer.

We often ask you to send us a “Screenshot” when you are having an issue with your streaming service and are not sure on how to take a screenshot on their phone/tablet so I thought I would provide some simple insturctions

Android: If you’re Running Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) and above.

Get the app or screen that you want to capture ready to go.

Press and hold the “Power” button and the “Home” button at the same time (for phones with no “home” button, hold down the “Power” button and “Volume down” button)

You'll hear the camera shutter sound fire off, along with a short flashing animation, and that's how you know you're good to go.

You'll now be able to see the screenshot in the “Gallery” app. From here you can attach it to your sms, email or direct message and send to the desired recipient.



Apple IOS:

You can capture the screen on your iOS device using the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons.

Get the app or screen that you want to capture ready to go.

Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on the top or side of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, then immediately press and release the Home button.

You'll hear the camera shutter sound fire off, along with a short flashing animation, and that's how you know you're good to go.

You can find the screenshot in your "Photos" app.
