taking a screenshot of app

Hello,

 

how can I take a screenshot of my app ?, I think of two ways of doing it, don't know which one is easier and possible:

 

1) manually take a screenshot within code (my app is an OpenGL game), and save it somewhere to be able to retrieve it, if this is possible, which place (folder?) can I save the picture ?

 

2) take the screenshot using some mechanism within the OS (don't know if that is possible), and retrieve it in some way.

 

any hints apreciated, thanks!

much simple :smileywink:

press Volume Up+ Volume Down simultaneously.

image will be in Playbook/media/camera/IMG_00000x.jpg (works well with GLES apps)
