Take Screenshots of Apps on Windows Phone 7 SDK Tool

Windows Phone Screenshot

Microsoft released the SDK tool for their latest version of  Windows mobile OS, Windows Phone 7. As a developer you would like to take screenshot of your apps running on the Windows Phone 7 (WP7) emulator. Obviously you can use Windows Snipping tool to screen capture your app but it will capture SDK screen without the Windows Phone 7 phone frame. What if you want to capture  Windows Phone 7 along with  app running in background. Here is an app for that.

Windows Phone 7 Simulator Cropper is an app that can capture screen from Windows Phone SDK. It basically does the job of screen capture tool but here it adds a Windows Phone 7 frame to the screenshot you take. This is useful for blog posts and presentation slides you make.

Update: This app got updated and now features skins including that of Samsung Focus, HTC Mozart, HTC HD7, LG Optimus 7 and Samsung Omnia. Also supports landscape mode now.

    Hey, I see the full UI, all default app tiles in the screenshot above. Is this is from the WP7 Emulator in the SDK or an actual phone connected to PC in some way? I am asking cos WP7 Emulator in SDK only has Internet Explorer, no other apps show up there.
