Taking Screenshot 696x361 - How to take a scrolling screenshot on any Android device

If you can’t afford to buy a OnePlus phone or a high-end Galaxy device, don’t worry. You can still take advantage of this feature by employing the help of third-party apps from the Google Play Store.

For this tutorial, we’re going to use LongShot, but there are other options like Scroll Capture. Unfortunately this app has a few shortcomings.

Here’s how to use LongShot to take a long screenshot

  1. Open the LongShot app on your device.
  2. Turn the Auto-scroll option in Settings>Accessibility as prompted.
  3. Tap on the Capture Screenshot icon in the app. The following messages should be displayed: “LongShot will start capturing everything that’s displayed on your screen.” Tap Start Now.
  4. Navigate to the page you want to take a screenshot of.
  5. Tap on the floating “Start” green button that has appeared on your display.
  6. Scroll down until satisfied and click above the red line to stop capturing
  7. Edit the resulting screenshot in the app and save it.
  8. From there you can easily Share it.

There’s also the option to use the Capture Web page option, but this feature only allows you to screenshot in the app’s browser.

Scroll Capture is another app you can take long screenshots. However, you can only use it to take a shot in the app’s own browser. On top of that, it takes screenshots of the entire web page, top to bottom and does not let you select certain parts. Although, you can manually crop the parts that interest you afterwards.
