How to set up Android screenshot capture

Dropshare 4.2 and newer

Dropshare is able to take and upload screenshots from connected Android devices. Please make sure the Android device has USB debugging enabled (read more), and you have installed the latest adb tools

Dropshare expects adb to be installed in one of the following locations (ordered by priority:

  • ~/Library/Android/sdk/platform-tools/adb
  • /usr/local/bin/adb
  • /usr/local/opt/android-sdk/platform-tools/adb

Additionally Dropshare requires screenshot2 to be installed on your system, which is part of the adb tools and will be installed automatically when you install those. Dropshare expects screenshot2 to be installed in one of the following locations (ordered by priority)

  • ~/Library/Android/sdk/tools/screenshot2
  • /usr/local/opt/android-sdk/tools/screenshot2

Taking screenshots works for USB connected Android devices as well as simulators (taking a screenshot from a simulator might take a little while due to the internals of screenshot2).

In case something does not work, you can check the log files for more information.
