In this guide, I will explain how to take a snapshot of any screen on your iPhone.

Follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to the screen on which you wish to take a picture. Examples may include: a Web page with a CAPTCHA for solona or an application that is inaccessible with VoiceOver.
  2. Press and hold the Home button, then, while holding, press and release the sleep/wake button. This will take a .jpeg immage of the current screen and place it in your camera role. From there, you can e-mail it to your self just as if it was a normal picture you took with your camera.

feel free to leave ideas for this useful feature.
