    I'd love some testing of my new tool: HomeScreenshot

    I made it for theme-makers for the most part, to quickly show off their themes -- to assist in making screenshots to share. Another great use for it is to share your layout, or to just show-off your apps; you might even turn it into a signature.

    Works good with:
    -Themes; can show-off multi-page themes and background.html
    -Infinidock; the icons will fill along the bottom
    -Iconoclasm; will show off your multi-page layouts nicely
    -Mostly everything works well

    known issues:
    -multi-page themes cover the page-dots and statusbar (to be fixed soon)
    -Infiniboard makes this kinda not work as intended to show all icons (need a clever solution)

    Features coming soon:
    -Inclusion of the spotlight search page
    -Inclusion of the Away Lockscreen
    -Toggling of certain elements to be discluded
    -Customizable statusbar text to accompany theme for screenshot purposes
    -Upload to your favorite photo-sharing service, or to Twitter, Fb, etc.


    --------------------------

    How to Use:
    -Install with dpkg> dpkg -i com.optimo.homescreenshot_0.1.deb
    -Respring after dpkg has completed
    -Activate by doing the regular screenshot gesture (home+sleep) while on the first page of icons your home screen. An alert will notify you that the shot has been added to your camera-roll or photo album.
    -If you want to share these pics, for now you can retrieve them from the folder: /var/mobile/Media/DCIM/APPLE100 -- alternatively you could upload them from your photo album with something like Photoshare

    Please feel free to start showing off in this thread or elsewhere. I 'm especially interested to see these resized into signature-banners. Leave any comments or suggestions here too

    This is a cool idea, I'll try it out. But we can't have sig images here so that's not gonna happen.

    Would it be possible to have it take a shot of the music player as well? Most screenshots consist of the lock screen, the first SpringBoard page, and the music player.

    Its a good feuature but it does have its faults
    1. If u try to screenshot on the defalt apps, it resprings
    2.If you do it twice with the message up you get a stange shot
    3.If you screenshot on eh lock screen you get a wird outcome (check the attachments)

    and for my own reasons i dont like that the dock only covers a few shots

    Thanks for the feedback. These bugs will be fixed soon and I'll be back to post an updated package.

    -Both the bugs and the crashing in other apps was result of a typo.

    -I do plan to have the dock continue along the bottom, this will be an option.

    @ Sarcasm Siempre: A shot of the Music Player would be outside the influence of this mod.

    Thanks all for trying, I should have a fixed release tonight.
