Learn How To Take Scrolling Screenshot On Android And iOS


One thing that has caused problems for me is that the inbuilt screenshot tool in Android only covers the things that are displayed on the screen. What if someone wants to cover a complete web page in a single image which requires the page to scroll down. But sadly, the screenshot
tool’s capabilities fall short here.
Still, the road to find something that can help us take long shots or scrolling screenshots on Android isn’t that long and hard to traverse. So, is there any app that stitches screenshots together? The answer is Yes. There are a couple of ways you can cover the undisplayed area also.

How do I take scrolling screenshot on Android and iOS? – Continous long screenshots

Take the long road

One of the easiest but tedious ways to take scrolling screenshots on Android is to capture multiple screenshots and combine them using some image editing tool on your PC. Here are a few names you can consider while editing.
I did the same a couple of times in the past on my PC as it was the quickest and only way I could think of when I didn’t have some app at hand. In fact, not even a smartphone.

Stich & Share: big screenshot

Platform: Android
Nowadays, most of the screenshot work is done on smartphones powered by Android and iOS operating systems. And there are apps available which can help users overcome the shortcomings of the inbuilt screenshot tool on their devices.
Stitch & Share is also an app which you can use to take a scrolling screenshot on your Android device for free. Installing the app is quite easy; all you need is to visit Google Play.
During the initial days, you might not find the app comfortable to use. But being patient for a while would improve your precision when taking those long screenshots.
What the app basically does is it automatically takes screenshots as you scroll down and stitches them together. Stitch & Share can combine the screenshots you have manually taken. However, while taking screenshots, you would have to make sure that the two consecutive shots overlap to some extent to make things easier for the app.
One of the downsides of this app, and for others in the list, is you can’t take horizontal screenshots. For instance, if you want to cover your entire home screen or Menu in one image, scrolling sideways would add the image at the bottom.

Stich It! – Screenshot Editor

Platform: Android, iOS
Although Stitch & Share is not available for iOS, App Store is not a barren land when it comes to apps for scrolling screenshots. The best thing about Stich It! is its availability for both Android and iOS operating systems.
Stich It! offers a simple-to-use interface for the screenshots you have taken regularly, using the inbuilt tool, and attach them. You can align the screenshots by cropping them accordingly.
It comes in both paid ($2.99) and free options. One of the drawbacks of the free version is you can only combine three images when making your scrolling screenshots.

Tailor – Automatic Screeshot Stiching

Platform: iOS
Scrolling Screenshot 2
For the lazy ones wanting to automate every thing, Tailor is the scrolling screenshot app you can use on your iOS device. You need to do nothing except capturing the screenshots like you normally do. Open the Tailor app afterward, and your scrolling screenshot would be waiting for you.
Despite the ease offered by the app, I didn’t find it efficient enough. As it failed to include some of my screenshots when joining the images. Still, it’s fine.
The app being all automatic has a couple of downsides. It fetches the screenshots on its own. So, you can’t edit the order of images when the scrolling screenshot is created. Another thing is if you delete an automatically created scrolling shot, the app won’t generate it again.
One possible workaround for these shortcomings is to delete the original images and capture them again.
People having the allergy from adverts can buy the paid version for $2.99. Else, you can use Tailor for free.

So, these were some of the apps you can use to capture continuous long screenshots on your Android and iOS devices. I hope I could extend this list with more names in the future.
