Have you designed a really cool Springfield that you want to show off? Wish you could take screenshots of your town, but just don’t know how? Well the Addicts Team is here to help! While every phone is different I figured we could cover some of the more common phones here. Note: If you don’t see your phone listed the best thing you can do is a Google Search and check out how to screenshot with your specific device.
Let’s get started!
We’ll start with the very first platform to carry Tapped Out and that’s iOS. Since every Apple device uses the same method to screenshot you can apply this to any iOS device you use whether it’s an iPhone 4, an iPhone 5, or an iPad. Here’s what you do…
To take a screenshot with your iOS device simply press and hold the Home and Power buttons at the same time. If you’ve got the timing done correctly your screen will flash and you’ll hear the camera shutter sound! Note: Screenshots on iOS devices will be automatically saved in your Camera Roll.
Android phones can be a bit confusing when it comes to taking screenshots. For some phones it’s just like the iPhone, where you press and hold the Home + Power button, & others you have to press and hold the volume and power button..and then there are some Android phones where it’s a totally different method all together. Basically it comes down to this though…if your phone has a home button (similar to the iOS home button) you’ll use a combination of the home + power button to screenshot, but if your phone does not have a home button, instead just the lit up icon (like the HTC 1 and Motorola phones), use the volume + power button combination to screenshot. I’m going to try and cover some of the more popular Android phones/tablets here. Again if you don’t see your device try doing a Google search on taking screenshots with your specific device.
Samsung Phones/Tablets Only (Galaxy, Note, DOES NOT work on the Odyssey)
Similar to the iPhone, to take a screenshot with one of these devices simply press and hold the Home and Power buttons at the same time. If you’ve got the timing correct you’ll hear the camera shutter sound. Note: Screenshots on these devices will automatically save to your Gallery.
All other Android Smartphones/Tablets (Motorla, HTC, Casio, LG, Samsung Odyssey, etc):
To take a screenshot with these devices simply press and hold the power and volume buttons at the same time. Again, if you’ve got the timing correct you’ll hear the camera shutter sound.
If none of the above methods work for your device, you may have to download an App from the Play Store dedicated to taking screenshots.
