Top 8 Screen Shot Apps for Windows Phone

Taking a screenshot was perhaps the most welcomed feature on Windows Phones as it allowed the users to capture their screen as and when needed. Getting a screenshot on Windows Phone is as simple as pressing the power button and the start button at the same time. On Windows Phone 8.1, however, all that you need to do is press the Power and Volume Up buttons simultaneously.
