Lets play with Websnap now!
- After opening the app you will basically see just a blank box with the title Snapshot List. Next to it is a button which will do our work. Click on that button and it will open a new interface.
- The new interface is where all the magic happens. It is basically a simple browser. Copy the url of the website you’d want to take screenshot of and paste the url in the box where it says ‘Enter an URL’ and load it.
- In my case I have used in.yahoo.com as the test website. Entering the url opens up the mobile version of Yahoo. IF the website you’re loading doesn’t has mobile version it would even then be fine because the app can take snapshot of any webpage whether it be responsive or not.
- Once your website has been shown; tap on the ‘Select’ button right to the big red ‘Snap’ button. Selecting it will not do anything visually but after tapping on it tap on the top element of the webpage which in our case is the logo once. This will show selected element is ‘Yellow’ color now to take whole page snapshot start tapping on ‘Expand’ sitting on the top right corner of the app. Tap it until whole webpage is selected.
- After you’ve selected the entire web page tap on the red button i.e the snap button and your snapshot will be shown to you. Just like the one shown below.
