Can someone explain to me why (Screenshots)
Can someone explain to me why WeatherBug can take screenshots of itself (on a non rooted device) with no problems but there are no apps out there that can take screenshots of any screen without the device being rooted?Galaxy Note II - Rooted - Black Status Bar w/WiFi Toggle

Some applications or launchers have the ability to take screen shots of just that screen, no other one. Not quite sure why it is like that, but without root you can only take shots of the screens that allow it.

I think it's stupid too, but OTOH who would be happy with an app that can grab a screen shot anytime you open a certain URL, or your email app, and upload it to a server in Moscow or Shenzhen? Allowing an application to take a picture of the screen at will is very insecure.ಠ_ಠ

It's a feature I used constantly on my WM devices, and my rooted Android phones. I don't want to plug my phone into a computer and go through a bunch of commands to get a simple screenshot, when a program could do it at the push of a button.
