AniMoby Introduces New Screen Capture Tool

The makers of AniMoby for iPads, iPhones, and Android Tablets recently developed and released a new, free screen-capturing tool for Windows operating systems. 

The tool, called AniMoby SC, simplifies the screen-capturing process for Windows users by enabling them to grab/save selected parts of the screen from just a simple stroke of the keyboard.

AniMoby SC is a great tool for those who use the AniMoby app on their tablets or smartphones, as it allows for the easy capture of images from the screen that later can be used in AniMoby-created lessons, projects, and tutorials.

A quick tutorial on how to use AniMoby SC is below:

1.) Go to the website

2). Click onto install on Windows (the icon is in the red circle in the screen shot above) and select your destination folder. In this tutorial, we used Dropbox, so AniMoby SC is saved within the folder entitled Dropbox. Within this folder, you can find the AniMoby SC folder - as seen below. 

3.) An icon was created on your desktop:

4.) When opening Animoby SC, you can either use it in its original mode by clicking OK or you can set new preferences, including your own shortcut commands, if you desire.

5.) Once a notification appears indicating it’s active, you can start using it.

6.) To take a screenshot, simply type the desired commands that are described below. If you only want to capture a certain part of the screen, enter the Ctrl + Shift + 2 command and wait until the cursor turns into a cross. Click and drag selecting the desired area. When you release, the screen capture is automatically saved in the destination folder you set.

7.) To capture the entire screen, type Ctrl + Shift + 3 command and the content will be automatically saved to the destination folder set.

8.) There is another command that allows you to capture a certain part of the screen (Ctrl + Shift + 4), but it turns into a window and allows you to save in a different folder of your choice, if you prefer.

9.) After capturing all the screens, import them from the Dropbox to Animoby iPad and/or Animoby iPhone and create your project. Have fun!

  1. The SC animoby helps me a lot, because the Windows print screen is not as efficient as this program. I recommend!
