I snap so many screenshots on my iOS devices each day that even the world’s most renowned mathematicians would need a calculator to keep count, but the situation is intensified when I capture tall vertical interfaces; doing so often requires snapping several screenshots that will need to be stitched together in photo-editing software afterward.
If you’ve ever been in a similar predicament, then you know what a pain this can be and you’ll be ecstatic to know there’s another way. A free jailbreak tweak dubbed BigShotJb (iOS 11) by iOS developers tapthaker and Julio Verne lets you capture tall vertical screenshots just like the one in the example above with minimal effort.
Upon installing BigShotJb (iOS 11), you can assign it to an Activator action either from the Activator app or Activator preference pane in the Settings app:
Once configured, you can visit a tall vertical interface that you want a screenshot of, such as the primary Settings page, and invoke the Activator action you configured before. After performing the action, BigShotJb (iOS 11) displays the following prompt to let you know it worked:
You’ll find the resulting screenshot in your iPhone or iPad’s Camera Roll along with the rest of your screenshots and images.
Albeit niche, BigShotJb (iOS 11) can be a lifesaver in certain situations. For what it’s worth, I’ve used it quite a few times in some of the jailbreak tweak reviews I publish on iDownloadBlog; it might also come in handy if you’re trying to show someone how to do something in a text message or email.
If you’re interested in trying BigShotJb (iOS 11), then you can download it for free from Julio Verne’s beta repository in Cydia. The tweak works with all jailbroken iOS 11 devices and the source code is available on GitHub for those interested in learning about how it works.
