What is Capture?

This guide is for app developers. If you are a tester, please visit the tester guide for more information about testing apps under development.

The Capture feature is currently only available on Android apps.


The Capture feature allows you to take screenshots to easily submit bug reports and other errors. When taking a screenshot of an app under development, the DeployGate app automatically obtains app and device information. This information is shared between developers and testers to assist with debugging.
