Appnimi Auto Screen Capture
For testing and security reasons, pictures of your desktop taken at the right moment can be key into solving a problem. Besides using your keyboard's print screen function, various applications like Appnimi Auto Screen Capture are available to automate the process.
Lightweight and easy to use
Your computer won't feel a thing from running the application, as it roughly takes about 1 Mb of your hard disk drive and minimum system resources. The main window is pretty compact, fitted with every available function so that you waste not time browsing through menus or tabs.
You are only required to select the output folder for screenshots, a couple of time options and hitting the “Start” button puts the process in motion.
Choose time and leave it running
Besides the destination folder, there are two main options you need to set before the application can do its job. In seconds, you are required to specify the capture interval, while another field asks you to input time in minutes for the duration of the process.
Unfortunately, there is no implemented function that allows you to schedule screen captures, so you need to run the application each time you need its help. Moreover, you cannot set it to launch at startup and have it resume activity in case your system accidentally restarts.
Neither can it be minimized to system tray, or have it secured with a password, thus not providing much use in monitoring someone's activity.
Taking everything into consideration, we can say that Appnimi Auto Screen Capture is a pretty lightweight and straightforward application that replaces your keyboard's print screen function. It does a good job overall, but several missing advanced features keep it far from being a pro.
