How to Make an iPhone Screenshot

Want to take a screenshot of something on your iPhone or iPod touch? Press the Home button and Power button briefly at the same time, and an image of your screen will be saved to the Photos app (and will sync with iPhoto when you next connect). Don't hold the buttons too long or your device will either power down or reboot.

Rogue Amoeba has released Airfoil 4.8, adding the capability of controlling your audio streams using an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. The latest version of the popular network audio streaming app is now integrated with Rogue Amoeba’s new Airfoil Remote iOS app (which was acquired from 010dev and rebranded from its original name, Reemote), enabling you to switch sources, toggle speakers, and control playback from such audio players as Spotify, Rdio, and MOG.

The release also brings support for and Radium 3, updates the Instant On component to version 6.0.3 (which addresses an issue with the Amarra iTunes plug-in), adds labels to the Equalizer sliders, and improves the app’s memory of its visibility after a relaunch on OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. Airfoil has been updated to 64-bit status, and it now requires a minimum of 10.7 Lion (version 4.7.5 for 10.6 Snow Leopard user can still be found on Rogue Amoeba’s legacy software page). Support for the upcoming 10.9 Mavericks is still to come. ($25 new with a 20-percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 12.9 MB, release notes)
