Taking screenshots with a mobile phone is as easy as pressing the power button and the volume up or down button at the same time, although if you need to take a lot of screenshots, the serial function of your mobile may be too little for you.
Luckily, on Google Play there are countless apps to help you take screenshots, from applications that can capture scrolling screens to others that add new modes to launch a capture or those that allow you to edit them.
Some layers of Android customization allow you to do scrolling screenshots, But not all. If you don’t have it on your mobile, an easy way to have the functionality on any Android mobile is with Longscreenshot.
LongScreenshot is a simpler solution than other similar applications that we will see below, because it is you who must make the displacement while the application takes good note of everything that happens on the screen. When finished, try to stitch the image together as best you can to achieve a long screen shot.
The concept of Longshot is exactly the same as the previous application: take scrolling screenshots that cover, for example, all a chat conversation. This time you can use both manual and automatic scrolling.
With the automatic scrolling, you press a button and the application begins to scroll by itself until you tell it to stop. When finished you can see the result and adjust the cut points to get the best long shot possible.

Screenple is a complete application of screenshots, which basically collects in a single app many of the functions that we find in other applications on this list, such as scrolling captures.
With Screenple you can start a new capture with various methods: a floating button, a long touch on the mobile home button, from the notification or with a combination of physical buttons on your mobile. The application includes its own editor with which you can add texts, shapes and scribbles, as well as its own manager of screenshots so that you can keep them all well ordered.
Screen Master is another app that has a bit of everything when it comes to screenshots. For starters, it allows you to start a screenshot in three ways: from the notification, with a floating button, and shaking the mobile (you can set the sensitivity).
An interesting feature of Screen Master is that you can capture entire web pages, with movement included and automatically. The application has its own image editor to add texts and arrows and allows you to manually combine images vertically or horizontally, manually choosing the cut point.

Something simpler is Screenshot Assistant, an application whose purpose is simply to allow you to take screenshots with a long tap on mobile home button. That is, it replaces the Google Assistant.
The application configured as Assistant on mobile has certain privileges with respect to other applications, so you can use this method to take screenshots in applications that do not allow it. It will not work for all applications with blocked captures, but it will work for some. The application is very simple and does not have any other additional functions.
In case you’re lacking in quirky ways to take a screenshot, here’s one more: tapping on a quick setting in the Android notification panel. That is just what you will achieve with Screenshot Tile, which requires Android Oreo or higher.
With Screenshot Tile you can take screenshots in any application, being able to choose if you want activates after a countdown and the file format. In addition, you can integrate it with Tasker to automate the taking of screenshots as you want.

Screenshot Quick is another simple application with which you can make screenshots with a floating button which you can put where it suits you best and which obviously does not appear in the resulting screenshot.
From the Screenshot Quick settings you can change the size of the floating button, activate the screenshot after shaking the mobile and make some additional adjustments. After taking a screenshot you can trim, delete or share it with other applications.

Image Combiner technically is not an application specially designed for screenshots, although it may be useful if you are looking for a way to put together several screenshots side by side, not necessarily to create a long shot.
Image Combiner allows you to combine multiple images vertically or horizontally, optionally adding a border between them. The application is very simple to use and does its job perfectly.
Many of the above applications include their own image editor, but not all. If you are looking for a simple editor to add texts or indications on a screenshot (or any image), you will find it in iMarkup.
With iMarkup you can create collages, draw on images, add shapes, texts and arrows over images easily. As a curiosity, it also allows you to add directions on a map or on a web page.

Screenshot Ultimate is a somewhat old application specialized in taking screenshots, so it may not work correctly on modern terminals. On the other hand, it is a good option for older terminals.
With Screenshot Ultimate, you can take a screenshot by any imaginable method: shaking the mobile, from notifications, blowing into the mobile microphone, connecting and disconnecting to the current, using proximity or ambient lighting sensor, with a web server and more. Not all of them work on all mobiles, however.
