$650,000 Stretch Goal: Introducing the "long-press-take-screenshot-draw-share-with-friends-be-happy"

97 comments

Hello all!

As promised yesterday, we have a new stretch goal for you today. We're still trying to figure out a name for it, if you have any ideas share them in the comments...for now it'll be known as the "long-press-take-screenshot-draw-share-with-friends-be-happy" feature.

What the "long-press-take-...thing" does is take a screen capture of your phone when you press your Pressy, allows you to draw over the screen whatever you want, and share it when you let go of the button. Take a look at the animation in case that didn't make sense: (if you're watching this in your email press the link to see the video)

What is it good for you ask?

  • Highlight a sentence in an email/article/message and send it back
  • Mark a specific item/person in an image
  • Write a note to yourself over a document
  • Drawing mustaches over public figures...obviously
  • Whatever you think of...make sure to share your ideas!

The feature will be optional of course, so you will be able to turn it off if you wish, or assign a different press combination to it...

That's it, we'll release this cool feature with the Pressy app if we reach the $650,000 mark. To be honest we already started working on it, but everybody loves stretch goals :)

We're counting on you guys! Thanks!

      You could call it, "Pressy-Pixel", "Pixel-Pressy" or a "Pressy-Doodle".
      Also, "Pressy-Snap", "Pressy- Live", or "Pressy-Sketch", "Pressy-Cap" "Pressy-Grab".

      I think the Pressy name is awesome, But I think anything that comes after Pressy can't end with the same sound. It would make it sound cutesy, when you really need a more neutral feature name. This will make it easier to appeal to both sexes. Pressy is awesome, Cutesy it's not. That's all I got. Hopefully you will find some great ideas in the comments section!!

      I'm really loving what you've shown us lately!

      I don't have a better name but rather a slight concern/another thought.

      On some phones the placement of the headphone jack would make keeping Pressy held with the screen oriented correctly while drawing on the screen rather difficult.

      It would be useful if we could configure the workflow to be more like:
      Long-press takes screenshot and enters LPTSDSWFBH's drawing mode.
      The next short-press shares the image and ends the LPTSDSWFBH action.

      I suppose this means we'd need the ability to create context-aware actions.

      I'm sure you've thought of this and are frequently considering how Pressy's placement on any device impacts it's usefulness.

      ...aaand you made me update my pledge again. Now I want ones for the tablets I plan on getting for my wife and myself, along with the ones I already wanted for our phones.

      Yes, I know we could just switch them between devices, but it's less wear & tear to just leave them in the device at all times.

      Will this work on pre-Android 4.1 phones? It used to be a root-only feature to do screenshots. My Note 2 already does screenshot-annotate-send, but having a button would certainly be easier than the home-power button combination!

      got a spontaneous idea!
      use your "Stop-Time" fonction,
      think of it, illustrate it and un-press to go back to reality and share it with your friends.

      I like the feature, but you're right the name is awful. Really, it should be: "press-hold-take-screenshot-draw-release-share-with-friends-be-happy." A much better, more accurate name in my humble opinion.

      If that's too long winded for some, why not "Pressy Screen Share"?

      Or, melding Dak's suggestion with mine: "Pressy Scribble Screen Share"?

      Either one could be abbreviated as P.S.S.(S.). And if people really love it, they might form a British band and end up writing a song about it: http://www.youtube.com/watch…
