Would it be possible in a future release to have a screenshot button on the simulator, that takes full res screenshots (not scaled). This would be great for submitting screenshots to the app store. Or even better, a macro that runs through the required (customizable list?) resolutions and saves them to a specified directory.
Nick -- thanks for the feedback. That is a feature we have considered in the past, but it has never made it into the product. We do provide the ability to set the simulator's background to any color you want, making it easier to set a screen shot with the simulated frame on top of a transparent background (e.g., pick an odd color, like lime green, that is not being used in your app and set the simulator window background to that color, then mark that color in a screenshot of that window as transparent).
Thank you for the response. I never considered including the frame in the screenshot. The custom chroma key is definitely a good idea!
Off topic but, after a little more playing around, I noticed that none of the simulated screen resolutions are correct. If I set the scaling to 100%, and then measure the actual content, they are about between 18% and 50% that of the device's actual resolution, depending on device.
Back on topic, devices are coming out with larger screens and a lot of people do not have the money to buy every device just to get a screenshot. Specifically, the iPhone 6s+ has a resolution of 1242x2208. I do not know about you, but I do not have a 4K monitor needed to get a screenshot that big. Luckily I have a 6s+ to test with and can get screenshots from it, but I do not have an iPad Pro, with a resolution of 2732 x 2048 (which, according to Apple, is not a targeted platform in the XDK builds).
Exciting new from Apple,
