  • It is similar to the above app. But in my usage, It is easy to use, because of the Touch Assistive menu. When you tap that Logo, It will Pop-up with the option for capture.

Touch Master App

  • Download TouchMaster (Assistive Touch) App from Play Store.
  • There are a lot of Touch Assistants available, But they are loaded with some unwanted features. This app can make our work done with less storage.


If you are a Regular user, I advise you to use Physical keys, because you will rarely use the Screenshot feature. Palm swipe may take accidental screenshots. But, If you are a Developer or some techie guy who use several screenshots, use In-Built Palm Gesture or Play Store Apps. If you install from third-party sites, Always check the Background activities to avoid your Data stolen.
