Capture screenshots of entire pages with Barry for iOS

Grab more than what's on your iPhone's screen with this helpful screen-capture app.

This may be a post only a tech blogger could love, but if you have the need to take screenshots of entire, full-length Web pages on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, please continue reading.

It's easy to take a screenshot on an iOS device by pressing the sleep/wake button and Home button simultaneously. But what if you want to capture an entire Web page, beyond what is merely visible on the screen? Enter Barry Webpage Screenshot, a 99-cent app that lets you easily capture entire Web pages.

There are two ways to capture an entire Web page with Barry. You can launch the app and use its built-in browser to navigate your way to a site. The button in the bottom-left corner lets you switch between Barry's browser and a list of your saved images. To capture a Web page, simply tap the Capture button at the bottom of your screen.

From the Saved Images view, tap on an image to load it. Once its loaded, tap the button in the upper-right corner to view your sharing options: Dropbox, Save to Camera Roll, Email, Twitter, and Copy Image.

A better method for using Barry is to install a bookmarklet in Safari, which lets you punt the current page you are viewing in Safari to Barry for your capturing purposes, saving you the step of having to enter a URL in Barry's browser. Barry gives you explicit directions on how to install this bookmarklet. To access them, tap the Settings button in the lower-right corner when viewing the Saved Images screen. Tap the bookmarklet button and follow the two-step process of creating and editing a bookmark to open a Safari page in Barry. (Barry calls this a three-step process, but the third step merely features Barry thanking you for your efforts.)

There are three other options in settings. You can link to your Dropbox account, choose between saving images as PNG or JPEG files, and decide whether you'd like Barry to autosave to your Camera Roll.
