A couple of days ago I showed you the simplest way to take screenshots, using Google Now On Tap. This doesn’t save the actual screenshot to your phone and avoids clutter, making it ideal for sharing something with a buddy on the go. But if you’re like me and you like things to be all neat and tidy you’ll want a way to add a touch of awesome to your screenshots. If you don’t mind a bit of extra work in doing so, and if you don’t feel the need to take screenshots with a professional dSLR, check out Screener!

Screener is an app that “wraps” your screenshots in your favorite phone, or even your own one. There are dozens of phones available to choose from, and if you want to wrap a screenshot into an Android Wear watch skin, that’s available as well. If you don’t always change between types of phones you can set your very own one as a favorite and have it be the first to show up.

Screenshot-ception. Editing the image in Screener.

And once you choose the right wrapper for your screenshot just tap in its center and choose the image (you need to have taken the screenshot already), and you have a couple of options to tweak it to your liking. You can even add a custom background for the phone, turning a simple screenshot into something that resembles a marketing poster for an app, or even a phone.

QUICK NOTE: Free firmware downloads are made possible thanks in part to OVH Hosting & Dedicated Servers – Updato's #1 choice for hosting and storage solutions! Show your support and check 'em out.

After you’re done editing the screenshot you can save it from the top right button, and the image will be available in your media gallery in seconds – it takes just a moment for it to render. I’ve been using this method to showcase my screenshots for a while now, and I have to say I’m pretty pleased with the outcome; short of actually taking a quality photo of your phone, this is the best way to share quality screenshots.
