Q&A

Is Falcon on Maven Central?

Yes! Starting with version 2.2.0.

Why another screenshot library?

There are plenty of great screenshot libraries, but all of them miss Dialogs, Toasts and other extra windows in Activity. Not this one!

Why is Falcon crashing on Android 9 or higher?

You are most likely not using the latest version of Falcon. Android 9 is supported from Falcon version 2.1.0. Some changes were needed since we use some reflection to make the screenshots possible.

Spoon Compat - Deprecated

Here you can find the instructions to use Falcon 2.1.1 with Spoon. Spoon Compat support was discontinued as Spoon was last released in 2017. The Spoon Compat artifacts are present on jcenter only.
