Hi folks,

Is it technically possible to create an app that can take a screenshot 
of the home screen or device viewport?

It is for the purpose of creating something technologically similar to a 
water screen saver.




It is possible in rooted Android phones, via the NDK, with 
/dev/graphics/fb0 .

Any help appreciated.
