Questions and Answers

Do you need to touch the screen and sweep/swipe it, or just do the gesture in air?

In order to take screenshots using the Sweeping gesture, you do need to touch the screen to take the screenshots. Position your hand like you are doing a Karate chop and place it on the right part of the screen. Once it comes in contact with your touchscreen, quickly swipe it to the left. Your device will detect that as the "take a screenshot" gesture, and will perform that action. If it doesn't work, try it again, this time, from left to right. Also, make sure that you have enabled Screen capture through Palm motion at Home > Menu > Settings > Device > Motions and Gestures > Palm motion, and then tap on the switch button on Capture screen to turn it on.
