Manual Screenshot for non-rooted phones

Sorry if this has been posted before. I did a quick search but didn't come up with anything.

Background:
Every time I log in, I see the screenshot button. I try it once and a while but each time get reminded that my phone is not rooted.

Feature Request:
Keep the rooted screen shot method but also put in a method for manually capturing screenshots.

Method:
This was inspired by how TeamViewer QuickSupport enabled screenshots for their Android app.
Since the app did not have permission to preform a screen shot, it would prompt the user to manually take a screenshot on their phone. (For my Motorola phone, it is holding Power and Volume down). It would detect the screenshot (via the new photo saved perhaps), transfer and display the screenshot.

tldr version:
Prompt the user to take a screen shot, detect screen shot, and transfer and display.

Benefits:
While you still have to manually take screen shots with the phone, you can see real time updates / previews of the screenshot you just took on your PC and have easy access to sharing and saving etc.

Other comments on this are welcome.

Will take a look at TeamViewer. Thanks for your suggestion. We'll consider it :)

For now, you may take a screenshot on your phone mannually, and view it in Photos on http://web.airdroid.com
