The task is to create screenshots for OI Countdown. These screenshots will be included in the OI Countdown web page and in the OI Countdown Market description. Screenshots should show various aspects of the application (multiple countdowns, labels for egg timer, laundry timer, cooking timer, ...). Use menu to showcase all options (e.g. set date). Examples in the screenshots should be generally accessible and internationally acceptable.

Screenshot dimensions should be 480x800 pixels, in portrait format (unless a feature requires landscape format), and based on the latest Android SDK emulator. File names should be labelled with application name and number and must not contain white spaces or special characters, e.g. OICountdown01.png, OICountdown02.png, .. For each screenshot there should be a short explanation in the readme.txt file suitable for end users. E.g. "OICountdown01.png: Long-press an item to open the context menu." - Screenshot shows open context menu.

Your solution should consist of a ZIP file including the screenshots and a readme.txt file which includes descriptions. If you don't have it yet, you first need to download and install the Android SDK (instructions). Get the latest apk files and install them using adb install from the command line. Use DDMS to take screenshots from the latest Android emulator.
