This is only possible on a rooted phone. If you plan on publishing the application it will not work. Aside from that, I do not believe it providing full code solutions but I will point you in the right direction
For taking a screenshot programmatically:
http://google.com

For interacting with URLs

I will have it for debugging purposes and the app will not be published.

Comparable to DDMS which is the manual way, the follow link describes the code required. It works by capturing an image of the view and in this specific case sends an email with the image.

Hi jamppi,

See below tutorial for take screenshot programmatically and send email. You can learn there how to capture bitmap of screenshot and save this bitmap image to sd card. Rather than email at last step you can upload to your server api.

Let me know if you have any question regarding this.

Thanks & Regards,
