Description of Problem:

Currently, to take a screenshot from the device, ddms is used. This breaks up the workflow a bit. It would be handy if there was a command within MonoDevelop to capture a screenshot without requiring ddms (or perhaps embedding ddms within MonoDevelop).

Would love to see this added as well... I've attached a screenshot showing this feature in Android Studio.

Looks like this *might* be fairly simple. At least for the screenshot -> http://blog.shvetsov.com/2013/02/grab-android-screenshot-to-computer-via.html
