The next option is Text, using this option the user can easily write anything on the screenshot that he/she wishes to. The last option is Draw, using this option the user gets a free hand to draw on a screenshot using a finger. In this option, the app offers various brush sizes and color options. Now when the editing is complete users can either send the screenshot using other apps, Save the screenshot to device storage, or can delete it.
