With Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) or any newer version, you can decline a phone call while sending the caller a custom text message. This is not a new feature, but the latest OS has different settings. To customize auto-response texts, go to Phone > Settings > Quick Responses. Tap one of the pre-written responses to change it. When your phone rings, you would normally slide the circle to the right to answer the call or to the left to send the caller to voice mail. To send a response text, slide the circle upward to the message icon and let go. From there, you can select a pre-written message or write a new one.

Screen shot on the Galaxy S4 is power + home, not power + volume down.
Onavo Count and the newer Androids both allow the user to restrict an app to wifi-only. Very useful when using one of those limited AT&T or Verizon data plans.

re: 10 Hidden Android Tips, Tricks
Screen captures on android may be trickier, but at least they are image files and not the iphone movie files. Why does a screen shot need to play as a short movie file?
