Well, that's where Scrapbook enters the picture! Using (not-really-)patented shenanigan technology™, this app lets you peek at all the screenshots you have saved on your Playdate, straight from the device! No extra setup necessary.

Rev Checker

This one-time tool lets you see your Playdate's hardware revision. What's that supposed to mean? Hopefully nothing — it's just a CPU swap that was performed in the middle of pre-orders. But it's handy to know for sure which camp you fall into, for the odd debug. The website has more info about the chip swap, as well as the app download.
