I'm trying to get an image of the entire screen as the user sees it. The following code should work however it will only work in the simulator. What do I have to do to get this to work on a device running iOS 8.1?

UIView *snapshot = [[UIScreen mainScreen] snapshotViewAfterScreenUpdates:YES];
CGSize outputSize = CGSizeMake([UIScreen mainScreen].bounds.size.width, [UIScreen mainScreen].bounds.size.height);
UIGraphicsBeginImageContextWithOptions(outputSize, NO, 0);
[snapshot drawViewHierarchyInRect:CGRectMake(0.0, 0.0, outputSize.width, outputSize.height) afterScreenUpdates:YES];
UIImage *img = UIGraphicsGetImageFromCurrentImageContext();

Happy to try alternative strategies but the key is I want it as the user sees it - keyboards and all.
