Due to the, ahem, problematic, push towards removing save dialogues in apple software, I've found myself unable to determine where Screen shots are saved in the IOS 5.1 simulator.


They are not appearing on my desktop, nor downloads, documents or pictures, and the ~/Library/Application Support/Shared/Xcode/Screenshots/ directory is empty.


Nor do they come up in "All My Files".


So.... I'm mystified. I just cant determine where they are


Any clues?


I honestly don't understand the rational for removing the save dialogue in this instance. Screenshots do not benefit from versioning, so "TIme machining" them doesnt make logical sense, and none of the standard locations seem to be used. Pictures would strike me as a logical place to put them, as perhaps would be Documents. But neither of these are used. As someone who does useability consulting, I'll confess that for all my love of apple products, this gets a "tut tut" out of me.


A hint here would be very helpful!
