- Toggle video flash on/off

How to Install:

1. To display the widget on your homescreen, enter the menu and select Add or Personalize. Alternatively touch the screen and hold it until the menu appears.

2. Navigate to Widgets » EZ Cam Widget and it should now be displayed on your current homescreen.

3. Start the EZ Cam Widget application from your Applications menu or from the button on the widget and navigate to the Settings tab. Change the camera settings to suit your needs.

* Note: EZ Cam Widget automatically detects the devices highest video settings, however the method provided by Android to do this has proved slightly unreliable on certain devices. A few devices used while testing the application showed this problem, these were the Samsung Galaxy S2, HTC Desire HD and HTC Desire S. With all of these devices the override resolution option needs to be used to set a supported recording resolution (see the known issues section below).

Please be aware that the camera hardware is different for almost every device, this makes it difficult to create an application that is compatible with every Android phone. If you have any problems with the application please email us with a detailed explanation of your problem and the Android device you are using. We take any problems with our applications very seriously and will help you solve your problem as soon as possible.

Known Issues:

A few devices have known issues and can be solved by using the manual resolution override option. Here is a list of known fixes:

- HTC Desire S - Ensure a supported video resolution is selected and the manual resolution override option is enabled.

- HTC Desire HD - Video will work but will record at lower resolution, this can be set to 1280 x 720 manually.

- Samsung Galaxy S2 - Problem with recording video at high resolutions, ensure manual resolution is set (max. 720 x 480).

Recent changes:
- New 2x1 and individual 1x1 image and video widgets added.
- Bug Fixes.

Crashes on settings change The Lite version worked fine. When I change any settings the widget force closes. but on the second time it will work there after but it is using default settings. I didn't want to use the flash so I go into the app settings and turn off flash and then try again, it force closes and then on a second try it works fine but still flashes. It will do this with any settings change. Please fix or refund.
