InstaCamera Pro

InstaCamera Pro


InstaCamera is the quickest way to take a photo with your phone.
There's no long process: just press the widget and it takes a photo, then closes just as quickly.
.
## Why should I pay for this when there's a free version?
* This one's quicker. Like, seriously 'turbo computer-brains Skynet' quicker
* There are no ads
* You can choose the folder your images get saved in
* Because you want to say "awesome!" with money
.
## Why is it so awesome?
InstaCamera is perfect for when you want to take a photo but there's tons of pesky seals and squirrels and dogs around who you KNOW are gonna pop up in front to spoil the shot. And then they're all, 'oh, I was smelling something' but really they're jealous of your Android phone and opposable thumbs and want to ruin your whole day with their stupid faces. But you've got a super-fast camera app, so you've snapped a photo before they've even decided which face to pull. Take that, nature!
.
## Settings
Even though the app is super-simple, you can change how it works. Open the settings (the wrench icon on the widget) and you can make these adjustments:
* choose the folder your photos get saved in
* take multiple shots in a row (up to five)
* mute the shutter sound
* turn the "Image Saved" confirmation off
* change the photo resolution (default is max)
* set the focus mode (including fixed, infinite, auto and macro focus modes)
* set the shutter delay (from not-even-focusing to two seconds) in case your camera hardware needs extra time
* stay in camera mode after taking instant photos (then you touch the screen to take more, and back button to quit)
There are two widgets: the 1x1, which is just the camera button, and the 2x1, which has a camera button and a settings button.
.
## Permissions
We got it down to three permissions in this version:
Storage: the app needs to save photos on your phone.
Hardware controls: the app needs to access the camera.
Wakelock: the app needs enough time to save your photo if you turn the screen off before it's 100% done. (Not the scary, battery-draining kind of wakelock. The cool kind that's chilled out.)
Note: there's also a Google thing called Check License which doesn't show up in the permission screen, but it's in the app. It pings the Market every once in a while and says the app is legit.
.
## Feedback
If you like it or don't like it, say why in your review comment. That way we can make it better instead of just being sad and grumpy and trying one more time to get all the stars on Angry Birds but why doesn't it shoot in the right place, the stupid thing!?!? We made this app because it's slightly more awesome than what's out there already, so if you can use your words then it'll be better next time, we promise.

Recent changes:
- Improved saving service to fix issue where images would sometimes not save

very good camera app this is what i need, fast camera startup, but why the size of pro version is larger than the free one? and i dont feel the pro version has a faster startup speed, maybe u need some tweak to make it faster or can take a photo without preview screen or open app . thx

Great But the one complaint is that it isn't selectable as the default camera app?

Useless A camera app that can't take pictures. Nothing actually saves to internal or sd card when you take a picture with this app. Save your money. Edit: Latest update has made this app functional. Still not sure if it can be relied on yet.

Used to work... then it broke Worked in August 2013, then suddenly became glitchy by adding line artifacts on the edges of the files. Contacted the developer, no response. Please fix!

Great... When it works Loving the app when I first downloaded it but recently it intermittently won't save and other times takes hours before the image appears in its folder. No rhyme or reason for when it happens. Missed a few good pictures unfortunately.
