Default Camera delete your foto if you don't use Google Plus!

I'm on 4.4.2 and I've found a very serious bug that made ​​me lose a couple of photo, here's how to reproduce it:
  1. Assume that you don't use Google+ and you keep it disabled on your phone (manage application > google+ > disable), so you don't have the Photos app in your drawer too
  2. Open the camera
  3. Swipe right in photos
  4. Look at topleft, you'll find the Photos icon, THIS WORK AS A NO-CONFIRMATION-DELETE button!

I've read about Photos becomes the default application swiping from camera in 4.4.1, so I may expect an error / force close but I could never imagine that...

Can anyone confirm this?

I fell victim to this yesterday! Very annoyed. I accidentally double tapped and deleted 2 photos in rapid succession when I only wanted to delete 1. I hope they patch this in the next update. Otherwise I'm going to have to try and remember not to delete photos from the Camera and go into Photos afterwards and do it there.

Update: Looked into recover options. Didn't find anything that will help me get back the already deleted file, but found something that will save me going forward. Already tested and confirmed recovery of a photo deleted directly from the Camera.

Installed Dumpster - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...loota.dumpster
No root required, used the default setup and options.

Just download an alternate gallery like QuickPic. The Photos app is horrible, anyway.

This issue is from within the Camera app itself though, not Photos or Gallery.

Default Just delete Google+

I assume you don't use Google+ from the title so just delete the app (Google+) If You can't then it's a system app so you have to download something like "NoBloat" or "System App Uninstaller" so that you can remove Google+ Completely.

Deleting Google+ from system/app does Not resolve the problem. I wish it did.
