Camera [APP][3.1+] Friend Brush

Hi everyone,

I have recently published a new app called Friend Brush. Using this app you can create collages of smaller photos that look like a single photo when seen from distance (or zoomed out). You can pick your tiles from various sources, namely Facebook, Google+, or your device's gallery. For the big picture, you can either choose from your gallery or simply take a photo with the camera. Below is a sample of what can be done using this app:





I would highly appreciate any feedback, especially on stability and user experience of the app.

Download from Google Play
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ps.friendbrush

In case there are some issues in the public release, you can try bleeding-edge beta versions of the app using one of the following options:

OPTION 1:
Become a Google Play beta tester for the app. I have enabled beta testing for XDA Android App Testers Community.

OPTION 2:
Download the testing version from my official website. This version has all the basic features of the app, plus a report button you can use to contact me about a bug.

If you like the app, please make me extremely happy by tipping this to XDA Portal!

Friend Brush has just been updated. Now everyone can choose large tile photos. I also found some bugs in the previous versions and fixed them.

Great, thanks for sharing your work. Really nice idea to honor your friends with being a part of a new picture.
Please avoid sending me PM with technical questions, place a post in the proper thread instead.

I have uploaded a new version to beta channels. I have tried to fix previous bugs. All the new features of 1.2.x are still in beta and not open to public. So, you can have first-hand access to those features (and help me perfect them). Thanks!

Thank you for your interest and your idea! Feedback like this helps me understand better what exactly users are looking for. Friend Brush was originally using just friend profile pictures for tiles (hence the name), and using photo albums was a late decision. So that part is still not mature enough. I will think about your idea to incorporate it in a user friendly way. Might not be in the next update, but for sure I will do it in the future. And if you like the app, I would be really glad if you rated it as I'm currently being stormed by haters on Google Play.

Thanks again!

Not sure if this is ROM related or app related.. When searching through for a creation picture it just reverts back to previous screen.
