Hello XDA Members!!


I love the front facing camera on my phone but hate how there is no flash on the front. Well i made an app that would allow you to shed a little light on the situation. :P

Its quite simple to use!

Find the app 3F in your app drawer and click it.
It will launch your default camera app
Now you will see a button in the center of your screen with "Ready?" in the center.

Once you have finished setting any special effects for configurations for the camera, click the "Ready?" button.

Now your screen will seem to have a whitish film over it. You are then instructed to click the shutter button.

Now the screen is entirely white, this is the flash. After you clicked the shutter button, there will be a red dot visible signifying where the shutter button is.

Now all you need to do is click the red dot to take the actual picture. Once the picture is taken you can review it, however, if you hit "discard" you will need to leave the app and restart 3F to have the flash again.

But thats it! Simple!

I am gonna try to make an xposed module to further simplify this so there won't be any further setup. Simply open your camera app, and another button will appear on your screen, this button will toggle 3F. Once you hit the shutter button, it will automatically show the flash or not depending on your settings.

Hope you guys enjoy this! Hit thanks!! Donate if you feel generous! Thanks everyone!

Anyone having issues finding pics, the app "Quickpic" is a great photo gallery replacement that finds everything on your phone. Been using it for years.

For me, they save in default DCIM folder. Works well, looking forward to it being developed
