Default GearSpyCam - remote control you phone camera (formerly called Gear2Cam)

I have made a new app, which is waiting for Samsung approval at the moment, so it might take some days before available in the Samsung Apps Store.

The app is called "GearSpyCam", you can use it to control your phone camera using your Gear2 smartwatch:

====> The old app name was Gear2Cam, but the name has changed to GearSpyCam starting July 15.

+ preview the image from the phone camera on your Gear2 smartwatch
+ take (save) a picture in the phone gallery
+ use Spy-mode to have a new picture preview every 3 seconds.
+ use Spy-mode on the phone, to make the screen black, but still taking (preview) pictures.

The app consists of two parts, a phone part (android apk) and a Gear2 part (Tizen wgt), when installing the android app,
it will automatically install the gear2 part. It should show up in the Samsung Apps store, as soon as it approved.

It will not be free, it is a paid app, I set the introduction price to $1.
Depending on your way of purchase the price may very slightly.

You can see a preview video here:

GearSpyCam preview video

(sorry for the poor quality video, but it will give you an idea what to expect)


App description from Samsung Apps Store:

================================================== =

GearSpyCam
==========


Use your Gear 2 to control your phone's camera:

+ You can trigger the capture of an image with your phone from your Gear2.
+ you can preview the image on the Gear2
+ you can use it a a baby monitor
+ You can even use it in spy-mode (screen of the phone is black!)

Steps:

1. Start the GearSpyCam app on your phone and position it to take a picture
2. Start the GearSpyCam app on your Gear2 smartwatch to capture the image.

Nice for making group pictures with yourself included...

Have you read the 1st post carefully?

It's not yet in the Samsung Apps-store; it's waiting for approval by Samsung!

Read first before complaining!

I have no idea, I guess the Samsung apps in gear manager because it is a gear related app. We will see.
