I like the app so far but just wondering is there a way to make the focus for video to be continuous instead of auto? I notice once it runs it does a blur kind of refocus effect every second and responds slow while zooming in compared to autofocus being off

@jimmod:

Can you please add an option for audio only (some compressed format ie: amr/aac/mp3) recording on the next version?

Would it be possible to make a donate version without network permission available on Playstore?

hi jimmy congratulations to version 0.3. I had to reward your assiduity with the donate version, which I bought.

can be made in the new version pictures when the display is turned off? (not the blackscreen mode)

as we know android kills the apps that stay too long in the background. what can we do to prevent this?

perhaps are options for root user helpful?


best regards

I have something to suggest, I think a more discreet widget is essential... a friend of mine saw this power looking thing and spotted it right away and started asking ''what if I click this?'' and stuff... I think, maybe a battery meter, or a clock for example, or both, would be much more discreet!

oh and I love the new interface and icon!

Thank you for the feedback & support
Later I could add more option to select the icon used for widget. Noted.

I was testing the two focus in V0.3
Somehow I feel continuous didn't really work well on some device. Will test more on this.

Audio recording didn't really the spy camera focus, but I will add it on my list to make sure I remember this request.
Network permission is used for the auto email sending, so I cannot remove it.

Hello, thank you for the support.
V0.3 should work even you turn off your display, do you have trouble with it?
Since it running fully in background it should still run and Android OS should kill it (except it really in low memory)

Exclamation Latest Update...
I have been using this app for about 8 months now and it has been amazing. I am able to capture those moments with my child that I would otherwise not be able to if I was using the phone like a camera.

This latest update to version 0.3 (310) has rendered the app unusable unfortunately on my HTC One. I like that it adds the options to the notification bar, but I can no longer take a photo with the app. When I first start it I will see the camera view, but clicking capture just changes the bottom menu to say "capture" and "stop"; of which only stop is clickable. When I am in black mode nothing happens at all. When I try burst nothing happens either. When I leave black mode the image from the camera stops being shown in the middle of the screen. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling both the donate and the regular version with no change, I have tried changing the path and resolution, which camera it is shooting from, and basically every option available.

Hope you get this fixed soon because it is one great app you have here!

I recently upgraded from Samsung Galaxy S3 to S5 and tried to run both 0.2 and the 0.3 beta version. It appeared that in both versions, the capturing speed of pictures is much slower in S5 (from ~0.5 sec to 1-2 sec) when pressing the volume button for continuous capturing. It is strange that the native camera app can take at max 2 pics per second but not in SC-OS. The function of the volume button also does not match with the settings. When pressing the volume down button, it still takes pictures but volume is tuning down at the same time. It would be great if you address this issue in the coming release of this marvelous software!

Hi, can you send me email via setting - send feedback.
When you click capture it should change to capture & stop until it finished capturing. If it stuck on that most likely it stuck when capturing, can you try different image resolution (example from high-res to low-res) to see which resolution that having issue.
If you able to see image preview, low-res image capture should be ok.

When you are in black mode, do you mean when you touch the screen it doesn't trigger image capture? I think similar like above issue.

Replied it.
I still cannot find a way to create directory on Kitkat external SDCard
For creating new images it can be done using Mediastore trick (although I'm not sure how compatible this 'hack' on various phones)
