Please contact us if you have any issues with this App, we will give you a refund and later notify you once we've fixed the problem.


● I’ve purchased the App, but I can’t download it.

Please check that you have good Internet connectivity and retry. If the problem persists, please contact us and we will provide a solution.

● I have a Samsung device, and the gallery doesn’t open sometimes.

Please allow a couple of seconds after taking a picture before clicking the gallery button, on Samsung devices the gallery can’t be open while running the media scanner.

● Why do you require the NFC and INTERNET permissions?

NFC is required to support Android Beam and INTERNET is required for the Facebook, Twitter and YouTube integration.


● How can I play Paper Camera videos on my PC?

Using any WebM player. We recommend Firefox or Chrome, however you might be able to use Windows Media Player or Internet Explorer if you install the right plugins.

● I can't play Paper Camera videos on my standard device gallery.

You require Android 4.0 or higher for this to work, on older versions you can use the in-app video player.

● I can't record video with Paper Camera on my new device, why?

We've only enabled this feature on devices that we know can support it properly. However you can still try using unofficial video recording support.

● How do I enable unofficial video recording support?

In the settings menu. Let us know if this works properly on your device and we will officially enable it in future versions. Please note that you will have to be running Android 2.3.3 and have support for NEON instructions for this to work at all.

● I've unlocked unofficial video support but I cannot playback my videos in Paper Camera, why?

This is a known limitation on some devices, there are 3 workarounds for this:
- You can playback videos on your PC.
- You can use MX Video Player, if you enable software mode.
- Hopefully when your device will receive a 4.0 upgrade this issue will be fixed.

    The test report says there's three sliding setting adjusters to to each camera effect, but there is actually six, giving a level of control that other similar apps don't have.
    The Gotham Noir setting with the contrast and brightness up, the lines and edges down, with a touch of vignette gives a stunning black and white photography mode. I paid £1.20 for this wonderful app and not a penny wasted. Don't miss it for 25p!

    If you like the film A Scanner Darkly then you will probably love videoing thru' this app. You might also like taking lots of drugs and staring at a wall, but this is safer and you can share what you see with other people.

    This has to be one of the value-for-money purchases I've ever made in my whole life! Fun and wonderful for scrapbooking and other handicrafts. I'm going to print out the outline shots, use watercolours to fill in the drawings, and make greeting cards out of them :-) Well done!
