Have you ever had a moment where you wanted to discreetly take an image, but not let others know. Maybe you are escorting a friend to a surprise party, and don't want to tip him or her off by opening up your camera app and obviously framing up a shot for when the surprise happens....
Well, with Discreet Camera, you can capture those candid moments quickly and discreetly. Discreet Camera is a small app that activates your camera without sound, flash, or even your screen indicating that a picture is being taken. Just hold the phone in your hand (like you are checking an email or text message), point the camera at your target, tap the icon, and snap a quick pic. Keep in mind that nothing will appear to open when you hit the app. However, it will snap a pic. This is how it's designed to work... discreetly.
The application is hidden on your phone as a power management app (called "Power Monitor Pro"), and can be activated right from a shortcut on your desktop. Images are saved in your gallery. The resolution is set at 1280x960, auto scene, and auto white balance. The camera may take a few seconds for the pic to take if your device has an auto-focus.
Tips: For best results, practice using the app so that you know how your camera behaves. Since there is no viewfinder, practice will help take pics that are on the mark.
As the flash has been turned off, be sure to try to utilize the available lighting as best as you can (Paid version will have the flash activated on auto and higher resolution).
For best results, hold in portrait mode. _____________________________________________
