Me too…

I had this idea for a camera app for quite a while now: being included in the picture while you are taking it.

This can be handy when you are at a party and you don’t want to be left out, to state you were there, in front of a beautiful landscape, etc…

Very simple and basic…


Update: hadn’t worked on this project for a looooong time but, after updating my phone to ICS and finding out it wouldn’t work, I decided to re-open the project and fix it: now it should work with any Android phone with two cameras and Android Gingerbread (2.3) or above!

    I’m a Beginning Developer from Germany. I have a problem with the front facing camera on Samsung Galaxy S (Android 2.2).
    I can’t take a picture with the front facing camera and get a green screen. But the preview is correct.
    With the Back-Camera can I make photos.

    Where is the problem?

    Here is my code:

    In your App works the front facing camera.
    I would be very grateful of your help.

    Thank you! Oli
