  1. Camera Awesome - limited number of FB albums

    When I go to upload photos to Facebook, I only see about 10 albums. I think this is a bug since I have way more. Please check into this. Thanks.

    • Give the option to start in picture mode rather than camera

      It would be great if the app could start in picture mode as it is slow when starting in camera mode and this is annoying when I only want to look at my photos or edit them

      • allow multiple photo downloads

        Currently one has to download photos one at a time. Would like the ability to download multiple copies at one time rather than downloading all photos in gallery that one can do now.

        • Release a Camera Awesome API

          I know SmugMug has an API, so how about releasing one for Camera Awesome? I'm thinking of an app like Day One. I really enjoy combining journal entries with images and I'd enjoy using Camera Awesome from within the app (I realize I can simply use existing images in Camera Roll captured with Camera Awesome). Though Day One doesn't have their own API yet, they currently use the API from Camera +. It would be great if the developers from Day One and other 3rd party apps could use an API from Camera Awesome as well.

          • Add support to camera awesome so it supports multiple twitter accounts making them selectable.

            Currently it selects only one twitter account and if a user has multiple twitter accounts configured on an iOS device, the user cannot select which twitter account for the app to use from inside the app.

            • Import from Dropbox

              I have taken photos on my camera as well as iOS, and Camera Awesome is so Awesome that I want to import them all into Camera Awesome, but it seems I first have to get them into Dropbox and sync that, then download them, or some other equally cumbersome way.

              It would be easier if I could import from Dropbox, but even easier still if I could just drag and drop into the app the same way I drag Archives out of the app when in iTunes, or perhaps you can provide the address to open the app folder in…

              • Add interaction functionality to the Info screen for Location

                Add more interaction to the "info" Location pane in Camera Awesome. At a minimum, let us click on the pin to copy the GPS coordinates. There is no zoom capability so it is hard to explore the small map and get one's bearings...especially on a photo taken last year in, say, The Netherlands. Point is simple...just give the info pane for Location more functionality! Thanks.

                • iCloud backups

                  With about seven upload backup options already in Camera Awesome, can't we have iCloud as well?

                          Support taking photo while recording video. This is a feature supported by several phones. The photo resolution is limited to the video quality (e.g. 1920x1080). But it's a very powerful tool as user no longer needs to choose what he wants to take. The default Moto X Camera app support this function.

                          • add a calibration feature for the level indicator

                            Bad orientation calibration is a well known issue with a lot of phones.
                            A lot of gamers notice it right off.

                            Some Android phones have calibration settings and some don't. Mine doesn't.

                            I checked out a number of bubble-level apps and they have a calibration procedure built right in to deal with this. Checkout Clinometer for an example of a calibration procedure.

                            Camera Awesome needs to do the same thing.

                            Have a calibration routine that users can perform to set the level. Then store the calibration in a file and load it whenever the
                            user loads the app so they…

                            • Improve

                              I think Android needs its own user interface.
                              The iOS interface looks terrible on a Android devices (especially 4.0+).

                              Perhaps release theming capabilities so that the android community can release their own themes for the interface..
                              Or just update it with a Holo themed UI on Android

                              • Add Cropping Guide Grid to Viewfinder to frame non-native aspect ratio

                                Some camera only support certain aspect ratio (e.g. 4:3). If the photographer wants to take a photo of non-native aspect ratio (e.g. 3:2 or 16:9), the cropping guide grid can help him to frame the shot properly. The actually cropping can happen in post-processing step (on computer or as an editing step).

                                Camera FV-5 support such function. There are dark bars at the top and the bottom of the viewfinder. Hopefully, this is not hard to implement.

                                Thanks

                                • Launch from Android lock screen bypassing security PIN/pattern

                                  If a security PIN or pattern is enabled (on HTC One), the stock Android camera can still be launched from the lock screen directly with just one swipe, without being prompted for the PIN or pattern. CA seems to lack this permission. (I would hope the default camera does rely on such a permission, rather than being hotwired as a privileged app.)

                                  Being able to shoot quickly is obviously very desirable. Please if you can enable this for secured phones as well.

                                  • add preset keyword tagging, bonus points for being able to time limit them

                                    I like Camera Awesome so far. But one thing I haven't found on any camera app is preset keyword tagging.

                                    • Could you please add slow motion capture.

                                      People in general would like to capture special moment and like to see it slow motion to see the final result.
