    I have a question regarding the Camera, or, more specifically, the film roll.

    First, I almost never use the camera. That being said, every so often, on the camera roll, I get "pictures" of Dots and Boxes (the old game where you try to complete a square and when you do, you put your name in the middle).

    I also get hang man and tic-tac-toe pictures-they all look like "pen and paper" drawings.

    Anyone else seen this? Forgive me if duplicate-I searched for this but maybe used the wrong search terms.

    do you have those apps on your phone?
    pressing the home and sleep/wake button simultaneously for a second or so takes a screenshot and saves it to the camera roll

    Yeah, you need to be more specific.

    Yeah I know about that-I do not have any "connect the dots" game installed on the phone-I looked some more and there is also a "screen shot" of a piece of graph paper and the HUGE lined paper you get in first grade when you are just beginning to learn to write. I should upload some next time they show up. I really have NO IDEA where they are coming from.

    I DO KNOW that they are not intentional screen shots-I don't even know what application they came from.

    Do you have the app Sketches on your phone? Does anyone else use your phone?

    Sorry to bump an old thread, but I have exactly the same problem.
    They just appear.
    I don't have any apps installed that are like Dots & Boxes or TicTacToe or Hangman or a handwriting paper app.
    I've saved them to my computer, and it's just happened again.
    I don't get it. Why are Apple pushing these pics to my iPhone? I thought I was alone on this... At least I know I'm not now.
    Here are the pics btw:

    Weird! I had those show up on my iPhone a few months ago, I have no idea where they came from.

    I just had the same thing happen to me. No idea what the app is. Last thing I installed was Etch a sketch light, maybe that's the culprit?

    It's from the Etch A Sketch app. Here's an excerpt from the description:
