    Finally someone write the camera app designed for stealthy taking photo :D

    sometimes i like to take photo on the bus and train....

    but when i use the iphone camera, it show the image on screen,
    i want the iphone to be locked while i can still take the photo.

    Hidden camera was designed for doing this job, but it used another approach.
    When you start this app, it show a black screen, and just a very small words "take" is written on screen. You may touch just anywhere on the screen to trigger the camera to take photo.

    One very clever design is that if your camera is not muted, it will alert you ! :D

    Sometimes i just accidentally forgot to turn it silent before taking photo and the iphone produce the "caaappp" sound effect. It is embarrassing for me. ;)

    This app has a buffer for storing photo in memory. That means you can take photo consecutively. I tested it and it need about 1 - 2 second for each take. It will show how many photos are currently cached and saving to the camera disk. This design is good but the saving speed is still too slow. It may be the problem of iphone itself, i don't know.

    I have used it on bus and it works. For the people who like to snap you may try it. :D

    You could always google to see pictures of pretty girls, instead of taking illegal photos of them on a bus.

    just found another app called "sneakypix" ,

    it was designed to take picture automatically for every 4 seconds. The author said that the user can put the iphone on the ear and pretend talking phone.

    The concept is good but however, this app is little stupid because it show the live view on the screen just like the original camera. It make this app less useful. :)

    C'mon it was developed by an asian. Not to sound stereotypical, but they love taking hidden pics.

    And the reviewer is most likely Asian based on his grammar, so he's either the developer or falls into the stereo type.

    You scare me. I hope someone is secretly filming you when a man notices you sneaking underpants shots of his wife.

    Taking hidden pics is the government's job, didn't you know that?
