Take Sneaky Photos Sneakily With Camera Camouflage [Review]



There’s no other way of saying this: Camera Camouflage is sneaky.

It’s a camera app that goes out of its way to avoid looking like a camera. It disguises itself as an incoming phone call. You can even instruct it to activate your phone’s ringtone, so you can pretend to take the call and hold the phone to your ear.

At which point, things get even sneakier.

Camera Camouflage is activated by your voice. When you start speaking, it takes a photo. To onlookers, you’re just answering a phone call.

You can keep talking, and keep snapping, for as long as you want. Your photos are saved to the camera roll automatically, and if you’re using an iPhone 4, the flash is kept switched off by default.

Like I said, sneaky.

There are two types of people who’ll like this:

  1. fans of street photography who love catching candid photos of ordinary people, and
  2. perverts

Camera Camouflage costs a dollar. It’s not the only app of its kind; there’s also Disguised Cam, Cam-u-flage, and YKW Stealth Camera.
