About this app

AsciiCam generates ASCII images in real time from whatever your camera is pointing at. Choose from black and white, primary colors, or full colors, take pictures, and share them as images or HTML. You can also create ASCII versions of pictures in your gallery, and optionally have ASCII versions automatically generated every time you take a picture with the standard camera app.

AsciiCam is completely free and open source.

The app is straightforward, transforming the camera field of view in a 112×64 array of "letter pixels" that is less of an ASCII and more of letterized pixel art. Keeps well with the 60 FPS refresh rate, and is efficient. Unfortunately, trying to use the front camera crashes the app.

pretty good i like that you can edit the characters used and that it saves the picture in a text file, all it needs is some more features like custom colours, ability to change the size of the characters ans ability to record video

One of the best ascii image apps. My advice would be to use a better interface for selecting photos.
