About this app

Generic Ascii Cam turns your camera input into ASCII art.

- Generate ASCII images in real time.
- View the camera preview as ASCII and take pictures with this tool.
- Save or share the captured ASCII images.

Warning: Choosing a high image width(240+) may cause the camera preview to lag.

Choose from several different settings:
- FPS: Choose the camera preview FPS.
- Image Width: Choose how many ASCII characters you want to represent your image. Choosing high image widths may cause the preview to become sluggish.
- Use Front/Rear Camera
- Invert Brightness: Represent dark areas with lighter characters
- Contrast: Change the contrast used in the conversion. We recommend using at least 50% contrast to reduce image noise.

... And it crashes. Useless. Luckily there are working apps that are both open source and without spam.

Put some variety in the ascìi chars, it looks aweful. Use a range based on brightness. ie. -+*#. Cool idea though.
