About this app

The #1 glint finder app on Google Play! Glint Finder uses the retro-reflection of the camera flash to allow the user to better identify shiny objects in the camera's field of view. Works great for locating hidden camera lens elements - also for finding dropped parts or contact lenses!

As mentioned in "The Secrets to Finding Hidden Cameras" at -

Glint Finder uses the same principle as the tools used by professionals to help search for and find the lens glint given off by hidden spy camera optics.
- Set the device's flash rate in cycles per second (Hz).
- Adjust device's flash duty cycle.
- Toggle the image polarity to help highlight glints.
The lens optics of hidden cameras produce specular reflection when illuminated with a flash. These retro-reflections show up as highlights or hotspots in the image that stand out as the flash toggles on and off. These are tell-tales used by skilled operators to sweep meeting areas and indoor rooms for hidden cameras.

Note: the flash rate and duty cycle capability will depend on your particular device's capability.

Launching directly into "go" mode with no interface felt like I was going to have a seizure! It NEEDS a start/stop button, some kind of interface. Also, the permissions are excessive. Location and Internet access? Installed apps? No thanks.

You need to update the application! The moment I opnen it shows "the app was built for an older version of Android, it may not work properly" and it doesn't. There are no options to adjust Hz or anything, only the camera flash keeps buzzing. Please update it!
