Great for photos, poor for videos I was excited to read about this new ap that would do exactly what I was looking for - obscure faces in videos for You-Tube, but it does not work as advertised. Release candidate 2b was the version I used on my Android Asus TF300T tablet running v4.2.1. It worked very well on still images in my library. It could not, however, detect faces in any videos I tested from my video library. Manual processing was time consuming and frustrating. When attempting to save an edited file, I always got the unrecoverable error, "Can't play this video". And that video it can't play is the ObscuraCam video I just tried to edit! I'd love to modify this review, so please keep at it, you guys. But in the mean time, no one should depend on this software to protect their identities from previously recorded videos.
Awesome for Photos Hard to use in videos. I love this app it is great for blurring faces! BUT in videos it is a challenge to do. I love this app so I am giving 4 star if you make it so you can like slow the video down or something to add in the blurrs I will rate 5 star!
Bullcrap. I still found my photos where I didn't want them. On picasa and g+. Dishonest bullshit that doesn't solve the massive privacy intrusion that google has inflicted on our phones. Uninstalling with disgust and disappointment.
Camera Cannot Connect Well there you have it.I'm giving it 3 stars because it use to work though. I am not sure if it is the fault of the app or the horrible Lollipop "update".
Great app, but some flaws My biggest gripe is the home menu animation the background, it's really bad, I wish it was slower, or it if was replaced with a static background. It's harsh on the eyes, but obviously, this is just a cosmetic problem. Also cosmetic is the fact that the zoom controls are kinda off, as in they are compressed-skewed. This might be a UI problem related to phone display aspect ratio and resolutions. Choosing faces works fine, but when saving the image, it saves the image at a much lower resolution (this cannot be chosen). So I'm editing a 5M image, and it re-saves it to below VGA resolution. Sometimes, the pixellation or redaction are also slightly off-centered from the actual selection area. The video is also slow to process, but this might have to do with the phone processing power limitation (not the fault of developers). I'm assuming that not only does it individually process each frame, but it must be re-compressed and packed into a container file.
Can't make this work Cannot convince the app to load pictures on my device on either my HTC M8 running 4.4.4 nor my Nexus 7 (2013) running 5.0.1. A real shame. Gave two stars instead of one just for the concept.
