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".
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.
Noble, Generous Tool - Poor Results I'm always a fan of anything The Guardian Project does, or creates. They seem to airways have their hearts and minds in the right places, and seem to genuinely care about user rights, safety and above all - Privacy. I've had good results with Tor on my personal computer, and average to above average results with Tor on my mobile device, in conjunction with Firefox. But as for their other two applications, Note Cipher and this one, well, the results have been disappointing and frustrating. I'm using those two apps on an Android tablet. So I do not know if they just do not fully optimize the apps for tablets, and therefore I get buggy and or lackluster results. But, Obscuracam does actually open, and it does seem to be fully optimized for my tablet, as it runs in my native landscape orientation. But it is incredibly sluggish, like I am trying to move through tar, when I attempt to select a portion of my photo. And also, the end resolution of the photo after I'm done obscuring just a tiny area of a screenshot, looks pretty degraded, and much more worse off compared to the original file. I really want this app to work, and I'm very grateful to the Guardian Project for this app.
