    I've been using Snap Photo since early on, and it was cool. Then I bought Pro. I went through several updates and checked out all the features. I have to say, this app is getting worse with time!

    Here are all my complaints. All of these problems happen intermitently. I can never seem to reproduce the problems at will, but they've all occurred multiple times.

    1. Saves corrupted pictures. This is the worst! You take a pic, it looks good on the screen. You have auto-save turned on, so it just starts saving it, and shows the spinner. Later you go look for your photo in the Pictures app and there it is with a broken-looking, gray icon instead of a thumbnail. And now it's too late to try again. This is a complete deal breaker for me. If you can't trust the app to save a photo 100% of the time then it's useless!

    2. Takes a LOT longer to save a photo to the SD card than the regular photo app. I mean after the picture it taken, and the still image is on your screen, and it's showing the spinner icon as it saves. You have to wait at leats 5 seconds for it to finish saving the pic. The regular app does it in two. It's probably using its own shoddy code to compress the JPEG file. Hence why you can change the quality, and why it screws up sometimes and saves a corrupted pic.

    3. The app stops listening to any input at all. Several times I would be waiting for the perfect time to take a pic and would click the button

    No, I've just been using the Camera app.

    BTW, you really shouldn't quote an entire post like that. Everyone knows who you are replying to. It's right above your post. It's just making this thread needlessly long.

    BTW: Posts that are referred to have been know to change, or deleted .. so in the long run it is best to have a complete context ...

    I agree that if I am the 2nd poster I could be assumed to be answering the OP ... but that may not be the case ...as I might be making a related posting that is not an actual reply to the immediately previous post ...(this post is a perfect example of that)..

    But Thanks fro you concern to lenghty posts....
