    Hy, I am trying to make a app that does a few things when i press the start button.

    My problem is that the process should contain that the camera takes a photo after a given time (ofc setting the time is no problem).

    Does anyone maybe know if there is a easy way to capture a picture and store it without pressing a button. I tried it with the MediaIntent(Capture Image) - but this one got a GUI and i always need to press "capture" before my pic gets stored..

    Would be nice if anyone can help me (prefered with code snippets or sth like that)

    I think that's one of the problems with Appinventor, it's not possible to programatically take pictures though there are ways around it.
    Go to the App Inventor forum, or look in to Appinventor addons.
