Is there any way to trigger takePicture without the user having to intervene?
Here's my code
All I want to do is to show the camera, wait 2 seconds and then automatically shoot. I know this is possible natively because there are apps that are timer photo apps.
same question here. The documentation says it should work with takePicture but on Android it will show the camera and you have to take the picture yourself. Is it broken?
I am curious to this functionality as well. My use case is that I am needing to automatically take a sequence of pictures: show camera viewfinder, snap the photo automatically, show the result for a couple seconds save the photo then repeat for a specified number of times or until event.
Did you ever solve this? I'm looking to do something similar. I want the camera to take a picture under my control and not have any user intervention.
hey did you solve it?i have to do the same thing!
No, I never did. I believe it's against Apple rules to have a picture taken without some user interaction. As a result, I abandoned my idea.
Oh wait, it wasn't the picture taking that was the problem, it was the sending of a picture via email with no user interaction that was the problem.
