New Say Cheese Version 1.6.6 is Live (Android)

I recommend this version!  Version 1.6.6 is much faster overall. 

New Features Include:

* Free Frames (a set of 19) 

1. Some Motorola phones would black out after snapshot and save. Fixed.

2. New Corner Store Love Frames 

3. Instant Upload to Facebook after snapshot option.

4. Addons coupon support.

5. Down facing camera remains in landscape mode, no longer rotates the image.

6. Generally faster.

7. Swipe Up on camera view to get directly to the Live Frames browser.

8. Swipe Right to change live frames from camera view.

9. Advanced Settings
   - Stay alive when launched from another app

Once logged into facebook, Instant Upload will immediately upload to facebook with no user interaction and upon completion return to the camera view. Check the Instant Upload check box to enable. Only active when auto-save is also enabled or long press snapshots are taken. 

The PowerUp Coupon code field in the Corner Store, lets you purchase Addons at a discount when coupons are available. See the facebook say cheese fan page for the latest deals.

Why is Groupon so successful even though they charge so much and sellers dislike them so much? Groupon is not the only game in town.  Is this better than Groupon?

Say Cheese Discount Coupons

Hey Say Cheese Users, you can find  addon discount coupons on the Say Cheese Fan Page! You can get up to 50% off Live Frames for use with your free Say Cheese Camera.

I'm working on a document to show other developers how to promote their addons with Powerup Coupons. Pretty cool way to spread the word about your app and your addons. Powerup works with Facebook and is viral.

Here's an article that explains how to use Powerup Coupons with any App.

Silent Shutter

For most devices, there is a somewhat secret option in Say Cheese for turning the shutter sound on and off. From the table of contents click the Timer button, and then below the Shutter Delay options there is a Shutter Sound section.  Just scroll down and from there you can turn the shutter sound on and off. 

If the Say Cheese silent feature does not work on your phone and you are determined to have a silent shutter, you can simply delete the shutter sound file: system/media/audio/ui/camera_click.ogg

You can do this with one of the file managers. But you will need root access to your phone, Also in some countries, like Japan, a silent camera is illegal. Go figure.

Anyway, that's the guaranteed solution. You may want to save a copy of the file in case you want to restore the shutter sound. You can also replace this file with your own shutter sound, which could be interesting.

* On some devices, setting the shutter sound off option will disable the voice response.

Prediction. Within 5 years, cell phone cameras will be as good as the Cannon Mark II combined with augmented reality.
