    DoubleCam takes viewfinder-quality snapshots while simultaneously recording standard or HD video:


    for OS 5, there's a more limited version that just takes quiet snapshots, but not while recording video:

    Viewfinder only takes up about half of the screen - the rest is black.

    Functionality works, I have a new video in my videos folder and new picture under camera pics. Had to accept a 'trying to reset security timer' message but otherwise worked.

    That's expected in portrait, otherwise the image would be stretched or else zoomed.

    In landscape it should be fullscreen, or as big as possible without distortion.

    Added a permission to the first-run request to take care of that extra prompt.

    Makes sense - consider pulling the viewfinder down towards the middle of the screen and/or putting some controls on there, more like the native video - just so its clear to the user - it just looks like something is wrong.

    Also, it does not auto-orient. Works with startup orientation but if you switch, for example, from portrait to landscape, it stays portrait.

    There were problems when the display flipped during recording or while paused, so it's just locked however it is when the app is opened (in DoubleCam; but in Courtesy Camera, it will flip).

    Courtesy Camera is combined with Led-Free Video in a single app. The latter turns off the flashing light while recording using the native video camera.
