Private Camera, a new iPhone and iPad app that protects the user’s privacy, is now available as a free download in the iTunes App Store. Developed by GungYi Inc., Private Camera uses a passcode lock to keep pesky friends and family from seeing your photos.
Featuring a grammar-lacking description on the iTunes App Store, Private Camera does a great job at eliminating one big fear we’ve all come across – friends and family members who can’t help snooping around the contents of our iPhone / iPad.
“Did you worry […] that your parents saw your new beautiful girlfriend?” asks developer GungYi Inc. If so, then enter Private Camera, a walled garden for all the photos and videos you’re going to take starting today.
That's right. Don’t make the foolish mistake of thinking that your previous photos will be secured too. Only the ones taken with Private Camera remain private.
“With Password-lock functionality, [you] can protect your personal photos and videos. Its unique Pseudo-password (decoy-password) guest mode, can cope with annoying friends from seeing your private photos and videos,” says GungYi.
Although it requires only iOS 4.3 to work, Private Camera comes with an extra benefit on iOS 5 devices – iCloud integration.
Apparently, Private Camera can sync your photos across devices using Apple’s web service. The photos should end up in the same secured location on another device with Private Camera installed.
Social sharing functions are built in as well. These include Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Flickr, and email, as well as Sina Weibo and Tencent Weibo (incorporated in the latest update released earlier this month).
Private Camera is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch (4th generation), iPad 2 Wi-Fi, iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G, iPad (3rd generation) and iPad Wi-Fi + 4G. It’s free for a limited time, according to its makers. The link below takes you to the universal app on the iTunes App Store. Download Private Camera iOS (Free)
