What's new in this version (1.3.0):
* Please note: We've been having trouble with our email hosting service. We are trying to track the problem down and will fix it ASAP. In the meantime, if you see repeated failures sending your emails, please let us know at email@example.com.
* To make processing photos go faster and be more reliable, we’ve removed the EXIF-writing code we added a while back. It was worth trying but hasn’t been worth the cost in reliabi
Snap a picture from your camera directly into your email inbox, in just two quick clicks.
Do you ever take pictures on your phone and then email them to yourself? To record progress on a project as you work? To make a permanent copy of what's on a whiteboard before you erase it? To help you remember a display in a store window or the setup of a cool tradeshow booth? To record the state of a jobsite as you leave it? To have a picture of a maintenance problem to send along to the responsible party?
Now you can go from camera to inbox in two clicks -- just Capture and Send. The app also automatically records the date, time, and location and includes them in the email, great for documenting what/where/when with an indisputable photographic record.
You configure a destination email address the first time you run the app. For maximum flexibility, make it your own email address. Then you can review the picture and download/upload it or forward to anyone, anywhere from your inbox. Or, if you routinely use a photo sharing service such as Flickr, which has an email upload feature, use that email address instead and go from phone to Flickr in two quick clicks.
Note that, with this free version, you do have to have cell service at the time you use the app and sending the email can take a LONG time depending on the size of the photo file your camera generates and the vagaries of the cell network you are transmitting through. Don’t shut down the app while the Send is in progress, though, or you will lose your photo. (The paid version improves this delay AND can queue up photos to send later when you get in cell coverage back.)
You can use the Notes button to enter a Subject for the email and as much text for the body of the email as you want. If you don’t use Notes before you press Send, the email subject line and the name of the photo will always be SnapToMe appended with the date and time. If you do enter your own subject, that will also be used for the name of the photo. This means that typing in a Subject before you hit Send can make it much, much easier long term to be able to search your email/harddrive for a specific photo.
The pictures captured by SnapToMe are NOT usually stored in the Gallery on your phone, although we have reports that this is happening on some specific phone models. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in this feature; we may be able to add it if folks want it.
Recent update summary:
* Added progress dialog to be shown after Capture before Send is enabled. Some phones take an appreciable amount of time to process the image after Capture is pressed. This progress dialog will help the user know the app is ready for Send to be pressed.
* Allow the app to be moved to an SD card.
Made exact image width scaling an option, disabled by default. This will fix freezes on slower phones.
