Android Enthusiasts Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for enthusiasts and power users of the Android operating system. It's 100% free, no registration required.

The camera in my Galaxy S3 is not everything I want it to be. It's lacking one feature which is important for me: timer. That pushed me to search for camera apps and I was hopping to easily find the app for people that care about taking pictures. Instead I found the apps for people that care about filters.

This is my mental spec for a camera app:

  • Take the highest possible quality of pictures.
  • Timer with configurable time as well as amount of pictures.
  • Widget to take pictures with one tap on my home screen.

Is there such an app?

The camera on the Samsung Galaxy S 3 does have a timer. Click the gear to bring up the settings menu. Timer is nearly halfway down, between Focus mode and Resolution.

Ouch... now I feel dumb. I somehow forgot that you could scroll the list of settings. –  J. Pablo Fernández May 31 '13 at 11:08
Perhaps you should edit your question to ask how to set a timer on this phone. As it stands it's likely to be closed. –  Dan Hulme May 31 '13 at 11:22
