Tomáš Pospíšek's Notizblock Camera app

TLDR: do not use /e/ foundation's "Camera" app. Just install F-Droid, and from there the "Open Camera" app.

I bought myself a Fairphone with pre-installed /e/ and so far I am very happy with it. More on that maybe another time.

Not everything is pure gold with that package either though. One problem is /e/ foundation's "Camera" app. It can take "normal" pictures just fine, however:

I wonder: is anybody at /e/ foundation using their own camera app? Does it also crash for them? If so, why don't they fix it?

Thus I have installed the "Open Camera" app (of which "Camera" was forked off), and it just works.

So /e/ foundation forked a project:

That seems like a rather absurd situation? All this just to have their "own" application with a simpler name?

Now the "Camera" app can't be deinstalled. Apparently you need to use "adb" to get permanently rid of it. Sigh, back to hacking.

(Greets to Alain ;-)!)
