Pocket Mirror 1.5.2/3

+ Multiple bug fixes
+ Performance improvement on larger screens

This is a major bug fix patch that fixes multiple issues with the video recording and screen size. It also fixes one instance where the app could freeze.

It increase the resolution on larger screens and tablets where it was before locket to 640x480.

1.5.3 fixes issues with rotating the image and storing images.


  1. Every time I close Pocket Mirror on my Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G it always launches the Media Scanner. Even if I only use it to view myself without saving a picture. This is a bug that needs to be addressed. Also, as others have said, needs to give an option to auto hide/show the Banner at the bottom of the screen by touching the screen.

  2. Hi Edward,

    I'm working on a fix for the Media scanner so that it will only run after you have stored a image or video. It runs because I had multiple complains that the image/video taken did not appear in the gallery.

    Regarding the full screen feature, this is something I’ve been trying to fix for a time. I can give you the option to use full screen but this will stretch the image some. This is why I’ve not implemented it. The reason the image only uses part of the screen is to keep the 1:1 ratio. The other solution I’ve found reduces the frames per second drastically (have to convert the camera stream to a bitmap and manipulate it). So none of the options are optimal. A third option could be to hide the bar (just set a black background) and center the image vertical.

    What would be preferred until I find a better way to solve the issue?
