Are you tired of taking pics you know you will delete when you realize you have no more space on your device? Then get this app! Capture and Release is a timer-based deleting, photo taking app to automatically get rid of your unwanted, unnecessary images.

Capture and Release lets you take all the unimportant images you want without cluttering your Photos app. How many time have you went through your pics to delete unwanted, spacing taking images that were taken for a single purpose that lasted minutes only. CnR will do that for you. Use CnR to take images and store them for up to the time you desire. When that desired time reaches for that image it will be deleted, but before that you can share it, you can add a note to it, draw on it, crop it, text label it or lock it from being deleted. CnR is great if you use your phone for taking many pictures with notes while at work. The Captured image can be exported/shared with or without the description you give it. In Settings you determine the length of time (ranging from 3 hours to 3 month) for the images, at that time if they are not locked they will be Released (deleted). You can also choose to lock all images on Capture and decide later to unlock.

While you may see many apps available to help you declutter your Photos app, the best way is to NOT let it get cluttered in the first place by using CnR, so that your Photos app is full of your precious memories. So when you want to take that pic of that great meal at that nice restaurant and post to social media, just take it with CnR and share, after that "Don't worry about it!", it will be gone later.

CnR stores all data and images local to your device, no communication with a server. No data is collected.

This app is truly amazing

Whoever created this is a genius. I've been trying to find an app like this for a long time and I'm glad that it finally got me. This is truly amazing. And I hope that other people get it. Super easy to use. And very convenient. Everybody needs to share this and buy it.

Such a great idea for an app! I’m surprised it’s taken this long for something like this to come on the market. I really love how easy it is to use. It’s such a time saver. You should totally download it!
