iPhone Screenshots


The original black screen camera app. No nonsense app with no silly gimmicks.

Take a photo or video with a touch of the blacked out screen.

Made for concert and festival goers

Features include:

- Discrete preview window that can be hidden
- Live photos available
- Burst mode

All settings can be uniquely set to your preferences and saved.

CovertCam v4.0.2 features:
- Single tap anywhere on screen for photo
- Swipe right to toggle video mode, then double tap anywhere on screen for video (double tap again to stop)
- Swipe left to toggle front/rear cameras
- Swipe right to toggle photo/video mode
- Press and hold (3+ seconds) for settings/removing settings menu
- Burst mode - Takes a photo every x seconds

Coming soon:
- Integration with Apple Watch

In order to take video you need to be in 'video mode' - Swipe right and you toggle between photo and video mode. An indication that you are in 'video mode' will be that the view finder will slightly enlarge. Once in 'video mode' you can double tap to start the video.

It is currently not possible to auto-disable the shutter sound of the camera when taking a photo. It is against the iOS Developer Program License Agreement.

It is against iOS Developer Program License Agreement to not have indications on the screen when taking a photo and/or video.

Mfg engineer ,

Well done almost....

For the most part works great!! My only complaint is the setting page cuts off the right side of setting so I can see what they are set to or even see them. I would attach a screenshot but I can in this review. Tks

Developer Response ,


Sorry to hear this. We will address this in a fix coming out in the next few week.

In the meantime could you let us know what device you are running the app on?

This app is difficult to use

I was able to switch to video mode and also to settings, but return from setting to the black screen make it disappear the preview window from the bottom and I can’t make it reappear again until I close and reopen the app. I wish you could fix that

I use this app to record videos in a really private way
But having the red or green icon so big and on the top right side of the screen make it so obvious to everyone that it stops being private and can no longer use for mysterious recording as those big icons red dot , green square make everybody realices that I’m recording and can’t be hidden , private or a secret anymore

I wish you could fish that
I don’t think it’s necessary to have such huge icons it could be something really small and neat.

I wish you could fix it

Developer Response ,

In order to get to video mode you need to swipe right (if you have the viewfinder on display it will slightly enlarge to give you feedback you’re video mode).

If you then double tap it should start recording.

Please consider updating the star rating if this works.


Its been years can you consider?

Its been years and users are asking for the same thing can you atleast consider removing the red dot in video mode? We would all appreciate it and then you’d have the perfect app for covert recording, if not can you atleast give me a reason? App is a 3.5 just because of the red dot man, other wise it’s absolutely perfect
