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.

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?

Seems great to me. Both video and audio come in clean. It’s quick. It’s easy if you follow the controls provided above. I am wondering if there’s a way to get rid of the tiny red marker that’s there in video mode. Hardly noticeable though I want complete invisibility. Great app man, definitely recommend.

Video recording red dot

The app works great with only one problem.
The video recording has a permanent red dot on the screen and this defeats the purpose of having a covert black screen, please advise how I fix this or is this a bug ??
