Ratings and Reviews
Great app other then the camera function.
I use this application all the time for doing appraisals and taking photos for my website. The camera portion of the app stinks. I have all these great features on the camera app of my phone (ie. zoom in, zoom out, night mode, panorama , etc) that I can’t use! I can’t be taking extra time taking the photos with the camera app on my phone then uploading them to vAuto. Not only would doing that defeat the purpose of having the camera function on the provision app it would be a huge waste of time and as anyone in the car business knows time is money. Please add these camera functions and any other functions that I forgot to the application. It would make this app five stars all day long!
Camera Issues in App
The camera refuses to rotate when attempting to take photos in landscape mode, making all the pictures rotated by 90 degrees when they are uploaded. No my phones rotation is not locked out and it works fine outside the app. It is an iPhone 6. Never had a problem before and the rest of the app seems to work aside from intermittent crash issues when pulling Carfax’s on the phone. Please get this resolved!!
Move the camera button over !!!
Great app, I use it a lot for internet pictures. My only complaint is the location of the picture button. When taking pictures and snapping off 40-50 at a time the button is oddly placed all the way towards the edge. It needs to moved over more center a half Inch or so like the native iPhone camera for better functionality. As everyone knows, time is money in the car business. Fumbling around with a separate camera or uploading from a folder is an unnecessary waste of time. Seems like an easy fix to me and I bet I’m not the only one that complains about it. Please move the button over! Thanks, love the app otherwise.
