"SneakyPix has your back. Be ready next time something happens that you'd like to document without being judged." - Appolicious (Yahoo! News Network)
"SneakyPix is great for the iPhone owner looking to grab a photo without anyone knowing they are a snapping a picture. You can use it for street photography, for blackmail shots and for photos of camera shy kiddos." - TUAW (AOL Network)
"Such an ingenious (and sneaky!) concept... it is certainly worth a try!" - The iPhone App Review
"It's an amazingly simple program to use... There’s a legitimate use here. No one wants to be the guy who pulls out and snaps candid events on his phone yet there are some moments you just don’t want to miss – bumping into a famous person being the most notable." - Know Your Cell
===== TIPS TO CUSTOMERS =====
- Be sure to hold the phone as still as possible to avoid blurry photos.
- Follow the simple instructions on the main screen.
- Because of government restrictions, users in Japan and Korea will not be able to silence the camera's shutter sound.
===== SUPPORT =====
NOTE: If you are on iOS 6 or 7, you must allow SneakyPix to access your photos. A dialog will ask you for permission, and you should tap yes. Otherwise, SneakyPix will not save your photos/videos. If you've already tapped No, then go to your Settings app, tap Privacy, tap Photos, and turn "On" photo access for SneakyPix.
If you have any problems, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll answer quickly, usually in a few minutes to an hour. Feedback is always appreciated.

Ratings and Reviews
Great app BUT, needs an update
I loved this app since i first purchased it. It's fun, discreet and the last updates were kept getting better with new features. However, the last update was in Sept. of 2013 and there's bugs when u try and use it with the iPhone 6. Please fix the settings bug that deals with what screen is displayed while taking secret pics and also, come out with a new update please. It's about time.
Cool but needs an update
This is a cool basic app that gets the job done. However, it's UI may not be fully iOS 8 compatible. The option to change the screen opens a modal dialog with no options essentially making the user stuck.
Cool, but needs improvement
This is a cool app but there is a major change needed. The app needs its own album built in so it doesn't flood your camera roll with hundreds of pics. If they fix this and let you set picture interval, it would be great.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
