Simple camera timer app for Android

https://github.com/dozingcat/CamTimer

CamTimer is a simple camera timer application for Android devices. It allows you to choose from a 5, 10, or 15 second countdown and takes one or four pictures after the time has elapsed. After you take a picture it will be shown full screen, allowing you to share or delete it.

You can also control the camera flash setting, switch to the front-facing camera if available (requires Android 2.3 or later), and take pictures without a delay.

CamTimer is released under version 3 of the GPL; see "COPYING" for the license text.
