    I'm wondering what apps work with the Pre 3's Front Facing Camera - can I use it in the built in camera app - haven't found a way yet - what is out there - is Skype in the phone app the only one?

    isnt that a sensor on the front?

    in the app catalog, search for "camera"

    there is an app that will let you take pictures with the frobt-facing camera.

    camera is tiny!

    what app is used to access it? 'camera' from the appcatalog isnt there?

    bump?...

    Camera is a Touchpad only app I think, since the promocodes released by HP are for Touchpad customers only, and Camera was one of them (I think!)

    I can send you FreeCam to see if it works on the Pre3.

    Yeah FreeCam should work. I have it on my touchpad. Pics are awful though since its a VGA camera...

    Just a question... Why do you need you ff camera since you got a 5mpx on the back ?

    Heck of a lot easier taking a picture of yourself with the FF one - use my FF camera on my iPod touch all of the time!

    In fact, it's a 1.3mp camera, not a VGA one, and it takes nice 1280x1024 pics (The Touchpad)

    Sorry for that. I only used it inside my house and the lighting didn't help at all.
    1.3 is ok but still cannot be compared with the 5mpx of pre3


    By the way, a front facing camera is ideal to take pics of me and my son when i am babysitting

    (Yeah, go and get it, it's quite cheap, for TouchPad 3.0.2)

    Actually, there is a patch that will allow you to use the LED as a flashlight called LED Torch.
