QuickShot 1 has been out for awhile and I have used it for many months. I think it was Shawn Blanc's post that introduced me to it. I just realized that while it is on my home screen and I use it regularly, I've never recommended it. Let's rectify that situation.
QuickShot is a basic camera app with one core principle: Take a photo and immediately upload it to a specific Dropbox folder. I use this for grabbing photos of handwritten notes, white-boards, manuals and anything I want to keep that is not plain text.2
By turning off the "Save to Library" option, I can keep these photos out of my iCloud stream too.
QuickShot provides some default upload profiles but it is very easy to configure a new profile. There's not a lot to configure, other than the upload location and file naming pattern.
A profile has settings for the file naming scheme that can include shortcuts for the capture time and date as well as picture quality settings.
It's a simple solution for a simple problem and it works well. What's not to like?
- Launches very quickly
- Uploads fast
- Good file naming options
- The camera is very basic. There is a control for the flash and tap to focus, but nothing else.
- Changing to a different profile requires two menus.
