Android apps crash while accessing camera

REPRODUCIBILITY (% or how often): always
BUILD ID = OS VERSION (Settings > About product): 4.3
HARDWARE (XA2, X10, X10 II, …): XA2
REGRESSION: (compared to previous public release: Yes, No, ?): ?


Android apps crash when they try to use the camera. One application not usable is the german LUCA app. The app was working until october, until an app-update was made.

The native camera app works?

yes, there is no problem

I am using Android Apps with the camera without any issue - for instance Android Photo TAN Apps; Xperia 10 II, SFOS 4.3
Never had a crash so far

My experience is some mostly work, some don’t work at all.

Android’s HDR Camera mostly works, does true HDR (3 shots like the old Nokia N900) and can take seriously nice pictures even on my XA2. Vividness setting needs toning down and skip the upgrade messages – the new app doesn’t work. :wink:
