A long time ago computers didn't have graphics. All they could do was show green characters on a black screen or black characters on white paper.

But programmers were resourceful. They discovered that if you filled the screen with certain characters and squinted you could sort of make out a picture. Thus ASCII art was born.

The ASCII cam application lets you view the world as ASCII art using the camera on an Android device. Characters are displayed as green-on-black, white-on-black, or, for that line printer look, as dark-grey-on-white.

It's just the thing for Android owners suffering iPhone envy: a photography application that's even more retro than Hipstamatic. Short of simulating clay tablets or papyrus, this is as old-school as it gets.

Pictures can be saved as either PNG images or text files.

Whats new

    Can now save as text and PNG simultaneously.

Problems on Acer A500 (Android 3.2) I thought I'd try this app as a tip for the work done for the X Server, and quickly found a few problems with "ASCII cam". - video doesn't when 'Stretch to fill screen' is used - ASCII and video don't seem to sync with 'Zoom to fill screen' - No way to select front or back camera - Picture taking requires a direction pad, perhaps 'tap anywhere on screen' would help tablets without direction pads Promising app, should be a nice demo for small kids. UPDATE: Developer added a "Take a picture" menu entry the next day! Rock on.
