If you’re experiencing slow loading time with Camera+, Burst mode is likely the culprit

For Camera+ version 3, one of the changes we made was to make the shooting mode setting (Normal, Stabilizer, Timer, Burst) “sticky” across launches of the app. We’ve gotten many requests from you for this and we hope you like this small change.

Burst mode

But in the process of doing so, somehow having the shooting mode set to Burst would cause slowdowns when launching Camera+. We’ve identified this thanks to some diligent users who helped us track it down and it’ll be fixed in the next update of the app.

In the meantime, to get around the slow loading issue, simply don’t leave the shooting mode set to Burst when you exit the app.

    Ok. Didn’t see this until now. Did shut down in Burst mode. Now app will not reboot. Black screen. Can’t tap buttons.

    I have the same problem like “melia”, my Camera+ APP is set to “normal” mode, and still loads so ssslooow.
    I never use the burst mode because I dont like the picts in 640x480 quiality resolution, I prefer to use another APP to make this kind of picts with beter resolution picts.
    I hope soon resolve the slow load of these great APP.

    I have the same problem like Virgilio. More than that, I can’t share my edited pics on facebook through the camera + app as I used to do. Keeps sending me back to log in and never works.

    Solution anyone?
