Prior to the update on iOS, clicking the camera/“add photo” button on an observation would automatically open the camera, with the option to open photo library as a secondary button from there. But now it takes you to a screen where both buttons show, and you have to click which one you are using, no longer defaulting to the camera.
This actually has impacted me more than I expected. I’m so used to the auto-camera, and especially if I’m holding the phone one-handed in an awkward manner to reach a shot where my finger can only press the “take photo” button, it’s no longer possible to grab that photo because I have to retract my arm to select the additional button. The ability to have the camera just “ready” to go instantly has been very useful and surprisingly time-saving.
Arguably a minor thing, but it takes nearly 2 more seconds to load the camera this way compared to the old form, which is enough time for a lot of things to fly away.
Even just an option in “settings” that I could select so that camera comes up first, without having to press the extra button, would be enough.
