I am generally not a user of the Seek app, but still want to contribute to provide improvements - so everytime I see an updated version is available, I am doing some test rounds.
What I estimate as the most important ‘area under construction’ is the camera, as it seems to be difficult to implement features that work well with Android.
While the tap-to-focus feature is finally a thing, and now also with a frame appearing around the area to focus on, I have to say that it just does not work. I even feel that the app was more useful when the focussing was automated: While in the past I was able to get at least decent shots of bugs, now it wont even focus on a (not so small) butterfly on a butterfly bush. I can tell the camera where to focus, but all it is interested in seems to be getting the background into focus.
I wonder if it is possible to implement a ‘locked focus’ feature, that you can pre-focus on a larger object and then move the mobile phone in the appropriate distance of the target object.
I also wonder if other Android users experience this as well - I am astonished that nothing has been reported here so far, and there must be at least some users having started the ‘grassland challenge’?
