A camera app for anything beyond mobile is going to look strange. (Have
you ever tired taking a picture with a tablet? It's awkward[1].)

I suggest we split-up the work into two applications.

The camera app we're working on and an accompanying picture gallery app,
that would automatically sync with e.g. Dropbox.

There's potential for a lot of code reuse, but it's two very different
applications.

The gallery app seems in scope of what François described as an
application Joshfire would be interested in developing.

The feature requirements of the camera app will dictate what mobile device
it can run on. Afaik, it'll need to be a last generation Android device
running Chrome.

I have fewer technical concerns for the gallery app.
