MHC supports next generation Android RunTime (ART)

One of the greatest features of Android 4.4.x KitKat, also probably the most under-reported one, is the next generation Android RunTime (ART).

What is ART?

When you start any apps on your Android device, the system actually takes some time and effort to compile the app package to machine code so your device can understand and execute. It does this Just in Time of execution. So as you run apps on your device, it actually keeps doing these resource intensive tasks in the background and this is a major reason why people notice Android apps are a bit sluggish when compared to their iOS counterparts.

This is, until you switch to the new Android RunTime (ART).

With ART enabled, machine code compilations are done Ahead of Time during app installation. So when you run apps on your device, it can skip all that and simply executes the code directly.

The result? Reports show that ART yields performance improvements of around 10% to 20% on average. On the other hand it also boosts battery life because your device now does a lot less resource intensive machine code compiling. Take into considerations ART is currently a preview technology in Android 4.4.x KitKat so it can only get better and better in upcoming Android releases.

What this means to MHC users?

It means MHC gets even better!

In normal shooting MHC already performs better with ART enabled. But it gets even more interesting with the extreme features in MHC PREMIUM edition like background shooting. Now everything runs faster on your device and in MHC’s background shooting mode, while MHC keeps shooting in the background, not only can you keep running other apps on top but now you do it even more naturally with enhanced performance and you can also do it for longer thanks to new battery savings!

How to enable ART

ART is currently a development preview feature in Android 4.4.x KitKat. You can enable it by:

  • go to Android’s Settings / About phone
  • continuously tab Build number over and over until it says you’re a developer, then hit back and you’ll see the new Developer Options just above the About phone item
  • under Developer Options / Select Runtime, select Use ART, it’ll reboot and optimize all your apps. (so this first reboot will take a while)

Mobile Hidden Camera v4.1 released

Given Mobile Hidden Camera’s strictly stealthy nature we know it’s not the most user friendly app on the playstore. That’s simply because we put user privacy and security our very top priority.

No compromise whatsoever.

Well, still whenever we find ways to make life easier for our users, we go ahead.

In our newly released MHC v4.1 we’ve fully revamped the way users select the file storage location. Now, under the “file protection” settings page you can easily see the chosen location, and you can easily select a location from a few given options.

Note that MHC actually builds that storage location option list by first querying your device firmware. On Android 4.4.x KitKat devices with external sd card storage (e.g. Samsung S4 / Note 3 devices with an updated firmware) it provides you an extremely easy selection option to tell MHC to save files to your external sd card.

You can install MHC V4.1 for free from our downloads page.

MHC doesn’t work… oops wait… sorry it’s working too well!

“When I turn on ‘Hide images and videos from gallery’ no images or videos are taken!”, it’s pretty much the most frequently asked question from our users. In fact we get quite a number of this everyday.

Well, it turns out, oops… MHC’s just doing its job too well; all operations are so secretly taken without evidence, and even the user who shot the images and videos himself doesn’t know the job is done. And not just the job is done, it’s actually very well done indeed.

The thing is, under this “hide files from gallery” mode, MHC saves the images and videos secretly into a special hidden folder. A lot of users just don’t see that hidden place so they start to complain it doesn’t work, well, until we tell them to check MHC’s settings summary so then they get the full storage location.

Even then, some of them still have issues finding that location given the full path. That’s because the folder itself is “hidden”.

You can actually use any file exploring apps, e.g. Root Explorer, ES File Explorer, etc., to browse the location; but you gotta make sure the app itself has “show hidden files” enabled. Only then will it reveal MHC’s special hidden folder.

Sorry for that little bit of inconvenience, but well, that’s all by design as our very first design principal of Mobile Hidden Camera is “get it HIDDEN and SAFE”. And sorry for being a bit stubborn on this, we are not going to make MHC files easier to find, simply because that would otherwise hurt our users’ privacy!

When it comes to privacy and security, we just do not compromise.

Security, security, security – spy shooting is all about security

Yet another update highlights why Mobile Hidden Camera is the most trusted spy camera app of all time on Android.

When it comes to mobile apps, the average developers always squeeze the most out of you with Ad serving. They don’t hesitate to make profits out of your privacy.

We live by a different philosophy.

MHC never joins any Ad networks.

MHC never serves any advertisements.

So, MHC installed on your device remains an isolated app on your device. It helps you shoot great images & videos, at the same time assuring you that it won’t even look at your data on your device.

Building the app this way is the only way to protect our users. This is what makes MHC the most trusted spy camera app of all time.

Latest MHC update greatly enhances performance on Android 4.x

We’re very pleased to release yet another update of Mobile Hidden Camera. The latest release v3.4.228 provides some great additional features as well as performance and reliability enhancements across all Android versions, particularly on Android 4.x Jelly Bean systems.

For example, the “hide button lights” option in MHC would hide the whole system navigation bar on devices without hardware buttons. (e.g. Nexus devices) This means on such devices you can get a full black screen without any hardware or software button lights.

We’ve also introduced image and video auto-rotate features to bring spy shooting to a new level of convenience.

All users are recommended to update to our latest version simply by installing from our downloads section.
