AsciiCam

Replace pixels with text

AsciiCam generates images in real time from whatever your camera is pointing at, either in greyscale, in the primary colors or in full color. Instead of a normal image made of pixels, each area will have a coloured letter of the latin alphabet or another ASCII character.

You can also create ASCII versions of pictures in your gallery, and optionally have ASCII versions automatically generated every time you take a picture with the standard camera app.

Packages

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
