Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-415) Taking multiple pictures with the camera causes the app to crash
Date Thu, 11 Oct 2012 01:19:03 GMT


Glenn Lap commented on CB-415:

I can't seem to get around this problem with my app.  I have the exact error and description
of this issue.  It seems to work fine on my Galaxy Nexus (jelly bean), Galaxy Tab, and an
older phone running gingerbeard (Samsung Charge), but the company I am working for has deployed
the Moto Razr MAXX (ICS 4.0.4) and it just wont cooperate.  It gives that memory error (Out
of memory on a 31961104-byte allocation) after about 3 photo uploads using Cordova 2.1.  I
am thinking the Razr MAXX is the issue, but I don't have a work around.
thanks for any help you can spare,
