Github user dpolivy commented on the pull request:
    @jcesarmobile Is this a quirk just because it's only implemented on iOS, Android, and
    @infil00p Actually, it is consistent on Android, and has nothing to do with whether the
device has a library icon on their Camera activity (I'm not sure that any do?). We're simply
showing an Intent Chooser that lets the user choose which Activity they want to launch, and
the list includes all of the camera and file activities found on their device. That is consistent
across all Android devices. And it's using the exact same intents that would be used if you
chose to show the camera or library. Give it a try and see the behavior for yourself.
    I still think this feature is valuable and provides a better user experience in certain
circumstances. We've had success using this in our app, and being a good citizen I've tried
to make it available for others to take advantage of. There are some native limitations here,
but if you truly wanted a consistent camera experience and UI across all platforms, you'd
basically have to write to the raw camera APIs on each platform which is a significant departure
from the current approach of this plugin.

If your project is set up for it, you can reply to this email and have your
reply appear on GitHub as well. If your project does not have this feature
enabled and wishes so, or if the feature is enabled but not working, please
contact infrastructure at or file a JIRA ticket
with INFRA.
