Date Mon, 06 Jul 2015 21:33:04 GMT

Github user muratsu commented on the pull request:
    I would like to hear everyone's opinion on this before going with the code review.
    Showing the photo gallery on bottom left seems like a custom view behavior for the stock
Camera app. I've tried this with couple apps and none of them, except WhatsApp had similar
    I think we should think about enabling custom camera UI scenarios instead of adding more
platform quirks. But as noted it's a big undertaking.
    Note: In WhatsApp nothing happens when you actually tap on the black thumbnail.

> There are many scenarios where an app might allow a user to take a picture via the camera,
OR choose a photo from their library. With the current camera plugin implementation, the developer
must first present some type of chooser UI to allow the user to initiate either the camera,
or the library.
> A potentially more efficient approach is to launch the camera by default, and within
the camera UI provide an option to switch over to the library -- similar to the way the default
Camera app works in iOS.
> I am working on a PR to add this functionality via a new CameraOptions setting.
