Quick take

Immediately takes a photo with back camera, then front camera, then back camera—all without showing the image preview at all—stitches it together, then asks if you want to save it.

I built this shortcut as a way to test turning off the image preview on the Take Photo action – and realized it could actually be used to discretely capture a scene when you might not want the person to see you using your phone.

This was inspired by tense situations on the BART train in the Bay Area – sometimes I’ve wanted to document a situation in case it was helpful later on, but was also concerned about obviously taking photos and agitating the person.

Vibrates in between each take so you can subtly know if you likely got the shot or not.
