High Resolution Support and Voice Commands now available with OneShot 4.0

I’m pleased to announce that today OneShot received the next major update that bumps the app to version 4.0. The update contains some great improvements as well as some very interesting features.

High resolution support

With today’s release, OneShot gets full resolution support for the Nokia Lumia 1020 and Nokia Lumia 1520. That means you are now able to take pictures with over 38 MP (20 MP for 1520). If you have the Lumia 1020 or 1520, you will see the high resolutions to be available for all aspect ratios (4:3, 16:9, 1:1). Get even more out of your beautiful photos taken with OneShot!

JPEG compression adjustment

Besides enabling high resolution support we also improved the default compression rate of taken photos. We decreased the compression rate so that your pictures have more quality by default. Moreover, you can adjust this option in the settings menu and choose between High, Medium and Low.

Voice control

With today’s release, I’m very excited to say that OneShot 4.0 gets voice control so that you are now able to use your voice for triggering the shutter release. Just enable voice control in the settings menu and start taking pictures by using the phrases “take picture” or “take photo”. We currently support English as the only language for voice control, so you need at least one English language installed on your Windows Phone.

In order to be able to use voice commands on your Windows Phone, you need to go to the Windows Phone’s settings menu and check the option “Enable Speech Recognition Service”. This is a central place to have control over speech recognition for all apps.


OneShot 4.0 introduces GPS tagging of your photos, so your pictures will now contain the exact location they were taken at. If you do not wish to have this option enabled, please go to the Windows Phone settings menu, swipe over to “applications” and then choose “photos+camera”. There you can adjust the option “Include location info in pictures I take”.

Macro favorite button

OneShot’s favorite button has been one of the significant features since the first release, so it is just natural that we extended this feature with some more options over time. The latest release of OneShot receives another favorite button which switches the current capture mode to the macro mode.


Today’s release includes some new features and improvements that help you to get even more out of your photos. Go and get OneShot 4.0 in the Windows Phone Store, it’s free:
