Description Ewald Petutschnig 2015-01-07 04:22:13 UTC
Camera view does not return to calling app

Step 1. Xamarin.Media.MediaPicker.TakePhotoAsync() opens camera view
Step 2. Switch to other app (e.g. Google Now) while camera view is open
Step 3. Return to camera view and confirm photo
Step 4. Google Now is visible

I was not able to reproduce the issue with the description given.  Also note that in the examples section of the README for the repo it is suggested to use GetTakePhotoUI and not TakePhotoAsync.
