SnapTap – Take pictures with your volume controls

Author: openhebrew  //  Category: News

Tired of taking pictures only to aim for the virtual small camera button in the bottom ? Want to take self-portrait pictures on your iPhone but couldn’t till now ?

Welcome SnapTap, a program which allows you to use most of the camera picture taking apps (including the built-in one) and take pictures easily using the volume controls.

This app is available on the Cydia Store via BigBoss for 99 cents.

    Awesome! This has been on my wish list for over a year. Snapture used to have it, Camera Zoom in the app store has it, but I prefer the native camera app. It works flawlessly for both still photos and video. $1 well spent.

    Does this conflict with the irealquicksms controls?

    Thank you so much for making this tweak available! And for making it only 99c!

    If you can do this, are you interested in making an app that will allow us to use volume up/down to rewind/pause (or do other functions, perhaps 4 functions if we allow double-click!) in the iPod app? I am hoping for this b/c I listen to a lot of audiobooks/podcasts. Would be glad to pay for this functionality :)
