    Default Snappy - The Fastest Camera App Available: Take Pictures from Any App
    How many times have you wanted to take that perfect photo with your iPhone and missed it trying to close your app and open the camera app? How many times have you tried to launch the Camera app and wait, and wait, and wait before you can take a photograph? How many times have your friends yelled at you to hurry up and take the damn photo?

    Well folks, those days are gone. At least for us Jailbroken users once again! Today I bring you a hot new app available in cydia called Snappy developed by Marc Vaillant.

    Snappy gives you the ability to take photos from any app on your iPhone without having to close it and launch the camera app. This includes your lockscreen! You can take photos directly from the lockscreen in a matter of 1 or 2 seconds! Literally!

    All you have to do is tap and hold the status bar (the topmost bar) to open the camera and your ready to snap; compare that to the 6+ seconds it can take to exit a running application and launch the native camera app.



    This app is available in Cydia now, for a small fee of $1.99.

    On a side note, Snappy works in harmony with qTweeter.

    Yep, that's what I'm worried about this app. But it looks awesome

    I just don't get why he didn't call it SnAppy. Seems like a missed opportunity to me.

    Snappy dev here.

    Thanks for all the comments. Here are some answers to questions.

    1. This app does *not* interfere with SBSettings.
    2. It is *not* a memory hog.
    3. Playback of video works from the camera roll, I've just gotten a 3gs and will be working on getting video record to work as well, so expect to see that as an update.

    Best,
    Marc

    You also can add 'Camera' widget and setup hotkey for running QuickWidgets.

    You`ll can shot over any app and lockscreen, almost instantly (much faster then default app work) and all this for FREE

    Does it conflict with SBSettings? I would rather have SBSettings than this app if I had to choose.

    EDIT: Saw the the dev's post, never mind...

    Im sorry to say this but this app is useless especially since it costs money. I set my iPhone to bring up the camera with a double home button click. Its just as fast and doesn't run in the background.
    I'm MYAATT DAAAMOOON!!!

    And I have the double home button bring up the iPod controls. This app is totally useful! Just not to you...great post.

    Marc,

    Sent you and email, but thought I'd post here.

    Great app...loving it and good work.

    Two request.

    1. Could we get the option of having the shutter screen? Or even code in a red led type flash on the screen when the pic is taken. I was in my company's data center yesterday taking pics and couldn't here the click. Would love a visual queue that the pic was taken.

    2. More importantly, could we get the option to MMS from the camera roll like the stock camera roll?

    3. Just thought of this one and it's minor, but you could code a "saving" to appear on screen while it's saving to the camera rool. I'd rather be taking more pics than waiting for the current saving screen to update because I clicked it to soon.

    Thank you and keep up the great work...

    EJ
