    occipital had the decency [when they pulled clearcam from cydia] to tell me to just re-add their repo and i could download again. stand up fellows @occipital

    so for apps that really matter. looks like only the native iphone camera is functioning.

    [no offense nick]

    The side buttons that controls volume is also used for the camera options.It captures very good quality images. I hope people enjoys it.

    Hello all,
    I tried it and it worked as advertised. Volume control not affected. Moreover, I tried it on native camera application and Camera Genius application (3rd party) and worked on both.
    Definitely recommended

    Thos 'thieves' as you put it were very good at emailing all registered users telling them how to get their money back if they had to pay again from the app store.
    The author did his best - but he is only one person. He certainly never intended to rip anyone off and I'm not sure what more he could have done.

    this is the first im hearing about that i never did receive that email. ive contacted them 3 times and have never heard back once from them. so if you have an inside way to contact this individual i would utilize that option. thanks.

    ^^ i appreciate the effort in your post. unfortunatelly the link from your original post no longer shares any information.

    after looking at some of your responses to peoples questions and a link to snaptures Q&A it seems they were only offering for 1 week [looks like in september] so im out of luck. still doesnt explain why they didnt contact me or at least explain via a response to my emails that i sent to them.

    well seeing as how the photoshop app does all the picture customizations on my iphone that i need and its not worth buying a second time around. [even though its like $1.99 or $2.99 on sale right now] im just gonna stick with clearcam as my secondary. RIP snapture.

    Tried it with two third-party apps, Camera Plus and Tripod. It captured photos with both, however with Tripod it took the picture immediately rather than starting the image stabilizing process, which pretty much makes the app pointless. Still a useful tweak though.

    Of course if you wanted to change the volume of the music while you were this app ... you would be out of luck!

    You would only be out of luck if your camera app was open. This tweak does not automatically snap a picture anytime you press the volume controls. You need to have the Camera app open to use this function.
