Thread: 'Camrix' Gives You the Ability to See Through Your iPhone's Camera Lens From Anywhere

    Default 'Camrix' Gives You the Ability to See Through Your iPhone's Camera Lens From Anywhere

    Photography is a very vital part of the iOS device lifestyle; Apple puts a lot of time and effort into nice camera and photography technology in their devices, and users use it frequently. Sometimes, however, the camera is too far out of reach, and we just need a quick way to take a photo.

    A new jailbreak tweak called Camrix by iOS developer iNasser is now available in Cydia that lets you see out of your camera's lens from anywhere in iOS, whether you're on your Home Screen, or even within an application. As you can see above, the tweak opens a small viewfinder in the middle of the screen (the size and shape is configurable), and you can move it where you want it, or close out of it when you're done.

    You can tap once with one finger on the viewfinder to take a photograph, tap once on the viewfinder with two fingers to switch to the front-facing camera, tap and hold and drag to move the viewfinder around on the screen, tap and hold and drag the viewfinder down to the bottom of the display where the "x" is to close the viewfinder, and more. Below, you can see the "x" button when moving the viewfinder around:

    The tweak adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can configure much of the tweak's functionality to your liking:

    From here, you can:

    • Read a guide on the features of Camrix
    • Enable or disable the tweak on demand
    • Configure an Activator gesture to show the camera viewfinder
    • Configure the default camera that is shown when you open Camrix
    • Configure the default flash mode when you open Camrix
    • Configure the media quality
    • Configure additional ways to dismiss Camrix when you're done using it
    • Configure the size, shape, and border color of Camrix
    • Configure video settings for Camrix

    Camrix is available now in Cydia's BigBoss repository for $1.99. The tweak requires iOS iOS 7 or later (iOS 8 included) to be installed, and requires Activator so that you can open the Camrix interface on demand. Check it out!

    Requirements: iOS 7.0-8.1.2, Activator

    It is interesting and all but what purpose does it serve?
    It is not stealth so that point is mute, and my camera works just fine.
    Not sure why someone would need to surf/app & take a pictures at the same time.
