• 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.

      At some point in the last few months, Snappy started crashing on me every other time I try to use it. I use it to snap one picture, it works; I try to use it to snap a second picture, and my springboard crashes to safe mode. It happens whether I open it from the icon or any activator action, it's always the same.

      I'm on iPhone 4S running 5.1.1. I've tried permissions repairs, reinstalling, name it. Any ideas? Any chance of a fix?
