Experts' Expert: Quickest way to snap an iPhone pic
Wrote Kit Eaton in the July 4 "App Smart" feature in the New York Times, "QuickShot for 99 cents on iOS... is designed to be the fastest way to snap a photo when you really need to. Press the icon, it starts up, snaps a photo, saves and closes the app again. SuperFastCam, free on Android, does much the same, but for video."
For 99 cents I'll try it.
I can't tell you how many times I've lost a picture I wanted to take right now because I couldn't get to my iPhone's camera quickly enough — or found it was set to Movie mode and, by the time I'd realized it and switched to Camera, lost the shot.

clifyt, that's not the case: From the lockscreen you need to 1) Scroll upward to open the Camera app, then 2) Touch the screen to shoot the pic. Using this app you simply touch the icon from the lockscreen. One gesture as opposed to native two = superior ease of use in my (and Paul Biba's) book(s).

Much faster to snap the photo from the lockscreen.
If the cam is spacy, it would be spacy from the app as well...

Got some pretty poor reviews on the App Store, but a search also revealed QuickShot! which looks even more useful and which I bought.

That's the Android app I didn't know I wanted. Thanks, Joe!
