    Is there a way I could set up an app to run in the background and open up and activate if you say double tapped the volume down button?

    Unlikely with official API ... :apple: wouldn't allow you to change the use of standard buttons like those. It would be against their overall concept and desired UX.
    If possible when jail broken I don't know ...

    Something learned: there is actually an API, see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7528443/iphone-detect-volume-keys-press

    Might be possible to build something on it; still it would be against the expected Ux

    It’s specifically mentioned in guidelines that you can’t use certain buttons for any other function.
    (even if you find a way to do it), and the volume buttons are included.
