    Tested and working on iPhone 4 / 4.0.1

    "You know with a simple URL in Safari on the iPhone you can enable it? Yup, a simple URL.

    Open up Mobile Safari and type in:

    camplus://enablevolumesnap

    And there you have it by pressing the volume up button in Camera+ you can take a picture. To disable it just type camplus://disablevolumesnap . Its a neat feature if you ask me to allow you to take much steadier photos by holding the iPhone with two hands."

    ***UPDATE: August 12, 2010***

    Apple, in their infinite wisdom, has pulled Camera+ from the app store.... Sorry Folks!!!

    Partly (haha)...

    Apparently, geotagging works within the Camera+ application, and when uploading from the Camera+ application to the supported sites. However, when pictures are exported from the Camera+ application to the iPhone 4 Camera Roll, the 'Places' function does not indicate the imported photos were geotagged (alas, they don't show up...).

    Downloaded this earlier today after seeing it on Gizmodo. Ingenious work & I'm glad to see more and more people circumnavigating Apple's stranglehold on their device (read that Apple rejected the volume-shutter design in the original app because they said it would confuse users).

    I can't even get Camera+ to load. It crashes each time I try to open it. :(

    I'm very excited about this! Makes the phone feel like a real camera. That's besides the fact this app is amazing.

    Can you leave this enabled or do you need to disable it?

    No, no, you can leave it enabled no problem. It only functions as a shutter button within the Camera+ application. BUT, please remember, and perhaps copy to your Notes App, the command for disabling just incase....

    Has anyone even tried to disable it after the enable? It doesn't work (at least for me).

    No problem disabling it.
    Maybe make sure you kill the app from the multitask tray first before running the disable command.

    Yep, did that. Even repeated the procedure a few times....no dice. The only thing I didn't do was reboot. Ended up deleting and reinstalling the app.

    IP4, 4.0.1

    For those of you who are jailbroken. Snap Tap seems to work on my Iphone 4, 4.0.1 with a older version of mobile substrate installed. 3226 I believe

    "FastSnap" in Cydia does the same with the default Camera app. ;)
