    Odd request but is there an app that will take pics with a low image quality image like snapchat. All it needs to do is take/save pictures to the camera roll, ideally it opens/launches the camera a little faster (but doesn't have to) faster than the default app but takes a pic (lower quality, no autozoom, HDR) as soon as you click the picture button.

    A lot of times I find myself seeing something funny/worth taking a picture of but it takes a few more seconds to get the pic.

    I have cameratweak but that is built into the main app and I think you have to manually change the image quality each time and disable the other features I listed above.

    By hacking the plist file, you can force the stock Camera app to default to shooting at lower resolution too. Then, not even CameraTweak will be needed.

    thank you for the suggestion, but I of course have to make it difficult and Don't want to tamper with the Default/High qulity camera but rather have another camera app that snap pics super quick.

    I guess I could use snapchat, but that only allows for one pic and then it shows the pic so you have to manually save it, I was looking for something that launches within a second and you can snap a pic/start a video immediately after clicking the capture button, rather than wait for the default/HQ camera to load its functions.
