    Is there a j/b app that add the ability for you to take a picture with the volume keys in the stock photo application?

    Yes Snap Tap... It works perfectly with my iP4's camera app. It's about $1 and change on Cydia. Well worth it.

    Really cool...post back if it works well. Does it matter with volume is pressed or can you configure it to either?

    Does anyone know if SnapTap would work with Activator? I'm waiting for Snappy to update since I can load using Activate with a swipe of the screen. Makes taking spur of the moment pictures a lot more convenient.

    Doesn't matter which button you press.

    Does snap tap really work with iPhone 4? I thought I read the package and it said it didn't?

    Yes it does. Works like a charm on mine. It didn't work for the first couple of days.

    snappy beta is out.. you need to email the dev and he will give you the repo source. so far it doesnt have full function but its working nice. volume buttons are obviously a plus.

    I 100% recommend it! It works flawlessly. This is how the phone should have been set up. I'm going to go out there and say this is one of the top 10 reasons to jailbreak, IMO.

    I really want to be able to take pictures with the volume buttons but that's how quick compose is triggered with biteSMS. Can anyone say if there's a conflict between the two?

    with the snappy beta... the volume control does not show up on the screen at all.. once you are in the camera app it will just snap the photo. hope this helps.

    SnapTap overwrites Quick Compose when the camera app is launched
