Snappy5: The Fastest Way to Snap Pictures With Your iPhone

By , Jan 10, 2012

I know I’m not alone in my predicament, but I can’t count the number of times I’ve missed a good photo opportunity because I was either too slow on the draw, or iOS itself was too slow to load the camera UI.

Snappy5 is a tweak that aims to minimize, if not eliminate that annoying issue. It works by using Activator to quickly pull up the Camera app and automatically snapping a photo or filming a video.

If you find yourself missing a lot of great memories, then you definitely want to check this out…

Snappy5 will set you back $1.99 on the Cydia store, but it’s more than worth it if it helps you permanently recall some of life’s most interesting moments that you would have otherwise missed.

You will need a jailbroken device running iOS 5 to install Snappy5, but the good news is that those who purchased older versions of the tweak can download the update for free.

Will you use Snappy?

    Snappy’s the reason I have to stay jailbroken. I could deal with mostly everything else, but no Snappy no thanks. Plus, Marc is great with the support. Great dev worth supporting.

    what is the difference between using this tweak compared to setting up an activator gesture to open up the camera app? seems redundant.

    Just use Activator to assign double click home button to open camera. Easy and free!
