And you thought iOS 5.1’s new Lock screen camera was fast? FastCam is an upcoming jailbreak tweak that allows you to access your iPhone’s camera API using a simple Activator action.

The nice thing about FastCam is that it works anywhere, even at the Lock screen. In fact, it’s faster than the Lock screen camera feature found on iOS 5, and still faster after the improvements made with iOS 5.1.
