SnapTap Updated for 4.0 – Make Volume Buttons Snap Photos

Available In: Cydia       Price: $0.99  

This app allows you to take pictures or video with the volume buttons instead of trying to hit the little button on the screen. It should help you to keep the camera more still and keep from blurry photos. This only works when the camera app is open or other apps using the camera feature. The news here is that it had been updated to work with 4.0 firmware so now you can use it to take HD 720p video! This is one of my top jailbreak apps that I just gotta have.

Note: In Cydia the notes for the app say it hasn’t been updated for iPhone 4.0. I’m guessing that means the device. Either the notes haven’t been updated or it just works. I’ve tried this on an iPhone 4 4.0.1 and an iPhone 3GS 4.0.1 and both work great!

  1. Camera+ just sent an update to Apple with this feature in it. If it guess rejected again, it’s nice to know we’ll have this option. If you haven’t checked that app, you should. It’s really nice! The only problem is that it’s not as fast to be up and running with as the default app, or that other jailbreak app that calls the camera instantly.

  2. hmm – this sounds good – but i’m skeptical because of the 2 notes that says it doesn’t work on the iphone 4.

    i know you said it does – but is that a fluke. hate to buy it and it doesn’t work.

    tried it on more than one phone?

  3. just bought and tried it. works absolutely fine on iphone 4 on 4.0.1. clearly worth the price :)

  4. I just installed it, and it works perfect, but only with the native camera app, no with 3rd party apps

  5. bought & tried on 3GS, IOS jb 4.0.0 – doesn’t work

  6. the new 1.1.1 update makes it work with 3rd party apps + works on all devices on os 3.x and 4.x :)

    Yeah, well I just purchased it on 06/12/11 and it does not work with MOST of my 3rd party apps, including Camera+, which is what I really wanted it for. So disappointed that I wasted $$$ on it. :(
