Quick Launch iPhone Camera App In Video Recording Mode [iPad Also]


There are many times I feel the default camera app runs really slow at time, in the past we had discussed ways with which you could make iphone camera launch faster but when you want to quickly record a video of something but as most of don’t record video very often with iphone camera so the camera app normally open in default photo capture mode.

So, before you can start recording some moment, you will need to launch the camera and then wait for the camera shutter to open and then you need to tap again to move iphone to video recording mode which usually takes like 5-8 seconds or sometimes more.

After some searching we found out two apps which could really save your time specially when you quickly want to just record a video and then minimize the camera app on iphone. First app is called Capture — The Quick Video Camera [$0.99] – Its like a record button for your home screen. It immediately starts recording video after launch and saves the video to your Camera Roll after quit by pressing the home button on your iphone or ipad. This app works for all apple devices running iOS 4.0 or later.
