Camera Lock Button for the HTC HD2
After seeing the function of being able to use the dedicated camera button on a Windows Phone 7 device while the other keys were locked, MilaCzeque decided to create a small application for the same purpose on the HD2.
Camera Lock Button programs the phone’s Home button to activate the camera despite the device being locked (as the HD2 has no dedicated camera button). However, by making use of the HD2’s proximity sensor, MilaCzeque’s app ensures that you won’t accidentally activate the camera while the phone is in your pocket. If the display is switched off, you must press the Home button twice to access the camera features.
To give the application a try yourself, download the .cab from the application thread.
