SciLor’s LeoCameraAnyKey v0.1 – Use Your Volume Keys As a Camera Trigger

XDA member scilor found that many new HTC devices lack important hardware keys. For instance, the HD2 hasn’t got a camera button, but in order to shoot a photo, you’ll have to press a soft button on the screen. To fix this issue, Scilor developed a little application to extend the functionality of the volume keys, allowing them to trigger your camera to shoot a picture.

.Net Compact Framework is required to run this application. This app should work on other devices as well.

For more information and downloads, please visit the application thread.
