Camera Lock Button for the HTC HD2

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.

Hi! My name's Ben, and I'm proud to be one of the news writers at xda-developers. I live near London and have spent the last ten years wasting all the money I get my hands on on new gadgets with which to fulfil my technolust. I first got into HTC phones when I found a Lobster 700TV (the HTC Monet) at a very good price, and I'm ashamed to say that I couldn't have cared less about what operating system the phone was running as long as I could watch The Simpsons on the bus. As fellow Monet owners might know, the 'TV' part of the phone's alternate title was somewhat deceiving and was completely abandoned by the service providers in England. However, by then I had already fallen in love with the freedom Windows Mobile had given me. After the Monet came a Universal, with a Touch Pro following that. I've just bought a G1 (yeah, I know, get with the times!) because I'm really interested in Android as a budding operating system and don't think I could ever cope with a 'dumbphone' now that I know what's on offer. Although I haven't contributed much to the site in terms of programming or cooking help, I hope that I can give a bit back by letting you guys know what's new through my articles. If you have any questions, suggestions or complaints about those articles, feel free to get in touch with me via PM using the URL above.
