Best 5 Cydia Camera Apps For iPhone

The 8 MP camera of the iPhone is a reliable tool for iPhoneographers. I know that most of you enjoy taking photos and capturing the best moments of their lives, by if you do not have the right tools, all these great photos might turn out not that great.

If you want to use your iPhone’s camera at its maximum capacity along with some useful options, it is time to look out for the best Cydia apps for camera feature. The native iPhone camera does not offer so many features as we might expect. As an alternative, Cydia Store is the right place to search for all those apps. In this respect, I want to show you some of the best Cydia apps for the camera feature so that you can take amazing photos.

Keep in mind the fact that if you want to have access to all those great Cydia apps and tweaks, you need to start jailbreak first. Fortunately, for all iOS 6.1.2 devices, we have the possibility to use Evasion, the jailbreak tool in order to start untethered iOS 6.1.2 jailbreak. The following apps are all compatible with iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S as well. So, download the right tools and start taking amazing photos using your iPhone.

Must Have Camera Apps

1. Camera Tweak

The iPhone camera is great, but it does not offer all features users need. For example, the native camera feature does not own a timer option. This makes individual photos harder. However, with the amazing Camera Tweaks, you can add multiple new options and features to your camera. It offers separate focus if you want to focus your attention on different parts of the photos, and you can also balance the exposure of your photos in order to take even better pictures. In the same time, the tweak offers the timer mode, for video and for photos, the feature that all users want.

Another notable option is represented by the white balance lock. If you want to add this amazing camera tweak on your iPhone, all you have to do is to head to Cydia Store. Within the BigBoss repo, the Camera Tweak costs $0.99, and it is compatible with iOS 6 on iPhone 5, 4, 4S and 3GS.

2. InstaSnap

Another useful camera app is InstaSnap. This tweak lets you open Instagram camera faster, an extraordinary feature especially for those of you who use to post on Instagram parts of their lives. Now, with InstaSnap, the Instagram camera can be launched right from the Notification center. You will easily be able to notice the “Tap to Snap” button, which will reveal the Instagram camera. In this way, you will be able to keep your friends posted with anything new that happens to you.

In case you are interested, the tweak is free, and it is also available in the ModMyi repo, within Cydia Store.

3. CamFast

I am sure you all know Activator. That Cydia tweak allows you to assign various gestures in order to launch different features or apps. The CamFast works with Activator. So first, you need to download and install Activator and then, you can make use of CamFast tweak properly. Let me tell you some things related to this amazing tweak. It is all about accessibility and utility. With this neat tweak, you will be able to launch your stock camera from anywhere. Therefore, even if you are running a different app, you will be able to launch the camera without stopping the respective app.

In order to assign a gesture for the camera feature, you need to head to Settings, in the Activator section and choose the gesture you want for launching camera. It is simple and convenient. In case you want to download this amazing Cydia tweak, find out that it is available free of charge in the BigBoss repository. In the same time, CamFast is compatible with iOS 6, and it runs on iPhone and iPad.

4. Kamera

The Kamera tweak offers accessibility and utility in the same time. What this tweak does is basically offering you quicker access to the front camera or the rear one. You can switch between cameras with a single tap of a finger. Moreover, you will be able to access the camera feature with the front and the rear option right from the NotificationCenter. The tweak does not offer many interesting features, but it is worth to try it up, especially when it is free of charge in the ModMyi repo. It is compatible with all iPhones running on iOS 6 or later.

5. FlashCam

The last tweak I want to mention to my list of 5 Cydia camera apps for iPhone is the FlashCam. If you ask me, this tweak is exactly what I need in order to take quick pictures. FlashCam offers you quicker access to the camera feature and flashlight in the same time, right from the lockscreen. In this way, you will not have to unlock your device in order to take a picture. Moreover, the tweak allows you to assign other cameras apps such as Instagram camera or Camera+ instead of the native stock Camera app.

Therefore, now, you can take pictures using your favorite camera app right from the lockscreen. FlashCam is free of charge, and it is available in the BigBoss repo.
