    Is there an app that will let you take pics using the volume up and down hard buttons since there is no cam button on the sides?

    Fingers on top/bottom of both sides = more stability. And even if you can hold it that way in a manner that is equally stable, the ability to shoot by squeezing in the same direction that you are already applying pressure is incredibly more stable than pressing in a perpendicular direction (ie. squeezing your fingers together, vs pushing half of your screen forward causing rotation). Plus, it's just easier.

    Yeah, I know that's why they have a 1-2 second delay after you press the screen (to allow you to get the thing stable again). But just today that delay caused me to miss the picture of my son laughing and wearing a silly hat, because during that delay he saw me taking a picture and snatched it off his head before it finally snapped the photo.

    Which brings up a further question for me.

    Is there a camera app that both:
    1) Can assign the button to the physical volume keys?
    2) Has no delay when taking the picture?
