Quick Camera Access w/Nova Launcher Installed?

    I want tb able to whip out my Galaxy Note - whose screen would be locked at that moment; make a gesture, push something, or whatever... and have the camera open and available for use.

    One continuous motion.... whip it out and *Click!*.

    Or am I just wishing?

    (I think I see something if TouchWiz were my launcher... but it's not and I don't want to change from Nova...)

    Use WidgetLocker for your lockscreen and add a camera shortcut to it. One short swipe - camera is open and ready.

    3rd party lock screens
    (or ones built in if custom rom)
    will allow you to assign a action with a swipe =]

    This is what I do. Plus you don't have to worry about your 3rd party lock screen and 3rd party launcher playing nice together since it is the same dev.

    Settings > Security > Lock screen wallpaper seems like it only lets me change the image, not the functionality.

    I see something called "EDT Tweaks", but it is not available in GooglePlay and that probably means I don't know enough to mess with it.

    Can somebody aim me in the right direction for changing lock screens?

    Oops... Now I see... You don't change lock screens. You install an app that changes the screen for you. "WidgetLocker" is the one I'm currently fooling around with.

    I got it to open the camera, but the native password-pattern screen still keeps popping between clicking the WidgetLocker icon and the camera's coming up.

    I'm guessing I will have to sacrifice the security of the password-pattern screen by somehow disabling it.
