    Was trying to take a picture of myself using the back camera and couldn't locate the shoot button. Is there an app to use the volume to snap a pic? Front cam has bad quality.

    You know Apple took down the app that allowed Iphone users to do it cause they thought it would confuse people. Oh Apple...

    From what I understand, tasker will do this for you. However, it's a paid app. But it might be worth it because it does a ton of other things.

    If not, you can touch anywhere on the screen and hold, the camera will take a picture then, just be careful, because doing that will make the camera focus on whatever you are touching, so if you happen to put your finger where the display shows a can in the backgroud, your photo may be out of focus.

    Of course, if you are doing a self shot, odds are your face will take up a good portion of the screen, unless you have really long arms.
