CAMERA APP: I now open it with a long press on the "search button".

    I Mapped the long search button with the app Quick Launch by magouyaware
    for .99
    on the market to take me to the camera app. I just wanted a quick
    way to get to the camera app no matter what screen I was on or app I was in.
    I don't mind pressing the on screen button to take a shot once I get there, but
    I'd like to get there in a hurry. Should I have had to go this route? Maybe not.
    Did it solve my issue? Yes. Just wanted to share and I do realize this "work
    around" won't please everyone. :)

    PS. I still on occasion attempt to press the camera button that's present on the
    X (which I passed on to my son), but not the X2! LOLS!

    Nice! I wish Launcher Pro could do this. I'd rather not have to pay for that capability, but I do want it...

    I did something similar without paying a dime. Go into Settings>Applications and click on the last option "Double tap home launch". I use this to start up the camera. ;)

    Great tip for those that are either unaware of the option and/or don't
    already associate the double tap with another app or service.

    In my case I already am and I already do and therefore needed/wanted the
    ability to assign the long press on the search button to the camera since I
    wasn't using it for anything in particular. ;)

    Pure sex. As an android n00b, that helps greatly. Thanks!

    Being a previous iPhone user, I never got used to the fact of having a physical button so I just use the on screen ones.

    I just set the applications options to double tap for camera, and nothing happens when I double tap.
    What am I missing? Seems simple enough, but nothing.

    Thanks,

    My double tap is set to launch my music as that is the most used feature on my phone. I hate that they took the hard camera button away. Stupid. I have set one of my dock apps to my camera that way I always have quick access to it. I am using ADW Launcher but you can also do that with stock. Just long press any of the dock bar apps except the app drawer and replace with the camera or video camera app. I wish there was a camera setting to tap anywhere to take a picture. When taking self pictures it is hard to get that little icon. :mad:

    I use Go Launcher and it has a swipe up and down option. Swipe down is currently set to toggle the status bar. I set swipe up to launch the camera.
