    Hi
    As title suggests, has any clever little folk created an app to use the L & R buttons for taking pics yet?! I reckon this would become a must have for any xplay users.
    Cheers :)

    Great app, but what about the bigger problem...Not having any hardware buttons mapped to opening the camera app? I would like the L+R flippers pushed simultaneously to open the app, instead of having to have an icon on the homescreen dedicated to the camera.

    Eh, I'm not really with you on this point. There was no dedicated camera button on my Fascinate and I didn't miss it - I have a shortcut on the launcher bar on my home screen (dxTop) so it is only ever a click away. Those shoulder buttons can get pressed too easily when I'm holding my Play...

    The option would be nice for those that want it would be nice. Having both flippers depressed at the same time for more than 1 second isn't the easiest thing to do, so you wouldn't have to worry about it opening without your consent. :p
