I am an android novice. My question is : Is there any free app to take pictures or videos using any phone key, like power or volume up/volume down, without touching the screen button? I checked the other answers here, but they talks about cyanogenmod or a paid app.


Check the following Android apps on Google Play

  • Welcome to Android Enthusiasts. Could you explain why you are recommending these 2 apps. Why not others? – THelper Dec 27 '13 at 12:26

There are many apps. You can go with Vosco which is my favorite one but without key mapping (no hardware button to take pic) but a great one. Otherwise, Camera360 is a good choice. Also you can go with CameraMx (or Mx Camera maybe) or Line Camera or Cymera (this one has a great range of photo editing tools as well). All of these can be customized to take pictures with volume key or so.

  • Vosco? Searching for this on Google Play gives 0 results. – THelper Dec 27 '13 at 12:28
  • yes boss! :) Vosco Cam. Recently launched for android. – androCoder-BD Dec 28 '13 at 3:03
  • I will edit it with the link once I go to home. :) – androCoder-BD Dec 28 '13 at 3:04
  • @THelper : Think he meant VSCO – NeonGlow Dec 31 '13 at 3:52
