QuickCamera is a free and open source application that lets you quickly launch the camera app (normally or from the lock screen) with a simple gesture that involves twisting your wrist twice, quickly. It's the same gesture that's used to launch the camera app on the Moto X. Pull out your phone, perform the gesture and the camera app will be ready to take wonderful photos. No need to wake the phone or press any buttons.
Why did I make this?
I am a big fan of Moto X's gesture controls and I really liked the gesture to launch the camera from anywhere, by twisting your wrist quickly 2 times. It's really handy, but unfortunately not available to other devices, so I decided to replicate the feature and bring it to all Android devices. It involved weeks of experimentation, but I finally have a working alpha version ready.
