Switching between the front and rear iPhone camera is already simple. The jailbreak tweak FlipCam seeks to make this process even easier and faster than normal. For those who have trouble tapping the small icon in the corner, FlipCam provides an alternative way to change cameras.
Once installed, FlipCam does only one thing and has no settings or options to configure. To switch cameras just press and hold within the camera viewfinder. Anywhere on the live preview works, in addition to the usual small icon in the corner.
While FlipCam makes it easier and faster to switch between the two cameras, there is one drawback. The stock Camera app normally enters AE/AF lock mode on a long press, freezing the focus and exposure. This mode will be replaced by FlipCam, so while a tap and focus still works, focus lock goes away.FlipCam is available from the BigBoss repository on Cydia for free. Jailbreaking iOS 7.1.x is now possible with Pangu. Check here for instructions on how to jailbreak iOS 7.0.x with evasi0n 7.
