Tired of unlocking your phone every time you want to click a picture? Is accessing your camera from your lock screen too slow on your device? Now, never miss a moment anymore with the Nexus Camera Widget.


New features:
Now you start recording videos right away from your lock screen very quickly. Panaroma and Photospere options also added. Swipe left to view clicked pictures.

Google provided a default lock screen camera widget,like in the Nexus 4 or Galaxy Nexus, to the Nexus 7 tablet which might be slow and unstable . This widget basically emulates that function. The only difference is that you need to TAP ON THE WIDGET for the camera to launch. We assure you that, this widget launches the camera FASTER THAN ANY OTHER in the market or even the stock camera widget.
IMPORTANT: Try to maintain only one instance of this widget. Remember, click on the widget to access camera!
IMPORTANT : Although, you can swipe left to view clicked pictures, you will not be able to access the previously existing pictures on your device
We are working on bringing an essence of greater functionality to this widget. Updates to this widget will be frequent.
We are determined to provide all support and would consider every feedback with utmost importance. Please rate us and give appropriate feedback, whether good or bad. Your feedback is very valuable to us.

    This app/widget can not be located anywhere on the phone. Your instructions to "swipe the area above PIN.." DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE.

    I dont understand why this has so many low ratings, this works Great! it sucks that you can use the camera like in the nexus 5 but oh well, this solves the problem. I dont know what I think of the image though.

    I have a nexus 7 2013, and the widget works fine except when I press it it says error connecting to camera. That sucks because then I have to put in my PIN and then press the camera button. It would go a lot faster had the app worked.
