tapshot for iphoneTapShot is a new camera app from Two Teeth Technologies, the developer of the impressive and popular QuickPix. TapShot changes the way you interact with your iPhone’s camera. It’s a gesture-based app, rather than a button-based app.

TapShot also gives you an amazing amount of feature customization, allowing you to build the interface that works for you. Read more after the jump. >>>>

TapShot puts the power and flexibility of the app into the action you assign for each gesture — swipes, taps, etc. You can even disable gestures to simplify the app. In the end, you can create a basic (or not so basic) camera that works the way you do. It’s an interesting concept, one that’s designed to simplify and speed up shooting.

If you’re a button-lover like me, you may be uncomfortable shooting with this app. I like the visual feedback of controls. Also, the user interface of the viewfinder cuts off the edges of the preview. Your image will be cropped a little wider than you see in the preview.

TapShot supports the full 8 megapixel resolution of the iPhone 4 and saves a ton of EXIF data, including geotags.

TapShot is launch sale priced at $0.99 in the App Store. Requirements: Compatible with iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (4th generation), iPad 2 Wi-Fi, and iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G. Requires iOS 5.0 or later.

Here’s the App Store description:

Simplicity, power and control, with FULL CUSTOMIZATION at your finger tips.

Tap anywhere and shoot a photo. Or let TapShot detect a face and shoot the picture for you. That’s all you really need to know about TapShot to start taking better photos, but there is much, much more.

First, TapShot uses a lot of gestures to control the camera. Swiping, pinching, tapping, etc. Why? Because the last thing you want to be doing is looking for a small button when your chance to capture the perfect moment arrives. Gestures are easy to make without even looking at the screen.

Secondly, TapShot puts you in control by letting you “build” your own camera. Everyone has their own ideas of how their camera should operate. So, for the first time ever, we give you control.

Like to always burst a few photos to make sure you get a good one? Great! Just set the swipe direction of your choice to be a burst of 3, or maybe 5 photos. And the best part is that assigning gestures to camera actions is extremely simple and intuitive.

Figure out how you like to take pictures, and “build” your own camera with TapShot!
