30 Second Tips - Quick Camera

This is the 11th post in a series called 30 Second Tips.  My goal is to show you how to do some neat stuff in 30 seconds or less!

If you updated your iPhone or iPod Touch last week to iOS 5.1 you will find that Apple added a nifty little feature to the lock screen.  Note:  This does not work on the iPad.

To access your camera quickly all you have to do is put your finger on the camera icon in the lower right and swipe up.  You will be immediately taken to the Camera app and can start taking photos without having to slide to unlock, enter a passcode, and navigate to the Camera app.

Once you are done taking photos you can swipe down from the top of the screen to lock your device.
