An iOS app, Fast Camera, aims to help people never miss an important photo again. When the user launches Fast Camera, your device will instantly start taking pictures.

Fast Camera, which is usually 99 cents, is free in the App Store today.

  • Upon launching the app, you will begin to hear a camera shutter sound almost instantly. Fast Camera is already taking pictures, and it won't stop until you press the stop button. You can see the number of pictures that have been taken in the lower-left corner of the screen.

  • Once you press Stop, you can tap on the photo count to review your photos, or Start to resume taking pictures.

  • When reviewing the photos, you'll be able to save the good photos to your camera roll. Once you are done reviewing, the leftover photos will be deleted.

  • In the settings of Fast Camera you can change the picture quality, the default camera, and set a delay. The delay will begin counting down once you launch the app, followed by a barrage of photos being taken, again requiring you to press Stop to stop taking photos.

Fast Camera can take up to 800 photos a minute using the front camera on the iPhone 4S, and 720 photos per minute on the iPad 2.

I put the 800 photos a minute claim on the iPhone 4S to the test, and was able to take 783, 785, and 789 photos in 60 seconds. So I fell a bit short of the 800, but 789 photos in a minute is still very impressive.
