Gamblus has repurposed the iPhone’s microphone into a button to take photos courtesy of its new app, Camera Mic.

Camera Mic operates the camera using sounds or physical touch on the mic. Once the mic is touched, the app senses the audio level spike, triggering the camera to take a picture.

Key features of the app include a full photo library viewer, one-touch preview of most recent pictures and a sensitivity meter to adjust and test the mic to customise ways for taking photos.

The one downside of the app is taking a photo when you don’t want to – loud noises in close proximity to the mic can trigger the shutter.

Camera Mic  at $1.19 is an innovative way to take photos on your iPhone, and is available now from the iTunes App Store.
