3 Ways to use:
* Home screen widget: one click shooting with no preview, fastest way to activate. (Note: Don't move the app to SD or else you can't place it as widget. This is an Android limitation.)
* Blank screen with no backlight: Volume Key/touch anywhere to shoot, you don't even need to know where you are clicking.
* Opacity adjustable view-finder preview: Sometime you want to peek a bit.

2 Shooting Modes:
* Single shot: one picture per activation.
* Continuous shooting/Time-lapse: shoot at interval. Work even after screen is switched off.

2 Capturing Techniques:
* Frame grabbing from the preview video stream: faster reaction time, and to workaround shutter sound issue
* Normal picture taking: for fine picture quality.
