It seems that the iPod touch is now seen as the “iPhone without the phone part” by many of us. It is true to an extent that the iPod lacks a number of specs in comparison with its cellular Riva. Not only hardwares are weak, but some software apps have limited approach. Due to these lacks, it makes difficult for an iPod user to capture still snaps while recording a movie.
The iPhone 5 offers a remarkable feature which allows you to capture still images from video while you are recording. It seems a little feature but Apple felt it suited only for iPhone 5 users. So here is the solution for iPod 5 users to allow them to use the same feature too.
First of all thanks to the jailbreak to nullify this decision and Still Capture Enabler delivers exactly what it purports to do. So if you own the iPod touch device and want to capture still images while also recording video clips, well now you can.
This tweak is absolutely free of charge, and available to download over at the BigBoss repo, automatically added to Cydia when you jailbreak your device. You will, of course, need an iPod touch in order to install Still Capture Enabler, and it will naturally need to be jailbroken, but if you meet those prerequisites, then you’re good to go.
Not only does it work well, but it looks 100% authentic, as if Apple decided to add the stills-in-video feature to the iPod touch. There are no configurable settings, either. You simply install, the button appears, and not only do you have the feature there on tap, but you also get that warm, fuzzy feeling of one-upmanship on Apple’s arbitrary restrictions.
So go and download this tweak to enjoy the full feature of iPhone 5 in iPod…
