How are people so quick at filming viral videos?

Is there some (android) ap that makes it super quick to start video recording?

It seems like every time theres a cop tasering or walmart rampage there are people right there filming it right on cue.

No big mystery. Most phones with a video feature can start recording in a matter of seconds.

Bear in mind that there's usually an altercation going before "shit gets real". So if you see a dude arguing with a cop, whip out that phone and start filming because chances are you're gonna see a tasering!

Tap the camera icon, tap video, tap record. How hard is that?

I have wondered the same thing. It seems like the camera takes forever to open on my iPhone...

I have the HD camera record icon on my home screen on my Android phone. Very quick access if I need to shoot a tazer or bum fight video.
