Windows Phone 7 Mango will support 3rd party custom camera UI with camera button integration

With the ability to have raw access to the camera feed also comes the ability to create a whole new custom UI for the camera. 

Unlike Apple which has banned an app for using the volume button as a hardware shutter button, Microsoft has made it easy for devs to use the actual shutter button as intended, including access to half press to focus and full press to snap.

Developers will however not be able to fully replace the native app, as pressing the button outside the app will always launch the pretty good but somewhat flawed native Windows phone camera software.

At least however I am sure developers will remember to retain settings, unlike Microsoft 😉 .
