Yes, it's a new "feature" where double tapping up brings up snapmatic. It's annoying as hell.

Do not like this new feature - it is useful in exactly one situation - Death From Above - other than that it's just a PITA since my go-to method of accessing my phone internet and contacts is to tap up first.

 

It's only a 10-month-old reflex, R* - I'm sure it will only take me a few dozen rage-inducing instances to relearn a new and slightly-less-convenient set of actions.

Funny thing is, when I double press for the camera it doesn't come up.

But when I go to call my mechanic, I get it every time!

 

It's just a timing thing, but it's kind of annoying. I'm remembering to wait for the phone to open before pressing up a second time now.

At least I'm not alone.

Nope, and I hate it. I hit up twice to get to my contacts and am constantly trying to take the worst pictures at the worst f*cking times.

It's a quick access to snapmatic, but honestly, it shouldn't be there. If you're too lazy to do something as simple as push the up on the D-Pad and manually select snapmatic, you shouldn't be playing video games.

Meh, I don't care. I'm pretty good at avoiding the shameful 'double tap'.

For mission popups - hold up for 1-2 seconds then release

For snapmatic - press up twice with a small delay between (but the second click should be before the phone is opened)

 

Kind of like 'tap tap' rather than 'TAPTAP'.

Don't double tap?

What happens is we are used to going double tap, across to speed access our buzzards or call a car, mugger etc. There's really long lag with the phone opening so now everytime you do that you get the camera... Really sh*tty change. It's gets you killed, crash your plane etc. It happens to me tons oif times everyday.

Yeah it's a small change but it's surprisingly annoying.

 

I get their idea - fast access to the camera, but it doesn't really come up fast enough to warrant a quick key anyway.

Faster patch pics for the Motorcycle Community! I like this new feature myself but it can be annoying at times.

Arrows to Athens

If there is a feature that needs to be added then it has to be a NPC priority. I mean there is a player right in front of me and my aim locks on to a cop 20 feet away or a random pedestrian on the sidewalk minding his/her own business. Like WTF Cockstar?

 

Anyone who wants a shortcut to the Snapmatic application must be mentally challenged. They should go to the Snapmatic just like most of us use the Quick Job to go to a mission. And that takes longer than going down once and left once and clicking x or a and I don't see a shortcut for Quick Job despite it being the most used function on the phone. Do you see anyone asking for a silly shortcut to that? Of course not. Some nerd proabably got mad that he got killed because he failed to get into snapmatic in time and take a pic of his chrome Adder and spammed Rockstar's twitter as a result.

It's one of the stupidest things added since the $50,000 car selling cap, Until it was removed of course.

 

This has got me killed so many times since it came out, One time I was calling mors mutual to get my Phoenix back and the stupid thing went into camera mode and somene came, Shot me and blew up my Cheetah, I had to cars 2 recover now because of this stupid feature :panic:.

Is this supposed to be some kind of joke?

 

 

I don't think it's a joke because I was wondering the same thing. I've not tried it yet, but in that you need to tap twice to access the camera, and you only need to tap it once to bring up the normal phone features, why is it a problem?

Well say you want to go to contacts quickly, to call mechanic or whatnot. If you are in a hurry (or you are just generally fast at navigating menus) then you will press up twice. f*cking annoying as sh*t.

Problem is when you get used to speed call.

Ah, I see. As I say I haven't tried the feature yet, but that kind of makes sense. It won't be a problem for me as I'm slow as sh*t. I tap up once then stare at my phone's features for about 10 seconds before it sinks in why I brought up the phone in the first place.

This whole time I thought it was bugged, or even something with my controller. I'm slightly upset knowing this crap is intentional.
