    Background app listening for capture event from camera app

    I would like to make a python application for a N95 which trickers when the build in photo application takes a picture.
    How can I let my app run in the background, and pop up whenever the user captures a picture?

    I have seen other applications doing this, prompting the user asking if they want to share with an online photo gallery.

    Thanks!

    Those applications were most probably written in Symbian C++. It can't be done in Python.

    Thanks for your reply!

    Ok, so it might be possible to make an c++ extension to use with python?

    Do you have any clue how to do it in c++ code?
